Dental Bridges

...the art of individualized care
Dallas, Texas

Missing teeth are more than just cosmetically unappealing. Missing teeth also significantly increase the risk of disease and decay in your other teeth and gums. Additionally, missing teeth can affect your speech. If you have any missing teeth, please see a qualified cosmetic dentist - such as Dr. Taylor - right away.

The most common way to fix missing teeth is to install a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a false tooth. It's attached to the mouth in a special way - it's attached between two of your natural teeth via two porcelain crowns. The false tooth - which is also called a "pontic" - is suspended between the two crowns. The two crowns act a bridge, holding the pontic in place.

Dental bridges are not dentures and, as such, dental bridges are not removable. There are several different types of dental bridges - they differ mainly in the way that they are installed - and only a qualified cosmetic dentist can determine which is right for you. Also, only a qualified cosmetic dentist - such as a graduate of the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies - can properly match the color of your bridge to that of the rest of your mouth. That's why it's so important to choose a dentist specifically trained in cosmetic dentistry, such as Dr. Taylor.

Missing teeth lead to more dental problems than almost any other cosmetic dental-related problem. If you have any missing teeth, you should contact a dentist right away. A healthier, more pleasing smile is available, and sooner than you may think!
