What do you do when you lose a tooth? In many cases, people delay the necessary dental care for replacing a missing tooth, which can increase the risk of further tooth loss. With a dental bridge, your Livingston dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, can replace one or more missing teeth with strong and esthetically pleasing crowns. In today’s blog, your Livingston cosmetic dentists discuss the benefits of our innovative dental bridges.



What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge consists of a custom-made replacement tooth with a crown attached to each side. The crowns will be placed on the teeth sitting on either side of the empty socket. The crowns anchor your new tooth into place, returning your smile to full function and appearance.

Protect Your Smile

The loss of a tooth threatens the stability of your entire smile. Over time, the adjacent teeth may begin to drift towards the empty socket. The resulting misalignment can eventually make chewing difficult and potentially lead to further tooth loss. A dental bridge prevents misalignment, allowing your surrounding teeth to remain in place.

Receiving Your New Dental Bridge

After a thorough oral examination, Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will prepare the tooth receiving the crowns and take impressions of your smile. Then, our on-site professional ceramists will begin creating your custom-made crowns and pontic, or artificial tooth. Once your restorations are complete, Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will check the fit to ensure comfort and accuracy. When you leave The Silverstrom Group, you smile will be beautiful and whole.
