Finding reliable dental bridge services in Hamilton, Ontario, is not difficult, thanks to Dentistry on Parkdale. Before you choose the best location to meet your needs when it comes to dental bridges, it is good to learn a little about the process and what it entails for the patient missing teeth and in need of dental restoration.
The name says it all. A dental bridge is a permanently attached dental appliance that spans the gaps between two teeth. It is an affordable option that allows you to replace broken, damaged, or missing teeth without costly implants. Thanks to modern dental technology, the bridge looks like natural teeth.
Dr. Karen Ho carefully crafts the dental bridge to fit seamlessly into your mouth based on dental impressions, x-rays, and other techniques. The dental bridge typically includes two dental crowns, one for each end (or attachment) point, and one or more prosthetic teeth to fill in the gap.
In the end, you will have a beautiful, functional smile that no longer has gaps where teeth are missing.
Sometimes dental bridges aren’t the best solution to consider. If you have gaps in your smile or missing teeth, we’ll work with you to help decide the best treatment plan for your individual needs and help you accomplish specific goals. Among the things a dental bridge can help with are the following:
As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to consider a dental bridge if you have a dental concern that has left a gap in your smile. But that isn’t the solution for everyone. Sometimes other solutions may work more effectively, such as dental implants for a single tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire arch. Some people may prefer partial or complete dentures. That is especially the case if your dental health is beginning to take a toll on your overall health.
Ultimately, working with a knowledgeable team can help you make a better-informed decision based on your choices and what will work for your needs now and into the future.
