Dental Bridges in Richmond Hill and Thornhill
One of the challenges that denture wearers have is that dentures can slip out when chewing or laughing. This occurs because a denture rests on top of your gums instead of being properly anchored in place. In addition, a denture's fit can change due to your oral tissues changing over time.
To avoid these issues, a dental bridge may be a great option for you. A dental bridge is a type of dental restoration that uses an artificial tooth (or teeth) to fill in the spaces left by missing teeth. Besides strengthening your bite and preventing shifting, dental bridges enhance your speaking and chewing ability. They are extremely durable, stable and natural looking.
Dental bridges are customized to your smile’s natural shape and shade so ensure the most aesthetic pleasing results. Your dentist will first make impressions of your teeth that will be used to create your bridges. A small amount of your enamel is taken off to place the bridge. While you are waiting for your temporary bridge, the dentist will cover your exposed teeth with a temporary one. Once your permanent bridge is ready to be placed, your temporary one is taken off and the permanent one is attached. The dentist will double check to ensure the bridge is a secure and comfortable fit.
Our dental practice offers both porcelain bridges and porcelain-fused-to-metal bridges. To learn more about dental bridges, check out our smile gallery and see real actual results from our patients. Because at TS Dental, we’re fully committed to your smile health.
