If you have a desire to replace your missing teeth with a product that gives you the security and functionality you need, you are a great candidate for a dental bridge!
A dental bridge in Opelika, Alabama, is made of two or more crowns that are placed over the remaining natural teeth on both sides of the gap. Between the crowns are false teeth that improve both your functionality and appearance of your smile! A dental bridge can also restore your smile, maintain the shape of your face, and prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of place. In addition, it can restore your ability to properly chew and speak again, and it can provide the force you need in your bite.
If you are interested in utilizing a dental bridge, we ask that you expect two trips to Tatum & Cox. Your first visit will involve Dr. Tatum or Dr. Cox shaving the surfaces of your natural teeth to prepare them for the crowns. When they are the proper shape and size, your dentist will make impressions of your teeth and will send them to the in-office dental lab where the bridge will be created. During your second visit, your dentist will check the bridge and make any adjustments to make sure it fits perfectly in your mouth. When we find the proper fit, the bridge will be permanently cemented into place.
