Are you embarrassed due to gaps in your smile where you have lost one or more teeth? Losing teeth can affect your self-confidence in social situations; it can also jeopardize your oral health. At Pure Smiles Dentistry, we offer several cosmetic dentistry options for our patients that have lost teeth and want to restore their smile. One beautiful option for filling the gaps in your smile is a dental bridge, which we customize for you at our office in Marietta.
When you lose one or more teeth, it not only changes the way your smile looks, it can put your other teeth at risk. Gaps in your smile leave room for your teeth to shift. Teeth on either side of the missing teeth can begin to move into the space. This can create crooked teeth that are hard to keep clean and may eventually be lost due to disease or decay.
Dental bridges can help support your existing teeth and fill the gaps in your smile. Dental bridges are created by using your existing teeth for support. The artificial teeth that fill the gaps in your smile are attached to bridgework that is supported by your teeth. Dental crowns are used to attach the bridgework to your teeth. Your newly restored smile will look natural and be functional for chewing and eating. Plus, it will help support your other teeth and keep them in place for a healthier smile that can help boost your self-confidence.
If you have lost one or more teeth, you do not need to live with an incomplete smile. Our restorative dental team at Pure Smiles Dentistry will help you replace missing teeth and give you back your beautiful smile.
