Dental Bridges in North York, Toronto
If you have missing teeth, you already know how many problems they can cause. Not only can missing teeth be embarrassing, it can make chewing and speaking more difficult as well. You may not be able to eat certain foods that you enjoyed before due to your weekend bite. Pronouncing certain words can also be hard since you’re unable to form the exact sounds as you did before when you had natural teeth.
However, when people think of replacing a missing tooth, they often think that a denture or implant restorations are the only options. But there’s another attractive, effective tooth replacement alternative: Dental Bridges. A bridge is comprised of one or more artificial teeth that effectively fill in the missing gaps. The bridge stays in place by using the remaining neighboring teeth for support.
Dental bridges offers amazing strength, durability, and aesthetically pleasing results. The dental restoration helps to support remaining teeth and increase your overall bite’s strength. By replacing the missing tooth’s gap, the dental bridge prevents shifting that can occur once a tooth is removed or falls out. In addition, because the tooth is made of high-quality porcelain, the tooth can be matched to your surrounding teeth’s natural shade.
To place a dental bridge, a small amount of enamel has to be removed from the surrounding teeth. The enamel is removed to ensure that the bridge fits properly. This means that patients with sufficient amounts of healthy tooth enamel are the best candidates for bridges. Dr. Rick Kochman and his associates will check to make sure that you’re a suitable candidate for bridges. Our practice has been open for 35 years, since 1981, so you can rest assured you're in good hands.
