Do you have embarrassing gaps and spaces in your smile? Have you lost one or more teeth? Do you dream of restoring your smile to its former glory? Dr. Michael B. Wilhite may recommend a dental bridge in Davidson, North Carolina. A dental bridge consists of two porcelain crowns with one or more porcelain false teeth in between. Dental bridges can be supported by natural teeth or implants. A dental bridge can:
- Restore your smile
- Restore your confidence
- Restore the ability to chew and speak properly
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Properly distribute the forces in your bite
- Prevent teeth from drifting
To prepare your mouth for a dental bridge, our dentist will prepare the abutment teeth (those on either side of the gap). A small amount of enamel is removed to allow room for the crowns. An impression is made of the teeth so the crowns and false tooth can be prepared. When the bridge has been constructed, the fit is checked. Any needed adjustments are made and the dental bridge is cemented into place.
We welcome you to call Davidson Cosmetic & Family Dentistry to learn more about porcelain bridges and to schedule an appointment with Dr. Michael B. Wilhite. Our team is eager to serve you and your smile!
