Effective Tooth Replacement Options for All Our Patients
If you are missing one or more teeth in a row, our dentist may recommend dental bridges. Missing teeth is a common condition, so you can feel comfortable in visiting our dentist with this concern. Fortunately, Dr. Nils Sandstrom can provide our patients with many suitable tooth replacement options, although dental bridges are the most common. Dental bridges are permanent, non-removable oral appliances used to replace missing teeth and:
- Ensure your adjacent teeth stay in place
- Restore your smile to full function and beauty
- Close the gaps between your teeth
- Are strong enough to successfully function as molars
- Can be supported by implants, crowns, or natural teeth
- Be used as an alternative to partial dentures
Made completely custom for your smile, dental bridges fit perfectly and can match your natural color of dentition. However, if we whiten the surrounding teeth and lighten the shade of your dental bridges, these appliances can also brighten your smile noticeably. It is important to maintain the white color of your teeth, though, to have a uniform smile appearance.
Normally, it can take one or two visits to complete the application process of your dental bridge(s). These replacement teeth are designed to last for many years, though, so a few visits with us is well worth it. Call us at 708-388-2500 for more information on dental bridges in Palos Heights, Illinois, and to schedule your appointment to the office of Nils F. Sandstrom, DDS. We hope to hear from you soon!
