Have you lost a tooth? Bridge the gap through our Libertyville area dentist, Dr. Rule. Whether it’s a highly visible frontal tooth or a valuable molar, a dental bridge can cover a surprising amount. How will you benefit?
Hockey players and small children can freely flaunt smiles with missing teeth and receive no judgment. But such immunity pretty much ends there. A faulty smile in the general populace can be enough to make a potential employer or others subconsciously conclude, “This person must have self-destructive habits, be utterly destitute, or completely lacking in self-worth” to permit such a situation to continue untreated. Surely, you’d like to avoid such unfair inferences.
Rest assured, a dental bridge could restore your smile, help maintain the shape of your face, and prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position. How is this accomplished?
Traditional bridges involve creating a crown for the tooth on either side of the missing tooth, with a pontic in between. These are the most common type of bridges and are generally made of either porcelain fused to metal or ceramics.
Enjoy having re-established your distribution of proper biting forces, reclaiming full chewing capabilities, and speaking with uninhibited speech — all thanks to the durable materials and careful design of your aesthetically pleasing new “tooth.”
