Dental bridges fill the gap in your smile created by missing teeth. Not only can they give you a beautiful, full smile, but they also provide numerous functional benefits. They can improve chewing and speaking as well as protect your original teeth from misalignment.
Our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Alfredo Gapuz, uses non-metallic bridges to eliminate dark lines around the gumline. These types of bridges are also healthier for the gums, overall. We can use a Zirconia bridge in a full mouth bridge restoration, where Dr. Gapuz restores form and function through various dental procedures, while a Bruxir bridge is ideal for patients who grind their teeth at night.
If missing teeth are left untreated, this can cause your adjacent teeth to change position, which creates an imbalance within your teeth and gums. Missing teeth can also cause serious problems with chewing and speaking, as well as noticeable aesthetic effects. During your initial consultation, you and Dr. Gapuz will discuss the best treatment options to meet your needs. He uses advanced techniques to make your treatment as painless and comfortable as possible.
Dental bridges are composed of an artificial tooth with two porcelain crowns that are placed on the surrounding teeth. Porcelain crowns can provide more support and protection for the dental bridge, while reducing movement inside the mouth. Dental bridges can effectively fill out your smile and resolve numerous functional issues. Dr. Gapuz custom-designs your dental bridges to look and act like your natural teeth. They are often very strong and effective missing teeth replacement solutions for patients who may not be eligible for dental implants.
