Do you feel uncomfortable about the appearance of your smile due to tooth loss? If so, then instead of hiding your smile from the world, why not seek treatment? With cosmetic dentistry, we offer solutions to issues like missing teeth! At your Wheaton, IL dental practice, our team is ready to offer stunning results with our cosmetic dental bridges!
Don’t Ignore Your Tooth Loss
If you have lost one or more teeth, then let us know right away! Otherwise, the gap could alter how you eat, limiting your meal options. You could also feel embarrassed about your appearance. As your teeth shift due to the gap in your smile, this could cause complications like tooth decay and gum disease. The imbalance due to missing teeth could also cause TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding).
Same-Day Crowns and Bridges
Cosmetic dentistry isn’t just about removing teeth stains. In fact, we can use our custom crowns to repair damaged teeth, reshape malformed ones, and to improve the overall balance of your smile too. Not to mention, they also support a dental bridge!
Crowns are custom-made and attached in one visit, and shaded to blend with your smile seamlessly, instantly reshaping your smile. But what if you have lost a tooth? If you have between one and three missing teeth in a row, then our team could fabricate a bridge in one visit using lifelike materials. The prosthetic contains your new teeth with crowns attached to one or both sides. The crowns are connected to the teeth on each side of the gap, securing your new ones firmly in place. Again, we take steps to ensure your completed prosthetic blends with your smile and looks natural!
Creating Your Bridge
We begin by numbing your teeth on each side of the gap, known as the abutment teeth. We then remove a small amount of structure to make room for the prosthetic. Detailed digital images are then gathered, and used in an onsite milling machine to create your bridge. We then connect the crowns to the abutments. The ceramic material can be shaded to blend with your smile, and ensure a durable chewing surface.
If you have any questions about our approach to prosthetic dentistry with custom bridges or about any of our other cosmetic treatments, then contact our team today to learn more. A full and stunning smile is always possible!
