Even a single missing or dislodged tooth can ruin your smile and leave you feeling self-conscious. Permanent tooth loss can result in many problems for adults in terms of appearance, chewing functionality, and even overall health.
Our skilled dentists near you provide a range of restorations such as dental bridges, crowns, inlays, onlays, and implants.
So Good Dental patients enjoy a wide range of choices when it comes to bridges in Fort Lee, NJ. Gaps may occur in the front or back of the dental arch and cause problems with chewing, speaking, and smiling. Dental bridges consist of an acrylic base with two crowns and an artificial tooth (or teeth) to replace the missing one.
You can choose from standard as well as implant-supported dental bridges near you. In general, implant-supported restorations are stronger, more durable, and guarantee better stability and performance than conventional bridges that rest on the gums. Once you schedule an initial consultation with one of our trained dentists, we will determine the most suitable dental bridge for your needs.
Our advanced scanning technology provides clear views of the tooth to be replaced, and our family dentists work closely with patients to create a personalized treatment plan. The procedure begins with numbing the site and then trimming and reshaping the abutment teeth (the teeth on the sides of the space) to receive the crown. The patient then bites down on special dental foam so that we can take precise molds that we send to the dental lab that will prepare the bridge.
We place a temporary bridge to reduce sensitivity, protect the ground down teeth from damage, and help you chew and speak normally.
The permanent dental bridges take about two weeks to get ready. Once you come in for your second dental bridge appointment at So Good Dental, we will replace the temporary bridge with the permanent one. If you have had implants, our dentists in Fort Lee, NJ will attach the bridge to the abutment teeth.
We will check the bridge for fit and comfort and make adjustments as needed.
