What are dental bridges?
A bridge is a non-removable dental restoration that can be used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple teeth in a row. Most often, the dental bridge is fixed in place by attaching two dental crowns to the neighboring natural teeth. The pontic tooth, or artificial tooth, is attached to the two crowns that hold it in place. The dental bridges that Dr. James Feldman and Dr. Steven Feldman create are carefully constructed to match your existing teeth, restore chewing function and give you a beautiful smile. For your convenience, dental bridges can be completed in as little as two or three visits to our office.
