Dental Practice in Wayne NJ offers dental bridge restorations

Posted By

Dr. Gary Edeer's Dental Practice near Wayne NJ
A missing tooth impacts more than just your appearance. It can also affect functionality such as biting and chewing, and can allow remaining teeth to shift out of place, making them more difficult to keep free of bacteria and plaque. At Aesthetic Smile Design, your comprehensive dental practice in Wayne, NJ, we offer several restorative options including crowns and bridges to replace missing teeth.

Why dental bridges?

Bridges are a popular choice for patients who are missing more than one tooth for their convenience and affordability. Bridges can be supported in one of two ways: by natural teeth or implants. Crowns are placed on the adjacent teeth, and a false tooth sits between the two crowns.

The dental bridge process

If we will be utilizing adjacent teeth for the bridge they will need to be prepared for placement of the crowns. This involves removing a thin layer of the enamel to allow space for the crown. Impressions are then taken and sent off to a lab for custom fabrication. A temporary restoration will be placed to protect your teeth in the interim.

Once the bridge is complete, you will return for placement. The bridge will be checked for fit and comfort and then cemented into place.

Caring for your dental bridge

Caring for a dental bridge is the same as caring for natural teeth. Brushing and flossing daily along with regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings will ensure your bridge lasts for a long time. You will be shown how to floss properly underneath the bridge.

At Aesthetic Smile Design, your oral health is our top priority. By addressing missing teeth, we can restore the look and functionality of your smile. If you are in the Wayne, NJ area call us today at 862-766-6363 to learn more about dental bridges.
