Do you have a missing tooth that is detracting from your otherwise pleasing teeth? Let Stephen Ratcliff Family & Cosmetic Dentistry fill the gap for you and help you get your unforgettable smile back with general dentistry in Arlington! A dental bridge could be the perfect answer for your missing tooth and help you chew and speak properly.
General Dentistry in Arlington
A bridge incorporates two or more crowns on either side of the gap created by your missing tooth. These two anchoring teeth allow a false tooth to be held in place where the missing tooth should be. The false tooth that is placed in the gap is called a pontic. Bridges can contain one or more pontics. A pontic can be matched to the surrounding teeth if you decide on using a porcelain material. If you’d like, a pontic can also be fabricated using gold or metal alloy.
Dr. Ratcliff and his experienced dental team will work closely with you to be sure that your bridge has a perfect fit. Our patients are often amazed at home much of a difference it makes to improve your smile with general dentistry in Arlington. Then one of our proficient hygienists will show you how to clean under and around the bridge to ensure that no cavities develop in the nooks and crannies of your restoration.
