Why Arden area patients may consider a dental bridge for replacement of a missing tooth

Replacing missing teeth is important for many reasons. Whether it is extraction, trauma, or loss from disease that results in an empty space, this can be a serious issue. It can reduce chewing and biting efficiency, affect the aesthetics of the smile, and can cause the existing teeth to drift and cause extra gaps. Addressing this situation as soon as possible is highly recommended. This is why Arden area dentist, Dr. Christopher Port, of Asheville Smile Center, may suggest dental bridges for tooth replacement.

Tooth replacement with a dental bridge is simple and affordable. Dental bridges are porcelain restorations that are fabricated by bonding two dental crowns to pontics (false porcelain teeth) to create a single piece that is adhered over the adjacent teeth for support. Bridges allow patients to improve the function and aesthetics of their smiles quickly and easily. The entire process takes just a few weeks and patients can enjoy their new restorations for many years.

Dr. Christopher Port of the Asheville Smile Center serves people in and around the Arden area, and can help patients with tooth replacement solutions. Dental bridges are just one of many options available including dental implants and dentures. Dental bridges do have several advantages. They are fast, affordable, and permanent. They are bonded into place, unlike dentures, which need to be removed every day for cleaning and care, and they are less expensive than dental implants. Many patients will find dental bridges to be a great middle-of-the-road option for tooth replacement and will discover that they a desirable option in many situations.

Patients who are considering dental bridges should speak with Dr. Christopher Port to determine if they are a good candidate for this treatment. Dental bridges are great for many men and women who are missing one or more teeth and need to repair their smiles. A thorough examination and a consultation appointment is the best place to start. Contact the Asheville Smile Center today to book a visit and learn about the ways in which dental bridges can surpass alternative options such as implants and dentures.
