Rebuild Your Smile with Customized Dental Bridges
Does the gap in your smile make you feel self-conscious about talking and laughing in public? Are you missing multiple teeth in a row? Our team of dentists at Browne Goetz & Miraglia PC provide custom-made dental bridges at our Mount Kisco, NY, practice as an ideal solution for restoring function and beauty to your smile. Patients can take advantage of either traditional or implant-supported bridgework to fill the gaps so that they can eat and speak comfortably once more.
Receiving Your Custom-Crafted Bridge
When you come into our office for your first consultation, one of our dentists will conduct a thorough examination and review your medical history to ensure that a bridge is the best option for your oral health needs. We can then take diagnostic photos and digital x-rays in order to accurately create a customized treatment plan.
The process of receiving a traditional dental bridge typically requires two office visits. During the first appointment, your dentist will prepare the teeth adjacent to the gap for dental crowns. These crowns will act as anchors for the artificial tooth that will bridge the gap. Once this preparation is finished, detailed impressions of your teeth and gums will be sent to a trusted off-site lab to custom-create your dental bridge. Your dentist will then fit you with a temporary bridge to protect the site until your next appointment.
Both traditional and implant-supported dental bridges can restore lost functionality to your smile.
The materials used for making your dental bridge are durable and lifelike, allowing the technician who fabricates it to match your natural teeth as closely as possible. After your prosthetic is ready, you can return to the office for the second appointment, typically two weeks later. Your dentist will attach the bridge securely, check that the fit is comfortable, and ensure your bite is correctly aligned before securing it in place. When you walk out of our office, you will go home with a fully restored smile.
If you are looking for durable bridges that receive superior support, implant-supported options offer unmatched benefits. At Browne Goetz & Miraglia PC, our team of experienced dentists can place and restore dental implants using the latest dental technology. Because dental implants act as artificial tooth roots for bridges, the security and stability they offer are unparalleled. Furthermore, implants stimulate jawbone tissues, preventing the bone recession that commonly follows tooth loss and consequently preserving jawbone structure. For implants to have a lasting impact, though, patients must be committed to regular home care and biannual dentist checks.
