Missing teeth can cause you to hide your smile. Gaps in the smile can also lead to teeth shifting, making it difficult to keep them clean and healthy. You may feel self-conscious about your appearance due to tooth loss. This is no way to live. The team at Four Corners Dental Care in Woburn, MA provides several options for restoring the smile, including dental bridges.
Restoring the smile
We offer a fixed dental bridge, which contains an artificial tooth (pontic) between dental crowns. The crowns are placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap. We use natural looking materials so the bridge blends nicely with your smile.
The first step toward exploring if a dental bridge is your ideal solution is to schedule a consultation with our dentist, Dr. George P. Moutevelis. He has proudly taken care of patients in Woburn and surrounding areas for more than 30 years. Each year since 2003, he has been recognized by the Consumer Research Council of America with the “America’s Top Dentist” award.
Dr. Moutevelis will thoroughly examine your mouth, teeth, and gums. X-rays may be taken for a closer look at your soft tissues and jawbone. Dr. Moutevelis will ask about your goals to determine if dental bridge treatment is right for you. If a dental bridge is the right solution for improving the health, function, and beauty of your smile, Dr. Moutevelis will tailor a treatment plan to meet your individual needs.
An impression of your mouth is taken to ensure the dental bridge fits precisely. It is then sent to a high quality laboratory for fabrication of the bridge by highly skilled ceramists. While the bridge is being created, Dr. Moutevelis will make you a temporary appliance to give support and protect the teeth. Once the bridge is ready, it will be checked for fit, shade, and shape before placement.
A long-lasting solution
It is important to maintain excellent oral hygiene habits to keep the smile healthy for many years. With excellent care, the dental bridge can last up to 10 years or longer.
