Complete Your Smile and Restore Your Self-confidence with Porcelain Dental Bridges

Elevation Dental Studio offers dentures and implants as effective teeth replacements, but we have yet another solution: porcelain bridges. Dental bridges in Mount Vernon, New York, are a viable tooth loss solution for patients who cannot have oral surgery and don’t fancy dentures. A dental bridge spans a toothless gap between teeth for a beautiful, functional smile. 

What are dental bridges?

A dental bridge replaces one or multiple missing teeth using adjacent teeth for support. Many people confuse bridges with partials. Partial dentures are removable and attached to the nearby teeth with metal clasps. Dental bridges are secured to the adjoining teeth with dental crowns and remain “fixed” in the mouth. 

It’s important to replace missing teeth with bridges to speak normally, chew properly, and maintain esthetics. Dental bridges also help stabilize the nearby teeth by filling the gap where the adjacent teeth tend to shift.

While bridges can be created from several materials, we prefer porcelain bridges for several reasons. Besides their natural appearance, porcelain bridges are incredibly durable, providing a stable solution for your smile. 

The process of restoring your teeth with a dental bridge

Whether you’ve lost your teeth to injury, disease, or decay, we can create a fixed bridge to restore your solid smile. Placing a traditional bridge involves 2-3 visits. The first visit is a consultation to establish whether a bridge is the best treatment for your smile. 

Then, we’ll prepare the neighboring teeth (abutments) by removing some of the enamel to create room for dental crowns. Next, we’ll take impressions of the prepped teeth to develop a blueprint for fabricating your bridgework. Since your bridges aren’t created in a day, we’ll place a temporary restoration to protect your prepped teeth for the next 1-2 weeks.

Once your bridgework is ready, we’ll call you to our office for placement. After checking the fit of your restoration, we’ll use dental cement to secure your restoration to your teeth. It will take some days to get used to your restoration, but once you do, your restoration will seamlessly blend into your smile.
