If you have lost teeth, whether one or several, you know how inconvenient and uncomfortable it can make some parts of life. It can disrupt eating, it can make speaking more difficult, and it can even change some of how your look. Most people don’t realize this, but teeth give shape to your cheeks. Missing teeth can cause cheeks to have a sunken appearance.
Luckily, there are several dental restorative treatments that can replace your lost teeth and help your speech and eating habits while giving you a glowing smile again. One of the most popular treatments is dental bridges. The bridge is a prosthetic made from ceramic and other materials shaped to replace the missing teeth you have lost. The teeth on both sides are also shaped to make a foundation that the bridge can be bonded to so it stays in your mouth.
Each bridge is custom-made for the patient’s circumstances. When you come into our office to get your bridge, Dr. Sindhu Gundabathula will take a casting of the missing teeth and the areas around them. The casting will then be sent to a dental lab where your crown will be made by a technician specific to your needs. The bridge can then be installed on your next visit.
