How Dental Bridges Can Help Golden, CO Area Patients Restore Their Smile Following Tooth Loss
- Posted on: Jul 15 2019
At the practice of Drs. Nancy Gill and Dallas Kenson, patients of the Golden, CO community are able to obtain a wide range of services, including restorative care. Patients who are missing natural teeth from the smile will need to replace them as soon as possible to restore function and beauty. There are many options for patients to choose from, but many patients desire a traditional solution such as a dental bridge.
Dental bridges explained
Dental bridges are restorations that are commonly used for the replacement of one or more natural teeth in a row. This particular restoration “bridges the gap” that is left behind when a tooth is lost or extracted. At our practice, dental bridges are fabricated from porcelain, a material that closely mimics the appearance and strength of natural tooth enamel. In fact, our dentists will ensure that the restoration is made to match the existing teeth within the smile. This ensures seamless integration and a beautiful repair!
Who is a candidate for a dental bridge?
Most patients seeking a permanent restoration that matches the smile and restores the function and beauty of the smile are encouraged to ask about dental bridges. These restorations are highly desirable, and in many cases, patients have dental insurance coverage that covers a portion of the cost. Unlike dentures, dental bridges are bonded into place and are not removed each day, allowing patients to practically forget they even have a dental restoration in their mouth!
How long will a dental bridge last?
Taking care of the smile is incredibly important when it comes to maintaining restorations such as dental bridges. With proper maintenance, many of our patients are able to keep their bridges for ten years or longer!
