If you are missing a few teeth, it’s time to review your tooth replacement options in Oroville, California. Beyond the obvious impact on your smile, missing teeth affect your oral function and eventually lead to bone loss and bite misalignment. Since you don’t want to see that gap in your mouth wreak havoc on your oral health, you may consider dental implants or dentures to restore your missing teeth. However, dental bridges are equally up to the task. If you have a gap between two healthy teeth, Daniel Appel, DDS, Inc., uses porcelain bridges to complete your smile.
To create a dental bridge, each of the adjacent healthy teeth are prepared for crowns. Our high quality laboratory creates beautiful, strong crowns for each of these teeth with an extra crown connected between the two crowns. When seated the new suspended crown sits flush with your gum tissue and makes it appear as though a natural tooth is in the previously empty space.
This is generally a two appointment process, and while the laboratory is creating your bridge, you will have a plastic temporary crown protecting the reshaped teeth.
During the second visit, we will remove the temporary bridge and install the permanent bridge in place. We will make the necessary adjustments to make your bridge fit well and look natural.
If you want to replace your teeth with dental implants, you can feel confident because this tooth replacement is superior when replacing lost teeth. Here are the many benefits of dental bridges:
