Bridging The Gap

cosmetic dental Staten Island

Do you have a missing tooth that is detracting from your otherwise beautiful teeth? Let Staten Island Dental Care fill the gap with a dental bridge, and help you get your remarkable smile back!

A bridge includes two or more crowns on either side of the gap created by your missing tooth. These two anchoring teeth permit a false tooth to be held in place where the missing tooth should be. The false tooth is called a pontic. Bridges can contain one or more pontics. A pontic can be matched to the surrounding teeth if you pick a porcelain material. If you’d like, a pontic can also be created using gold or an alloy.

We will work closely with you to make sure your bridge has a precise fit. Then one of our skilled hygienists will show you how to clean under and around the bridge to ensure that no decay develops in the nooks and crannies.

At Staten Island Dental Care we offer dental bridges and crowns, as well as dental implants and a full range of general and restorative dental services. Schedule your next checkup with us today.
