Dental Bridges in Webster New York
Did you know the average adult has at least three decayed or missing teeth? So, if you are missing a tooth, you are not alone! While it may be a common occurrence, losing a tooth or multiple teeth can cause significant issues. The gaps in your mouth from a missing tooth can cause complications you’re your bite and speech. Sometimes these gaps cause you to feel insecure about your smile. But that doesn’t have to be the case. At Empire Dental Care, we want you to have the full function of your mouth, but also feel confident when you laugh, smile, and speak to others. That’s why we offer dental bridges to replace missing teeth and restore your smile.
What are Dental Bridges?
A dental bridge is an artificial tooth that is used to repair the gap caused by a missing tooth. A bridge is made with two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap (where the tooth or teeth is missing). These crowns are called abutment teeth and work as an anchor for the bridge. An artificial tooth goes in between the abutment teeth to replace the missing tooth.
Most often, the artificial tooth is made from porcelain so that it matches your natural teeth. The replacement tooth is held in place by the teeth on either side of where you are missing a tooth— bridging the gap between the existing teeth.
There are a few different types of dental bridges to fit a variety of needs.
- Traditional Bridge
- Cantilever Bridge
- Maryland Dental Bridge
- Implant-Supported Dental Bridge
Depending on how many teeth you are missing and the locations of the missing teeth, Dr. Cohen will determine which type of dental bridge will work best for you.
Dental bridges are a comfortable, long-lasting solution to replace missing teeth. With proper at-home hygiene and regular check-ups, your dental bridge can last many years.
