While a dental bridge might sound like the answer to your prayers for an attractive smile, you might be unclear on exactly what dental bridges are and how dental bridges can help you. A dental bridge is a dental appliance that is made of a porcelain replacement tooth and two porcelain crowns. The replacement tooth is kept in place by the porcelain crowns which are placed over the teeth adjoining the place where the replacement tooth is needed. Once the crowns are in place, the porcelain replacement tooth is put in the empty spot of the missing tooth and attached to the porcelain crowns forming a ‘bridge’. The result is a dental restoration, which is not permanent, like dental implants but still provides a sturdy restoration and a pleasing result for our patients. Dr. Yuri Krainov and our staff take pride in providing the strongest and most attractive dental bridges which are also the most comfortable to patients in Kensington, Fort Hamilton, Bay Ridge, Borough Park, Bensonhurst, Bath Beach, Flatbush, Brighton Beach and surrounding areas.
Dr. Yuri Krainov and our staff specialize in providing dental bridges and other dental appliances customized for you at prices you can afford. A dental bridge can be created and installed in as little as two visits, a decided bonus as crowded as all of our schedules can be. The first visit begins the procedure by filing down the adjacent teeth surrounding the space where the replacement tooth is needed. This will create the space needed for the dental restoration. A mold of the adjacent teeth is taken for the creation of the porcelain crowns that will support the bridge. The dental bridge is created by our staff and a dental lab working together to create the custom dental restoration appliance for you.
Dr. Yuri Krainov will put the dental crowns in place during your second visit, and then bond the replacement tooth to the crowns to install the bridge. The doctor will check for optimal fit and make any adjustments necessary to insure your comfort. In as little as two visits, you can walk out of the office with a beautiful, functional new smile.
