Bridges - the perfect option to replace a missing tooth
When a tooth is lost to an accident or dental treatment, it can cause a great deal of distress and can be very damaging to someone’s self-confidence.
A missing tooth can pose real dental health problems as the surrounding teeth can move position in a short period of time, potentially ruining the aesthetics of a smile.
A dramatic change in tooth position can also cause problems with the bite or gums that can be expensive and time-consuming to correct later. A bridge can be an ideal solution to a missing tooth.
Bridges are fixed restorations which hold an artificial tooth in place by linking to adjacent teeth. They are usually made of a precious metal base, giving them a solid structure and making them hard-wearing.
The main advantages of having a bridge are:
- You can smile with confidence;
- You are able to eat and drink well ;
- Your confidence is restored;
- Most importantly your other teeth will not move around;
- Very convenient as you only require 2-3 visits over a few weeks.
