Let Our Dentist Bring Your Smile Back
When you are missing a couple of teeth, you may also be missing your confidence. Even when the gap is in the back of the mouth, it can be noticeable when you smile wide or open your mouth to laugh. Being self-conscious about this could mean you smile and laugh less. Our dentists in West Los Angeles want to ensure you are confident and happy with your smile. It may be time to consider a dental bridge to replace your missing teeth. The procedure is simple and relatively painless, and can leave you with the self-confidence you deserve.
Call Elegant Smile Dental at (310) 707-1008 and schedule an appointment with our dentists in West Los Angeles to get fitted for a dental bridge.
What Can Happen When You Lose Teeth
When you lost a tooth as a child, it was an exciting accomplishment. As a child, though, you had adult teeth ready to grow in and replace the missing tooth. As adults, we don’t have that. When you lose a tooth as an adult—whether from decay, an accident, or some other reason—it changes your whole mouth. The remaining teeth shift, creating gaps where there were none before.
Other issues caused by losing adult teeth include:
- Unusual wear patterns on remaining teeth
- Increased risk of disorders related to TMJ
- Higher chances of gum disease and tooth decay
- Tooth on opposite arch may have extreme eruption
Our Dental Team Can Help You Fill in the Gaps
One way to prevent adverse effects from missing teeth is to have a dental bridge installed. This simple and common procedure is literally a way to bridge the gap. A fixed dental bridge is cemented into place, supported by the teeth on either side. Our dentists in West Los Angeles boast more 36 years of combined experience with a full range of dental procedures, and we are currently accepting new patients. We accept many insurance plans and offer 0% financing through CareCredit. At Elegant Smile Dental, we take pride in giving you back your smile.
