Are your teeth badly damaged or missing altogether? If so, they may be affecting your quality of life more than you know. After all, beautiful, functional teeth don't just allow you to eat your favorite foods, they also improve your appearance, help you speak, and improve your self-Bridges esteem and self-confidence. This is why, if you don't have a beautiful smile already, you need to make visiting a Chico, CA dentist such as Ashley Harrison, DDS a priority.

Crowns and Bridges Improve Your Tooth Function

The most important job your teeth have is to help you eat. Without a mouth full of strong, healthy teeth, you simply won't be able to eat all of your favorite foods like you could. You will have to give up some of the hard or crunchy foods you used to enjoy due to the pain or due to the fact that you don't have the teeth you need to chew them with.

Another important job your teeth have is to allow you speak. This means that if you are missing some of your teeth, particularly your front ones, your speech may be affected. People will likely still be able to understand you, but eventually you'll find yourself talking less and less out of embarrassment.

Crowns and Bridges Improve Your Appearance

Plus, did you realize that even when your mouth is closed, the condition of your teeth still affects your appearance?
