Tooth decay, gum disease, and injury are common causes of missing teeth.
When life gets in the way of a perfect smile, there are solutions. Aaron came to us to help him bridge the gap to a perfect smile.
Amongst the various options for tooth replacement, he chose to go with a porcelain bridge to regain his smile, as well as regain a lot of the functionality of his missing teeth.
Because the strength and natural appearance of porcelains keeps improving, we used a porcelain bridge to enhance the cosmetic appearance of his front teeth rather than using a traditional bridge supported by metal. We also added a little pink to match the color of his gums to replace some of the missing gum tissue. This also helped correct the symmetry of his teeth so that some didn’t appear longer.
When it comes to replacing multiple teeth, especially front teeth, a porcelain bridge can be a great alternative to dental implants. A dental bridge is a less-invasive procedure and also requires much less wait time to complete. A bridge can cosmetically enhance the look of your smile by closing the gaps, and it can offer these additional benefits as well.
Enjoy your new smile, Aaron! It’s already making Burien a little brighter!
