Spotlight on Fixed Dental Bridges

If you have missing teeth, one restoration option your dentist may suggest is a fixed dental bridge. Fixed dental bridges consist of the necessary number of artificial, porcelain teeth that are anchored by two porcelain crowns at each end. The bridge closes the gap where you have missing teeth so that your smile is restored to its natural appearance.

When you get a fixed dental bridge, your dentist will place the bridge in the space that is left by your missing tooth or teeth. Crowns will be placed on the two natural teeth at either end of the bridge to secure it in place firmly. Once your bridge is fixed, you can treat it like your natural teeth and eat, brush, and floss as normal. Your fixed bridge will last for 15 to 20 years with the right care.

Could a fixed dental bridge be the right solution for your smile makeover? Schedule a consultation with Dr. Michael J. Wei in Manhattan to explore all of your smile restoration options. Call (212) 982-4080 to make an appointment.
