Losing a tooth as a child is exciting, the tooth fairy comes and you soon get the grown up tooth to replace it. However, as an adult it is not nearly as exciting and is often socially stigmatized.
Missing a tooth can cause many long term negative consequences to your teeth, smile, appearance and health. It is here that our amazing services for Cosmetic Dentistry in Owensboro come to your rescue!
Luckily, we have several great options for replacing missing teeth. A dental implant is typically your best option for tooth replacement, but a dental bridge, as pictured can often be a great option as well.
A dental bridge provides an artificial tooth in places where tooth loss has occurred by anchoring to the teeth on either side of the space. The teeth on either side of the space are called abutments and the false tooth is called a pontic.
Dental bridges can be made to look and feel just like your natural tooth. There are a variety of materials and dental labs your dentist can choose for the making of your bridge- and we want you to know that at the office of Dr. Valerie Warren, we choose only the best in both- making sure your result is of the highest quality and highest level of esthetics available!⠀⠀
