Dental bridges are a viable restoration option in the event of a missing tooth. If you lose a tooth, it is best to get it replaced by our dentist in Beverly Hills right away because allowing the gap to remain could cause the surrounding teeth to shift positions, and it could lead to the formation of periodontal pockets. In addition to the health benefits, there are additional advantages to getting a dental bridge.
Your bridge can be customized to match the color of the surrounding teeth, so your smile will not lose any part of its aesthetics. And your bridge can be made out of porcelain, which is very difficult to stain. An advantage that bridges have over dentures is that they are in a fixed position. Dentures can slide around and slip out of your mouth, but bridges are attached firmly to the adjacent teeth. They are also fairly quick to install in your mouth. During the first appointment with our expert in dental bridges in Beverly Hills, the adjacent teeth will be prepared, an impression will be taken, and a temporary bridge will be installed. For the second appointment, your new bridge is fixed into your mouth.
