Dental Bridges – Jersey City, NJ

Filling the Gaps in Your Grin

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap from one tooth to the next. In other words, if you have a missing tooth, a bridge fills the space where it used to be. Most dental bridges from our Jersey City, NJ dentist are made using a pontic, or artificial tooth that is designed to blend in with the rest of your smile.

Why Do You Need a Dental Bridge?

Your teeth work together like a team. If one member is missing, the rest of the team isn’t going to be able to do the job that they were born to do.

In other words, your other teeth will move into the empty space. Furthermore, the teeth on the opposite side will most probably move down, up, or toward the space as well.

Missing teeth also cause:

  • Stress on the jaw
  • Pain and stress for other teeth
  • Self-consciousness
  • Speech impediments

Types of Dental Bridges

Cantilever Bridge - Your dentist in Jersey City uses this type of dental bridge for patients who have only one tooth on one side of the gap. Cantilevers are made from metal and ceramic or metal.

Traditional Fixed Bridge - Traditional dental bridges have two or more dental crowns along with a filler tooth. The dental crowns keep your bridge stable. This type of bridge is made from ceramic, porcelain fused to metal, or metal.

Maryland Dental Bridge - Maryland dental bridges are normally used for missing front teeth. Made out of metal, ceramic, or porcelain fused to metal, they are supported by a winged framework on both sides of the pontic.

Implant Dental Bridge - Implant bridges are held in place by a dental implant surgically placed in the jawbone. In other words, your bridge is supported by permanent dental posts or screws.
