If you are missing one or more teeth, Dr. Anthony Foster, our knowledgeable dentist, may suggest a dental bridge. Dental bridges are a type of permanent dental restoration designed to literally bridge the gap between remaining natural teeth left by a missing tooth. There are three main types of dental bridges available, based on which teeth have been lost. At Foster Dental, we offer:
- Traditional dental bridges, made of a false tooth anchored by two dental crowns
- Cantilever bridges, which are similar to traditional bridges, but used when there are no teeth on one side of the gap left by a lost tooth
- Resin-bonded bridges, ideal for missing front teeth, which use brackets and bonding cement to hold the false teeth in place
It generally only takes two visits to design, create, and place a dental bridge. We understand the impact of losing a tooth, and we work eagerly to restore your smile as soon as we can. Dental bridges in Brooklyn, New York, offer many benefits. Not only do they replace teeth and improve your confidence, but dental bridges also restore your ability to eat and chew properly and prevent natural teeth from shifting out of place. To learn more about these benefits and schedule your consultation, we welcome you to call or visit our dental office today. We are eager to take care of your smile!
