Missing teeth pose multiple health threats, and no holistic dentistry plan would be complete without dental prosthetics for tooth replacement. We use biocompatible materials to craft your dental crowns and bridges at the Sunnyvale dental office of William B. Langston III, D.D.S.
Dental crowns and bridges consist of between one and about three replacement teeth in a row with crowns on either end. The crowns hold the bridge in place by sitting on the healthy teeth on either end of the gap left by the missing teeth. Bridges have been used for decades to replace missing teeth, offering fixed tooth replacement that's sturdy, stable, durable, and even natural-looking. We'll craft your dental crown and bridge from biocompatible porcelain, making this option both healthy and cosmetically-friendly.
Why should you replace missing teeth? Missing teeth can actually lead to multiple health problems. They can contribute to gum disease, which can, in turn, contribute to a number of health problems, including heart attack and diabetes. Missing teeth can also lead to nutritional problems, as you can no longer chew a wide range of foods. Over time, missing teeth can cause your bite to change, putting extra stress and strain on your TMJ that creates chronic pain.
