Dental Bridges

Do you have missing teeth that are detracting from the beauty of your smile? Fill those gaps and make your smile complete again with the help of a dental bridge. Dentistry of Kingwood offers beautiful dental bridges as part of our cosmetic dentistry treatments that look natural and can permanently replace missing teeth to give you back a beautiful set of teeth that will give you something to smile about.

Missing teeth are more than just a cosmetic or aesthetic issue. Depending on where the gap is, it can affect your speech, chewing function and oral health. Dental bridges use an artificial tooth to fill the missing hole in your smile, attaching the tooth to your abutment teeth with bridgework. The new tooth looks and functions like a natural tooth and stays in place without the need for removal like a partial denture.

Is a Dental Bridge Right for You?

There are different types of dental bridges that can be used, but the most common are used for a missing tooth with existing teeth on either side. The two abutment teeth are covered with dental crowns that have the bridge work attached to them to hold the artificial tooth or teeth in place. This gives the new teeth a strong, durable foundation that allows for normal function that is comfortable while looking natural. Not all missing teeth can be replaced with a dental bridge but many times it is an option. To determine if a dental bridge is right for restoring your smile, come to see us at Dentistry of Kingwood. Dr. Ghattas can examine your teeth and offer recommendations for replacing your missing tooth. We offer beautiful dental bridges, as well as dental implants and partial dentures.

You deserve a smile that you can be proud to show the world. If missing teeth are hurting the look and health of your smile, contact Dentistry of Kingwood today for an appointment to learn more about replacing them with a dental bridge or one of our other restorative options.
