The loss of a tooth as a result of gum disease or an oral injury is a big impact on your life because it affects your ability to speak properly, chew well, and maintain the natural shape of your face. A missing tooth can lead to decreased self-confidence as well as a greater likelihood of struggling with dental issues. However, receiving a custom-made dental bridge can prevent dental health concerns and restore the original state of your smile.
Alberto A. Herrero, DDS offers dental bridges for patients who are looking for tooth replacement options to address missing teeth. A dental bridge is an artificial tooth or teeth set between two dental crowns and formed from durable materials such as porcelain and gold. It is designed to be compatible with your existing teeth.
We will form impressions of your tooth gap and surrounding teeth to create a model for the dental bridge, and then recontour the teeth that need to accommodate the dental crowns. Following the creation of the dental bridge, we will cement it in place after ensuring that everything fits as it should.
Once your dental bridge procedure is complete, you can once again enjoy the full function of your mouth, though you should stick to soft foods for the first few days and always remember to clean your dental bridge daily.
You are welcome to call 734-222-9140 today and arrange an appointment with our doctor, Dr. Alberto A. Herrero, to discuss tooth replacement options such as a dental bridge in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
