Dental Bridges An Overview
Replacing missing teeth is important for restoring both long term dental health and the aesthetics of your smile. There are several choices for today’s patients, all of which can offer natural looking results that will bring back – and often improve- full function for the enjoyment of a normal diet and speech.
At Bella Smiles in Riverhead and Roslyn, NY, Dr. Sal Lotardo offers you the best that modern dentistry has to offer when it comes to tooth replacement, including dental bridges. A dental bridge can be used to replace one or several consecutive missing teeth. Your dental bridge can be permanently secured for a comfortable and confident smile.
Dental bridges are secured by either existing teeth on either side or dental implants. When existing teeth are used, a dental crown is typically placed to add strength and ensure a lasting restoration.
Dental Bridges What to Expect
The dental bridge procedure will begin with a consultation to assess your dental health and plan your treatment. Depending on the health of your existing teeth, the decision will be made to place dental crowns or use dental implants to secure the bridge. The goal of treatment is a dental bridge that will last for many years, providing natural function and supporting your long term oral health.
Dr. Lotardo will explain all aspects of your dental bridge procedure and ensure that when you visit with us you feel comfortable during your treatment. If dental implants are being placed to secure the bridge, all phases of treatment can be performed in the comfort of our Riverhead dentist office. This makes treatment both more convenient and consistent for a predictable result.
