Can I fix cosmetic issues with dental bridges?
Dental bridges have been used for decades to complete the smiles of those who have lost a tooth. Dr. Advani and the team at our Elk Grove Village, IL dental office have helped many of our patients enjoy a full smile by using dental bridges.
Nothing can mar a beautiful smile more than a missing tooth. The loss of a tooth is a serious dental issue that can lead to serious oral health problems, but that's not the worst of it. It doesn’t matter how or why you lost the tooth. You still feel self-conscious and embarrassed wherever you go, as if that space in your mouth speaks for you!
A dental bridge is a single unit that is usually made up of three parts and includes an artificial tooth, or pontic, suspended by two crowns. The crowns are made to fit the teeth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth, providing strong support for the artificial tooth that sits in the center. Dental bridges not only restore your appearance but they also enable you to eat and speak comfortably.
If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of dental bridges, please call our Elk Grove Village, IL dental office. We will be happy to arrange a smile consultation with Dr. Advani so he can answer your questions and go over all your options.
