Full Porcelain Fixed Bridges Baton Rouge
One missing tooth can have a big effect on the appearance of your smile, and on your self-esteem. Two or three missing teeth significantly impact clear speech, ability to eat the foods you love, and oral health. Dr. Kurt LeJeune offer patients in the Baton Rouge and tristate area a natural-looking tooth replacement option – full porcelain fixed bridges.
What is a dental bridge?A full porcelain bridge is an artificial tooth attached to crowns. The crowns are cemented over teeth on each side of the gap, holding the replacement tooth securely in place. Dr. LeJeune’s bridges are virtually undetectable in the smile, and provide excellent functional stability. A single tooth may be replaced in this manner, or up to three in a row.
Why replace a missing tooth?A missing tooth should be replaced as soon as possible. Teeth adjacent to the gap quickly begin to shift inward, since they rely on one another for support.
- Create food traps where oral bacteria flourish, resulting in tooth decay and gum disease.
- Cause unusual wear.
- Can trigger bite changes from uneven pressure, that lead to TMJ dysfunction.
- Eventually require more dental work, and additional teeth could be lost.
