Grand Dental Arts has several teeth replacement options to rebuild your smile when you have tooth loss. While several options exist, some may cost more than your budget, and others require oral surgery. Fixed dental bridges in Tom River, New Jersey, present a cost-friendly, surgery-free choice to replace missing teeth. Expertly placed by Drs. Colleen Williamson and Marya Ijaz, our porcelain bridges are color-matched with your natural teeth for a natural-looking outcome.
How dental bridges replace missing teeth
If you have lost one or more teeth — and are ineligible for dental implants and don’t fancy a denture — a bridge is a worthwhile alternative. This restoration comprises one or more prosthetic teeth attached to the nearby teeth or implants using dental crowns or clasps. Dental bridges close the edentulous gap to restore your aesthetics and oral function.
Our dental bridges aren’t made from any material. They are made from one of the most revered materials in dentistry: porcelain. This ceramic material is loved for its aesthetics because it can be tinted to match the shade of the existing teeth for a natural-looking appearance. This way, dental bridges can be used for front teeth, where aesthetics matter the most. Still, porcelain bridges are resilient enough to replace posterior teeth that constantly endure everyday grinding and chewing forces.
Benefits of porcelain dental bridges
Placing dental bridges isn’t as invasive as dental implants. The treatment involves two to three appointments, with much time spent on the first visit to prepare your teeth. After placing a dental bridge, it may take a few days to get used to the restoration, but once you do, you’ll barely notice its presence.
