Do you have a missing tooth that is detracting from your otherwise pleasant smile? At Deborah McNeil-Amorteguy DDS in San Luis Obisbo CA we can fill the gap with a dental bridge, and help you get back your sensational smile!
A dental bridge could be the perfect answer for your missing tooth. It not only restores your smile; it can also help you chew and speak properly!
Traditional bridges are strong enough to replace a missing molar. In order to get one, you need to have natural teeth on each side of the gap left by the missing tooth. These teeth are prepared by removing their enamel so there is enough room for the crowns that are cemented on top of them. These two crowns support the artificial tooth.
Implant-supported bridges, on the other hand, are anchored in place by dental implants. These strong, durable titanium posts fuse with your jaw and last a lifetime, when properly cared for.
A dental bridge is just one of the tooth replacement options available at Deborah McNeil-Amorteguy DDS in San Luis Obisbo CA. People from Morro Bay, Pismo Beach, and Arroyo Grande also come to our practice for other restorative dentistry options. Contact us today!
