Is there a noticeable gap in your teeth when you smile or laugh? Do missing teeth affect your speech pattern?
A dental bridge might be the answer. "Buscemi Family Dentistry" specializes in dental bridging.
A dental bridge is an excellent way to replace missing teeth. As a fixed appliance, bridges are cosmetic dental restorations that fill in the void caused by a missing tooth or teeth. They provide a more stable surface for chewing and prevent your remaining teeth from shifting or moving.
Dental bridges can last several years as they are are exceptionally durable. However, over time, they might need to be replaced or possibly re-cemented due to ordinary use.
Advantages of a fixed dental bridge:
Fill spaces caused by missing teeth
Maintain facial shape
Stop drifting of other teeth out of position
Improve chewing and speaking ability
When teeth are missing in the front area of the mouth, it can be difficult to speak clearly. A dental bridge will put the front teeth in proper position to help you speak more clearly as well as improve your smile.
Replacing those missing teeth should make eating a bit easier as well. You may need to eat soft foods or smaller bites at first before you become accustomed to the bridge.
A dental bridge procedure will more than likely require 2 or more visits. On the first visit, the teeth roots are numbed and then the anchoring teeth are prepared to be crowned by removing some of enamel. Next, an extremely precise dental impression is created which will be delivered to the lab for the bridge will be designed and constructed. You will get a temporary bridge while the permanent bridge is being created.
On the next visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully assessed and modified to ensure a proper fit. Then it will be cemented in place.
There are four main types of bridges:
Resin-bonded or Maryland bridges
The cost of a dental bridge depends on the type of bridge needed to correct the dental problem. Bridges can last 5 to 7 years or more. With good dental hygiene and regular professional cleaning, it's not uncommon for the lifetime of a bridge to be more than a decade.

A cantilever dental bridge is typically used to restore front teeth and uses a dental crown placed over an unhealthy tooth to anchor the bridge.
Maryland bridges, also called adhesive bridges, are less invasive than traditional dental bridges as they use metal framework attached to the surrounding healthy teeth to hold the bridge in place.
An implant-supported bridge is a bridge that is attached to one or more metal posts that are surgically implanted into your jawbone.
Dental bridges are made from metal, ceramics or a combination of the two depending on the materials that are best for you and your mouth.
