Secure Your Smile with Dental Bridges in Voorhees Township NJ
Bridges are used to replace missing teeth with artificial teeth. Our dental bridges in Voorhees Township restore your smile, restore your ability to properly chew and speak, maintain the shape of your face, distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth and prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
There are three main types of dental bridges namely traditional bridges (creating a crown for the tooth or implant on either side of the missing tooth with a replacement tooth (Pontic) in between), cantilever bridges (when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth) and Maryland bonded bridges (made of plastic teeth and gums supported by a metal framework).
Getting a dental bridge involves two visits to the dentist. The first visit involves recontouring the teeth, taking impressions for making the bridge and placement of a temporary bridge to protect the exposed teeth and gums. During the second visit, the temporary bridge is removed and a new permanent bridge is cemented into place after checking if it is a proper fit.
Bridges can be made of gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination. They can last for five to 15 years and even longer with good oral hygiene and regular checkups.
