If you have been unlucky enough to have lost a tooth or a couple of teeth recently in Leeds, it can be quite a traumatic and stressful time, for a lot of people will consider that with those teeth have gone their looks, and with their looks has gone their life. But not only is there the vanity drama, there are knock-on health issues to consider as well; where the teeth have been lost, other teeth can start to move and it’s during this period that the mouth is vulnerable to all sorts of infection. The best way to avoid these complications, and keep your looks, is to fill the gap with a replacement and one of the ‘darlings’ on the market right now is the dental bridge. Its success can be found in its longevity- it’s been around for years. These can be made to look very realistic and fit in with the rest of the remaining teeth- they are durable and reliable, giving you a good 20 years of action. They are simply bonded onto the teeth that remain by, if its fitted to a single tooth, wires and resin, or if the lost tooth is between a line, cemented to two adjacent teeth via crowns. Some of modern materials such as zirconia used in the making of these bridges look incredibly natural and are very strong, which gives them their popularity and durability. Once you have had one fitted, you will have to learn a few new techniques on how to clean it, for bridges can be quite tricky at first, but once you’ve got the hang of it, you’ll be smiling once more.
