Dental Bridges in Brooklyn, New York

Dental Bridges in Brooklyn, New York

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 center for dental bridges in Brooklyn, NY can closely examine your teeth and gums to determine if you are a viable candidate for dental bridges.

What Is a Dental Bridge?
A bridge is a fixed device that can only be removed by a dentist. It consists of two crowns fitted over abutment teeth, the teeth, usually on either side of the gap, and these crowns are attached to the replacement or false teeth. Each replacement tooth is called a pontic, shaped like a natural tooth, resting directly on the gum underneath.

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 Much Does a Dental Bridge Cost?
The costs can vary tremendously depending on the number of teeth that must be replaced and the type of bridge and materials used to fabricate it. The most expensive type of bridge is all-ceramic, but it is extremely strong, and if you have good dental insurance, it may cover most or all of the costs. If you have dental implants, you might find some of the costs are also covered by dental insurance, so it’s worth checking with your insurer before you see an implant dentist. Even if the costs aren’t covered by insurance, dental implant treatment can be an excellent way to go. Success rates are very high, typically 95% or more, and treatment is long-lasting, so it’s well worth the extra effort and initial expense required.
