Bridge procedures permanently replace missing and worn tooth structure. Dr. Cohen and Dr. DeCesare utilize very strong, esthetic dental materials to restore teeth to their natural function and beauty. This technology has evolved so that in certain cases, all-ceramic (porcelain) materials are used. Sometimes crowns or bridges are constructed in conjunction with other cosmetic services, such as porcelain laminates, to create an entire new look.
Before and After
A bridge is an artificial tooth used to replace one that is missing. It is attached to your neighboring teeth. One of the benefits of using a bridge to replace a missing tooth (or teeth) is how natural it looks and feels. With proper care, bridges can last a lifetime.
If you are missing a tooth, but have sound, healthy teeth on either side of the space, a bridge may be a good option for you.
If you have any questions about bridges, please feel free to speak with Dr. Cohen, Dr. DeCesare or one of our Lakeside Family Dental team members today.
