Crowns, bridges, dentures and implants are yet another way that Dr. Berson and Dr. Yaffe can help rejuvenate your smile when you suffer from missing teeth.
A bridge is used to replace missing teeth and provides an alternative means to more expensive dental implants or even dentures. Some bridges are removable, but most are permanent or "fixed." To install them, our dentists first cut down the adjacent teeth and fit them with crowns. Temporary crowns and spacers will be used until the custom crowns and bridge can be installed. The space between the crowns is then filled and attached to the crowns for support. These crowns can be used to replace one tooth or nearly all the teeth in your mouth, thus having both functional and aesthetic importance. Correctly installed fixed bridges are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. These appliances can be very expensive, but dental insurance will often cover a large part of the cost.
