A Solution for Missing Teeth
Losing a tooth can be a stressful and difficult event for anyone. You may wonder whether or not you can restore your familiar, natural smile now that you have an uneven gap between your teeth. If you’ve lost a tooth recently or had an extraction, then Dr. Cook wants you to know there is a way to bring back your wonderful smile using a beautiful fixed bridge.
Is a Bridge Right For Me?
Through a private consultation and precise evaluation with Dr. Cook, you may be considered an ideal candidate for a dental bridge. Typically this type of restorative option is used when:
- Healthy teeth are on either side of the missing tooth
- There is a need to keep teeth from drifting
- Restoration is needed for a natural bite
- for the Preservation of normal speech
- to Retain the shape of the face and cheeks
How to Get Started
Dr. Cook will work with you to come up with a plan to fit your needs. Typically, placing this type of dental appliance will require only a couple of office visits after the initial consultation and evaluation. On your first visit, you can expect the healthy teeth on either side of your missing tooth to be prepared for crowns. Impressions will then be taken so that a custom design bridge can be created to perfectly match this missing tooth. On your second visit, the crowns will be securely set on your healthy teeth with the natural replacement tooth filling the gap in between.
