You may only have one or two missing or damaged teeth. Even so, this situation can make you feel self-conscious or uncomfortable in social settings or while at work. If you have been hiding or compensating for missing teeth when you eat, speak or smile, call 818-347-1550 today to make an appointment for a dental bridge in Woodland Hills, California, with our dentist, Dr. Kathy Daroee, at Kathy Cosmetic Dentistry.
Even a single missing tooth can make life complicated. You may not be interested in a partial denture or in the surgery needed for dental implants. You might find a compromise with a dental bridge. This is an excellent replacement option for a single tooth or two or more teeth adjacent to one another. A bridge is a non-removable tooth replacement that is held in place by crowns on each end of the space in your smile. A bridge can restore your ability to eat and speak effectively, keep your remaining teeth in place and enhance your appearance. You do not remove a bridge to clean it and it can be brushed just like your natural teeth and Dr. Daroee can explain the best way to floss it. With the proper care your bridge can last for up to ten years.
