If missing teeth are making you hesitant to smile, a fixed dental bridge can help bring back your smile confidence. In fact, Echeverri Dental Center is pleased to offer fixed dental bridges as a restorative option for our patients in Houston, Texas, with missing teeth.
Why is a fixed bridge a good choice for missing teeth? By bridging the smile gap left behind by missing teeth, a bridge will help you regain your confidence comfortably. With a dental bridge, you will be able to speak and chew normally, prevent remaining teeth from shifting position, and maintain your facial features. A bridge can also distribute the forces in your bite correctly by replacing lost teeth.
So how does a bridge work to bring back your confidence?
1-A fixed dental bridge helps those who have lost their pearly whites and still have plenty of available jawbone material to support an implant.
2-Our dentist fixes the bridge by cementing it or screwing it into the bone.
3-Fixed bridges are typically made of porcelain fused to metal.
4-With a fixed dental bridge your teeth emerge from the gums so you won’t have anything going over your gums or touching the palate.
5-Maintaing your bridge is simple: take good care of your remaining teeth and gums through daily cleaning and bi-annual professional cleanings and exams. With proper care, your bridge may last longer than ten years.
Consuming a healthy diet along with good oral habits go a long way to making sure your smile will support your fixed bridge, and vice versa.

Juan Echeverri, Elsa Echeverri, Mildred Kendrick, Elizabeth Briceno, and Paola Salazar, by calling 713-956-8767 today.
