Dental Bridges

What is a dental bridge? Dental bridges are a fixed restoration that replaces your missing teeth. This multi-tooth restoration looks like individual teeth, when in fact it is several teeth fused side by side. Your healthy teeth support each end of the bridge on opposite sides of your missing tooth.

Concerned About Your Missing Teeth?

We want your smile to be an attractive, confident one, but gaps in your teeth can detract from your appearance. Not only is the look of your teeth affected, but also the function. When there are gaps in your smile, your other natural teeth can drift, causing complications such as…

  • Tooth decay
  • Periodontal disease
  • Broken restorations, such as crowns and fillings
  • Abnormally worn and chipped teeth

Bridges Replace Your Missing Teeth

dental bridgeCenter for Cosmetic Dentistry creates each bridge to resemble the appearance of your real teeth. The treatment process usually takes two different appointments, similar to having a crown made. Our cosmetic dental bridges are made of durable porcelain to protect your bite’s function and improve the appearance of your smile.

Implant Supported Dental Bridges

Depending on the health of your mouth and your personal preference, you can alternatively have your bridge securely placed onto dental implants. An implant is simply an artificial tooth root, typically made out of metal, that we surgically position in the jawbone.

Dr. Mitchell Shapiro also provides permanent implant supported bridges to our patients. Dr. Shapiro is one of the few dentists in the Smithtown area to provide people like you with complete implant therapy and restorations right in his own office. His extensive experience with implants and cosmetic bridges makes this an excellent option if you need to replace 3 or 4 teeth.
