Tooth Crown Solutions For Missing Teeth In Plano

Smiling girl with dental crowns and bridges thanks to a Plano dentist near Frisco and Allen TX.Do you have missing teeth that are causing you grief? Does having missing teeth make you want to avoid going out in public, or afraid of having people close to you? Do you chew more on one side of your mouth to help compensate for missing teeth, and are those teeth getting worn down?

There are a number of options to help replace your teeth and restore functionality and a great smile. One of the options you may want to consider are dental bridges.

A dental bridge is a dental device that is attached in your mouth to a dental crown on each side. This “bridge” fills in the gap between the two crowns, and gives the appearance of there being natural teeth.

There are a number of benefits to getting a dental bridge, including:

  • Dental bridges can help keep your other teeth from wearing down. If you were chewing on one side because of missing teeth, by having a bridge you can return to chewing where your missing teeth were.
  • A dental bridge looks just like your natural teeth. By having a dental bridge put in, you can smile and laugh with confidence again.
  • Dental bridges are custom made to fit your mouth. They not only restore functionality, but they also are comfortable since they are made specifically to fit you.
  • One of your dental bridge options is to get a fixed bridge. A fixed dental bridge is permanent, which can be a great option for those who do not want a removable bridge.
  • Removable dental bridges can be a great option for those who want to be able to take their bridge out. The bridge is attached to the tooth crowns on each side with wires, much like a retainer.

If you choose to get a dental bridge, our skilled and caring team will attach it to the teeth on each side of the missing tooth/teeth using dental crowns. The bridge itself can be made with a combination of different materials including gold, alloys, and especially porcelain for its natural looking appearance.
