Five Reasons Dental Bridges Will Put a Smile on Your Face

Over time, missing teeth can damage your appearance, your confidence, and your dental health. But dental bridges can save your smile in the following five ways.

  1. Get Back to a Full Smile

Missing teeth can make you long for the way you looked with a full, natural smile. But you can fully restore your smile with a popular dental care option for replacing missing teeth called dental bridges.

  1. Keep Your Face in Shape

According to family dentistry experts, missing teeth can actually affect the shape of your face because they cause your jawbone and facial musculature to change over time. But by replacing missing teeth with dental bridges, you can maintain your proper facial tone and the natural look of the face.

  1. Speak More Naturally

If missing teeth are affecting the way you speak and making it hard to be understood, you don’t have to suffer in silence. Simply replacing these teeth with dental bridges can allow you to talk with ease and be better understood.

  1. Stop Dental Care Discomfort and Disorders

Missing teeth can cause chewing problems and jaw disorders like TMJ. Family dentistry experts say that losing even a couple of teeth can severely impact your bite and lead to major dental care issues. But dental bridges may help prevent these problems by maintaining your natural tooth structure.

  1. Avoid Shifting Teeth

When you are missing teeth, your existing teeth may shift into the extra space and affect how you look, feel, and function. But when dental bridges fill in these spaces, teeth are supported on all sides and have no place to shift. As a result, dental bridges prevent your teeth from shifting and save you the time and expense of correcting these problems with other dental care treatments.
