Dental bridges are used to fill a gap caused by missing teeth. A dental bridge is made up of two or more crowns placed on each side of the gap, with false teeth in between the anchor teeth. Dental bridges can be supported with dental implants or with natural teeth in the mouth.
Our expert dental team at LuxDen Dental Center in Brooklyn, NY can closely examine your teeth and gums to determine if you are a viable candidate for dental bridges.
Types of Dental Bridges
Dental bridges are used to restore the function of teeth, enhance a smile, fix a bite, prevent other teeth from moving (where there are missing teeth in between crowns), and/or to maintain the shape of one’s face, to name a few reasons.
A traditional bridge is the most common type and is made of porcelain that is fused to ceramic or even metal. A resin-bonded bridge uses wings on each side of the bridge that are bonded to the existing teeth directly.
How Dental Bridges Work in Brooklyn
When you visit our Brooklyn dental office, the abutment teeth are prepared by our general dentist by recontouring them and removing a bit of enamel. This is so that a crown can be successfully placed. Impressions are made and then used by a dental lab to create this bridge for you. While this permanent bridge is being made, a temporary one is worn to protect the teeth.
