Dental Bridges: An Easy Solution to Missing Teeth
Missing teeth can cause concern and embarrassment. They can affect your speech, how you eat, and may even lower your self-confidence. But it’s far from permanent. Restore your smile, confidence, and oral health with dental bridges.
What Is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a restoration technique that uses healthy teeth surrounding a missing tooth to anchor in one or more false teeth. The result is the creation of a “bridge” between them.
The anchor teeth each receive crowns to stabilize them and connect them securely to the bridge. The result is that your bridge teeth will look like porcelain crowns, matching the surrounding teeth.
The materials and procedures used for dental bridges vary from patient to patient. Your dentist will determine you have the right dental bridge to fully restore the beauty of your smile.
What to Expect From Dental Bridges in Manhattan
A dental bridge procedure generally takes two visits to complete. On your first visit, we’ll prep your supporting teeth and make a mold of your bite using a soft impression material. And you’ll leave our office with temporary teeth. On your second visit, we fit the fixed prosthesis and bond your dental bridge into place.
We also match each bridge to resemble your smile’s natural appearance (in both shape and color). This way, people won’t realize you were missing teeth in the first place.
