At Short Pump Family Dentistry, we can address a full spectrum of dental needs in one place, including those that involve tooth replacement. Dr. Tse is an experienced dentist who understands the careful blend of artistry and skill that it takes to rebuild your smile after missing teeth. Our Richmond office offers several restorative dentistry options for teeth replacement, including custom dental bridges.
A dental bridge is used to “span the gap” of one or more missing teeth in a row. This type of restoration is designed to help patients who have missing teeth as well as healthy surrounding teeth. Bridges work by using one or more prosthetic teeth that attach to dental crowns on either side. These may be crowns placed on your natural teeth or crowns that are placed on top of dental implants. In either case, we can ensure your new teeth will be anchored securely to create a confident and natural-looking smile.
Most importantly, a dental bridge can help patients avoid the detrimental effects of missing teeth. Even one missing tooth can produce consequences that jeopardize your appearance as well as your oral health. By not replacing a missing tooth, patients are subject to the shifting of neighboring teeth, which can put them at greater risk for decay as well as disrupt their bite alignment. Speech and chewing function may also be compromised when your smile is incomplete.
At Short Pump Family Dentistry, we are fully equipped to help you avoid the drawbacks of missing teeth and provide a beautiful, top-quality dental bridge. Dr. Tse will walk you through the entire process to ensure you are comfortable with your tooth replacement process. Our office is designed to help you feel at home, and our team members believe in treating patients like family.
