Your Lebanon, MO dentist, Dr. Jerry Cox, is sensitive to the needs of his patients, especially those with tooth loss. Missing teeth can be a source of insecurity and embarrassment. If you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth and would like a natural looking tooth replacement to get your smile back to its beautiful, well-functioning condition, a dental bridge by Dr. Cox may be the solution for you.
Dental bridges are fixed and do not require removal for cleaning. A dental bridge is an excellent option if:
- You are missing a tooth or teeth
- Teeth are moving or rotating on either side of a gap, causing discomfort
- You desire to chew normally again
- You would like a more stable alternative to a denture
- You want your restoration to look and function like your natural teeth
What can I expect if I choose a dental bridge?
If you think a dental bridge might be a viable solution, Dr. Cox will speak with you about your personal goals and expectations. He will take impressions of the area to be restored and then create a piece that fits perfectly in the open space. He will bond either end of the bridge to the adjacent teeth, ensuring the bridge is stable and will not move when you eat.
If you meet the requirements for CEREC same day services, Dr. Cox and his Lebanon dentist team can replace a missing tooth in just one visit!
There are many health benefits to filling a gap with a dental bridge. The adjoining teeth will no longer be free to rotate or move, preserving your bite. You will not suffer from ‘sunken face’ and you will be able to eat all of your favorite foods without hassle. You will also regain a beautiful, confident smile. Your dental bridge is flawlessly matched to your natural teeth, so there is no indication you have had a restoration placed.
