Here at the office of Dr. Baruch B. Lifshitz, the number one Montebello dentist, some of the most important dental devices that we use are dental bridges. If you are missing a tooth or several teeth, our dentist may recommend a dental bridge as the treatment of choice for you. A dental bridge literally bridges the gap created by missing teeth by putting in customized, false replacement teeth. Bridges are completely personalized so that the bridge will fit in perfectly with the rest of your smile. They are designed to look, feel, and function just like natural teeth.Dental bridges can be made from a variety of materials, including gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of materials. Once the bridge has been customized and created, our Montebello dentist will attach the bridge by bonding it onto the teeth that surround it for proper support. There are two main types of bridges. The first type is a fixed bridge. Fixed bridges are cemented and stay in your mouth at all times. Fixed bridges are supported by your natural teeth on either side. The second type of bridge is a removable bridge. Removable bridges are to be taken out several times a day for cleaning, and they rest on the gums where your missing teeth once were. Our Montebello dentist can let you know if a bridge is the proper treatment option for you, as well as which type of bridge is the best option for you, after a consultation and examination here at our office. Bridges are only some of the restorative and cosmetic options we have available for our patients here at Dr. Lifshitz’s office.
