Highland residents find out more about dental bridges for missing teeth

Missing teeth can affect your ability to eat, speak clearly, and can damage the appearance of your smile. People who are missing teeth often feel self-conscious and may even avoid smiling altogether.

There is good news if you are looking for a treatment to restore your missing teeth and bring back beauty to your smile, Dr. Terry Vines and the team at Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry have years of experience helping their patients regain their smile and confidence with crowns and bridges.

What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are a popular method of restoration for teeth that have been impacted by decay or trauma. One of the most common uses is for teeth that cannot be treated with a dental filling. Crowns are also used for teeth that have received root canal treatment, or used to cover teeth that are improperly shaped or severely stained. Crowns can be made from a tooth-colored material to blend in naturally with the rest of your smile. They are a durable and strong solution to help save teeth from potential extraction.

What are dental bridges?

Dental bridges are used for patients who are missing teeth and incorporate dental crowns. They are made of one or more artificial teeth with a crown on each end of the bridge to keep the restoration in place. Bridges get their name from their ability to quite literally "bridge the gap" between missing and natural teeth.

How do I take care of my crown or bridge?

Care for your dental crown or bridge is identical to that for natural teeth. Proper oral hygiene including brushing twice each day and flossing, including under the bridge, will help keep the restoration clean. In addition, we advise patients to avoid biting down on hard objects or clenching teeth as it can cause the restoration to crack.

At Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry, we care about the health and appearance of our patients' smiles. In addition to crowns and bridges, we offer a wide variety of other restorative and cosmetic dental services. If you are in the Highland area and you would like to learn more about our offerings, call us today to schedule a consultation.
