Missing teeth can have serious consequences for your oral health. An absent tooth increases both your risk for gum disease and the stress placed on the surrounding gums, which may shrink. Additionally, a gap may cause the surrounding teeth to shift. It can also lead to speech difficulties, give your face a sunken appearance and make you shy about smiling. If you have a missing tooth, it’s time to consider filling the gap with a dental bridge
. At Randall Perry, D.D.S., PA
, we offer the latest in porcelain dental bridges and dental bridge repair for Statesville
patients who want to show the world their best smiles.
Bridges come in two options: temporary and permanent. A fixed bridge for teeth offers maximal stability, whereas a removable bridge is easier to clean.
Tooth decay and old fillings can weaken your teeth and darken your smile. If you are suffering from a severe cavity or have noticed that an old crown has become discolored or separated from the gum line, new dental crowns are a simple solution.
Our staff can help you brighten your smile and achieve better oral health with a new crown. Temporary crowns may serve as placeholders during dental procedures whereas permanent crowns offer lasting support and durability. A new crown not only makes you feel more confident about your smile but also helps your teeth function better.
Crowns and bridges aren’t just cosmetic. They are essential to preventive dentistry
and can help you avoid the consequences of tooth decay and gum disease. When you’re ready to make the most of your smile, call us at 704-881-0990
