Do you have gaps or spaces left by missing teeth? Is your smile marred by missing teeth? Do you dream of restoring the beauty of your smile? Ask Dr. Jorge Bastidas about getting a dental bridge in Paterson, New Jersey! A dental bridge is used to close gaps between teeth caused by missing teeth. They are made of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and one or more replacement teeth in between. Dental bridges can be anchored by natural teeth or implants. Bridges can do the following:
- Restore your smile
- Restore the ability to chew and speak properly
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Properly distribute your bite
- Prevent natural teeth from drifting
Before placing a dental bridge, the anchoring teeth, or abutment teeth, are prepared. A small amount of enamel is removed to allow room for the crowns. Impressions of your teeth are made so the bridge can be constructed. When the bridge is ready, our dentist will place it in your mouth to check the fit. After any necessary adjustments are made, it is cemented into place.
