It is very unpleasant to have missing teeth, or even a single missing tooth. Those who smile big and smile often live much happier lives, and Lucky Dental wants our patients to feel confident with their smiles. If you feel self conscious about your smile because of missing teeth, ask your dentist about getting a bridge. Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth, and they fasten onto existing teeth to “bridge” the missing section. Common material include gold, metal, alloy, or porcelain to ensure that that the bridge is strong and durable. Bridges do more than help your self esteem. Missing teeth can also cause structural damage to your jaw, making it difficult to eat or speak properly. Please communicate with your dentist about any questions or concerns you might have about dental restorative services.
