Are you feeling devastated after losing one or more teeth?
Whether due to trauma or disease, there is now a hole in your smile that cannot be filled in naturally. Your body cannot create a whole new tooth after losing one, so what can you do?
The solution is simple: discover dental bridges with Dr. Kovacevic in Greensburg, PA.
Fill in the Gap in Less Time
Unlike a dental implant, which can take many weeks to a few months to be completed, a dental bridge can be crafted and installed within a few short visits.
The first step is to take images of the site, and take a cast of your smile. In a laboratory setting, the model will be used to create your dental bridge(s), and then Dr. Kovacevic will install them in your smile.
Understand that a minor amount of enamel may need to be removed from the adjacent teeth next to the gap. This is so that the bridge fits comfortably over the teeth and feels secure in place.
Look and Feel Great
You don’t just want a dental device that simply fills in the gap in your smile.
You want a treatment that fills the gap, improves your appearance, and improves your confidence, and dental bridges can be the answer. These bridges are not just crafted to cover up gaps, but can also be shaped and shaded to match your neighboring teeth precisely.
How Do Bridges Compare to Other Treatments?
Dental bridges are not the only tooth replacement treatment available. Two other common treatments are dental implants and dentures, but all three have their advantages and disadvantages.
For example, dental implants are more permanently placed, meaning that they are embedded into the jawbone for stability and support.
Dentures are meant to replace partial or full arches of missing teeth. They are often made to be removable, for daily cleaning and maintenance.
