Are you missing multiple teeth? Restore your smile with a dental bridge. It is important to replace missing permanent teeth to prevent multiple oral health problems. Patients who do not replace their missing teeth may find that their remaining teeth shift to fill in the gap left by missing teeth. Overcrowded and crooked teeth create an uneven bite. Missing teeth also heightens the risk of developing tooth decay or gum disease.
Dental restorations like a dental bridge protect the health of the teeth and gums. Request a consultation with Dr. Jeffrey Bellisario for dental bridge treatment in Ardmore, PA. He helps patients find the right restorative dental treatment to meet their needs and prevent future oral health problems.
The Benefits of Dental Bridges
A dental bridge “bridges the gap” between your missing teeth and remaining natural teeth. Dental bridges are covered by dental crowns, which look and feel natural. This is because they are custom-made to match the natural teeth and are made of porcelain ceramic material that reflects light.
Unlike removable dentures, dental bridges do not need to be removed. With a dental bridge, patients can eat and speak comfortably and confidently. Because we customize dental bridges, they easily fit in with the appearance and function of your existing smile.
Types of Dental Bridges
Dr. Bellisario offers both traditional and implant-supported dental bridges. A traditional dental bridge is made of false teeth secured by adjacent natural teeth. The natural teeth are also covered by dental crowns and hold the prosthetic in place. This type of dental bridge provides a quick treatment. However, it will require repair over time.
An implant-supported bridge uses multiple dental implants to anchor a dental bridge. If you require a dental implant-supported bridge, we will refer you to an oral surgeon. After the dental implants heal, Dr. Bellisario will place your custom-made dental bridge. In addition, Dr. Bellisario takes dental scans and impressions to create comfortable, long-lasting dental bridges.
