Cosmetic Bridges are Affordable and Worth It
Dental bridges at Dentistry On 10, Mississauga, provide an artificial replacement for teeth that are missing, typically involving more than one tooth. Ideally, a bridge works by attaching to neighbouring, existing natural teeth that are still anchored in place and healthy. A bridge can immediately restore the natural appearance and reverse the jawline damage that eventually happens due to the loss of dental pressure regularly exerted by a healthy set of teeth. Read on to learn more about dental bridges, their costs and benefits.
Many Patients Can Obtain Dental Bridges. No One is Left Out
There tends to be an impression that dental bridges and other dental work cost an arm and a leg. This is only a myth. Dental bridges are extremely common and are applied almost as frequently as dentures. In fact, the cost of not doing anything can be greater and much worse down the road as the mouth, and facial features begin to deteriorate.
Dental bridges provide:
- Both a functional and structural benefit
- Provide a far more solid platform with which you can eat without worrying (far better than dentures)
- Helping restore cosmetic features
Hence, they are a well-accepted dental solution that most dental insurance companies are familiar with.
The procedure can be completed within a few dental visits, on average taking about three at most:
- The first visit is the evaluation
- The second involves the fitting and adjustments, and
- The final visit, where the patient leaves with a new bridge installed
Bridges can be applied as partials, which replace individual missing teeth, or full bridges, which replace multiple teeth together. Again, unlike dentures, bridges are permanent and held in place by adjacent natural teeth.
