Dental Bridges Q & A

What are dental bridges?

Dental bridges are artificial teeth that take the place of one or more missing permanent teeth. Dr. Bronstein and his staff offer fixed bridges attached to crowns and implant-supported bridges to eliminate gaps left by missing teeth.

What are the benefits of dental bridges?

Some of the many benefits linked with dental bridges at Dr. Bronstein’s office include:

  • An aesthetically pleasing smile
  • More self-confidence
  • No more gaps in your smile
  • Clearer speech
  • Easier chewing
  • Less adjacent teeth shifting

Dental bridges are sturdy and long-lasting. They look and feel like your natural teeth and can drastically improve the appearance of your smile.

Are dental bridges right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for dental bridges, Dr. Bronstein and his team review your dental history, examine your teeth and gums, and take dental X-rays. He discusses your desired outcome and personalizes your cosmetic dental treatment to give you the best results.

What happens during dental bridge placement?

Dr. Bronstein can digitally scan your mouth or take molds to develop custom-fitted, traditional dental bridges that fit over your existing adjacent teeth. These bridges usually consist of two crowns attached to an artificial tooth in between.

To receive implant-supported bridges, Dr. Bronstein can surgically place titanium posts into your jaw. When the implants heal, he digitally scans your teeth to develop a bridge that attaches to the implants. Implant-supported bridges work well if you have more than one missing tooth.

How should I care for dental bridges?

To properly care for your new dental bridge, brush your teeth at least twice daily and make sure to floss every day. Don’t chew on ice, popcorn kernels, hard candy, or other hard objects. If you grind your teeth at night or play contact sports, wear a mouthguard.

Call Dr. Bronstein’s office if your bridge gets damaged, and see him every six months for routine dental cleanings and exams.

Don’t live with missing permanent teeth when a dental bridge can give you the full set of gorgeous teeth you deserve. Call the office of Dr. Arden Bronstein DDS to make an appointment or request one online today.
