Total Dental Care in Guntersville, AL offers Porcelain fixed bridges as a solution for patients who are missing a tooth or several teeth.
Missing teeth can make chewing and speaking difficult, give a sunken facial appearance. Missing teeth can eventually lead to jaw and joint problems that are expensive to treat.
Porcelain fixed bridges can improve chewing and aesthetic appearance, offering a more permanent solution than dentures.
Bridges fill the gaps with artificial teeth. Our dentists will take a mold of the gap where a tooth is missing and then send it to a lab to have a custom bridge prepared. Before inserting the bridge, the surrounding teeth are prepared. Then the bridge is set into place and the artificial tooth is securely cemented to the surrounding teeth, restoring the natural appearance and function of the tooth that was missing.
Dental implants are permanent, stable alternative to bridges that do not rely upon surrounding teeth for support.
