Are missing teeth ruining your day? In addition to marring an otherwise charming smile, missing teeth can affect your speech, the health of your mouth, and your ability to eat the foods you love. We don’t think you should have to put up with the hassle of missing teeth, and we have several options to help.


One tried and true technique that is affordable and convenient is a dental bridge.  This restoration fills in the gap left by your missing tooth or teeth with replacement teeth that are created to blend in beautifully with your existing dentistry. The bridge is held in place by crowns that are fitted over either the immediately adjacent teeth or dental implants. We are happy to discuss both of these options and help you decide which is right for you.


Filling in missing teeth is more than just an aesthetic issue. Missing teeth mess up the alignment of your bite, changing the way your teeth come together. This can cause you to develop habits like grinding or clenching your teeth, which not only causes pain in the jaw but can also do a great deal of damage to the rest of your teeth. A bridge helps to complete the chewing surface so that you feel more comfortable.


If you’re ready to learn more, please give our office a call today. We’ll schedule a one-on-one evaluation with Dr. Patel so that you can look at all of your options for replacing your missing teeth and restoring your smile.
