My son needed 2 impacted molars removed for his braces and Dr Arnold the surgeon had them out in about 15mins. Recovery was really just 2 days and now the 3rd day just some swelling. The office is efficient and doctor very knowledgeable and friendly. Couldn't be happier with their performance.

Dental Bridges: What They Are and How They Can Help You Smile Again

If you have a missing tooth, you may be familiar with the impact it can have on your confidence, self-esteem, and daily activities such as chewing and speaking. Fortunately, dental bridges can provide a long-lasting solution to restore your smile and improve your quality of life.

What are Dental Bridges?

A dental bridge is a prosthetic device that replaces one or more missing teeth. It consists of two or more dental crowns that serve as anchors, also known as abutment teeth, and a pontic or artificial tooth that fills the gap between them. Bridges can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, or metal alloys, and are customized to match the size, shape, and color of your existing teeth.

How are Dental Bridges Placed?

The process of getting a dental bridge usually requires two or more appointments with your dentist. During your first visit, your dentist will prepare the abutment teeth by removing a portion of their enamel and reshaping them to accommodate the dental crowns. Then, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth and send them to a dental lab where your bridge will be custom-made.

While your bridge is being fabricated, you will be provided with a temporary bridge to protect your teeth and gums. Once your permanent bridge is ready, you will return to your dentist’s office to have it placed and adjusted for optimal fit and function. With proper care and maintenance, dental bridges can last for many years and even decades.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

Dental bridges offer numerous benefits for patients with missing teeth, including:

  1. Improved appearance: Bridges can restore the natural look of your smile and enhance your facial features, resulting in a more youthful and attractive appearance.
  2. Restored function: Bridges can restore your ability to chew, speak, and bite properly, improving your overall oral health and nutrition.
  3. Better oral health: Bridges can prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of position and becoming crooked, which can lead to further dental problems such as gum disease and tooth decay.
  4. Increased confidence: Bridges can help you feel more confident and self-assured when smiling, speaking, and interacting with others.

If you are missing one or more teeth and are considering dental bridges, Westchester Smile Design is here to help.
