Dental bridges are a dental restoration offered here at Tatum Point Dentistry that replaces a missing tooth by placing a fake tooth between two crowns made from high-quality porcelain. The result is essentially a bridge between two existing teeth to close the gap and improve your appearance almost instantly.
Dental bridges are a great option for those with a missing tooth that is looking for a quality, cost-effective solution to replacing their missing tooth. It is important to replace a missing tooth for several reasons including the fact that your teeth will shift, your facial shape will change over time, and the obvious chewing and speaking issues that may arise. While these aren't a completely permanent solution, dental bridges are well-known to last for up to 15 years in certain cases.

One of the more obvious solutions to replacing missing teeth are the well-known dentures or dental prosthetics. These serve a great purpose in that they can restore the appearance of your natural teeth after experiencing severe tooth loss, without breaking the bank. Dentures come in a few varieties: full and partial dentures. Full dentures are complete prosthetics designed to replace an entire set of teeth. Partial dentures are designed to replace a small row of teeth and provide stability and support.
Denture prosthetics are designed to closely resemble your natural teeth and gums. This is to allow you to regain a natural and healthy-looking smile. You may wonder how dentures stay in your mouth but the answer may surprise you! Unless using implant-supported dentures, denture prosthetics stay in your mouth via suction! The horseshoe shape that covers the roof of your mouth allows the dentures to stay in place and remain stable during speaking amongst other activities.
