Dental Bridges in Manhattan

Tooth loss can be an embarrassing and disruptive issue, leading to a decrease in self-esteem and confidence. But thanks to the advances of modern dental technology, you don’t have to live with an unsightly gap in your smile. Bespoke dental bridges serve as effective cosmetic and restorative solutions to tooth loss, and Group Health Dental transforms smiles with this affordable tooth replacement option.

Dental Bridges Defined

Dental bridges are a standard tooth replacement solution for those who have lost one or more teeth. Simply put, dental bridges are appliances designed to anchor one or more fabricated teeth to the gap in your mouth left by missing teeth. Bridges work by affixing a false tooth to neighboring healthy teeth or implants, filling the space and restoring the appearance of your smile. Most dental bridges are made of porcelain, metal, or ceramic and come in all shapes, sizes, and types, depending on your unique needs. Whether you’re looking to improve your appearance or regain the normal function of your teeth, dental bridges can be a fantastic option to consider!

Dental Bridges Offer a Wealth of Restorative and Aesthetic Benefits

Tooth bridges are custom-made prosthetics designed to fill gaps left by missing teeth, restoring a patient’s ability to chew, speak, and smile confidently. By anchoring onto existing teeth or dental implants, bridges provide a secure and stable foundation that prevents surrounding teeth from shifting and becoming misaligned. Additionally, bridges can improve a patient’s facial structure and maintain the shape of the jawbone, which can often deteriorate over time without the support of natural teeth.

With advancements in modern dental technology, bridges can be crafted to match the color, size, and shape of a patient’s remaining teeth, resulting in a seamlessly natural appearance that can enhance a patient’s self-esteem and quality of life.

Dive Into the Dental Bridge Placement Process

The tooth bridge placement process starts with a consultation with one of our NYC dentists, who will examine your mouth and determine if a dental bridge is right for you. After that, your teeth must be prepared by removing a small amount of enamel to make enough space for the new dental bridge. Next, digital images and impressions are taken to create a custom bridge that will fit perfectly in your mouth. While your permanent one is being made, your dentist will place a temporary bridge to ensure your smile stays stabilized, complete, and protected. Once your permanent bridge is ready, it is cemented in place. Finally, your dentist will make any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable and practical fit. With proper care and maintenance, dental bridges can last many years and provide a fuller, natural-looking smile.
