How Dental Bridges Can Help Your Smile

Is your smile missing teeth? When people have missing teeth, smiling can leave them feeling embarrassed and self-conscious. Dental dental bridgesbridges provide an instant fix, creating a beautiful, confident smile. Dr. Susan Hockaday and Dr. Jim Baucom in Charlotte, NC, offer state-of-the-art bridges to their patients. Read on to find out how bridges can help your smile.

Beautify Your Smile- A dental bridge will restore your smile and improve your appearance. A bridge is a dental restoration that fills the space where one or more teeth are missing. A crown is made for the teeth on either side of the empty space with a fabricated tooth in between them. Bridges look great and match natural teeth exceptionally well. 

Help You Chew Food- When you are missing one or more teeth, you lose your ability to chew food properly. Many people who are missing teeth opt for eating less nutritious foods because they are easier to chew. Dental bridges will help restore your ability to chew food. With dental bridges, you will be able to eat all your favorite foods in comfort and with confidence. 

Improve Your Speech- Some people take their teeth for granted — until they start losing them. Our teeth play an important role in speech and allow for the proper pronunciation of words. Losing your teeth can make it difficult for you to pronounce certain words. Dental bridges can improve your clarity of speech. 

Prevent Teeth Shifting- Having missing teeth is a serious matter. When teeth are missing, the surrounding teeth begin to shift at an accelerated rate. A dental bridge can prevent your permanent teeth from drifting out of place. When a bridge fills in your smile's gaps, your natural teeth are supported on all sides and have no place to shift. Consult with a dentist in Charlotte to find out if dental bridges are right for you.
