Dr. Pfister has over 35 years of dental experience. He can talk to you in depth about your new dental bridge and its many benefits, such as restoring bite balance and chewing function. Our office uses advanced CEREC® technology to create same-day dental bridges.
The Benefits of a Dental Bridge
There are important oral health benefits that can be enjoyed following the placement of your new dental bridge. Gaps between teeth promote shifting, which can cause cosmetic issues as well as poor tooth alignment. When teeth fall out of alignment (malocclusion) jaw or tooth pain can arise. A dental bridge can prevent these problems by ensuring that your teeth retain their natural position. A bridge can also significantly enhance the appearance of your smile. The absence of teeth can lead to sunken cheeks, which can sometimes make individuals appear older.
Our New Hartford dental practice offers advanced CEREC® technology, which allows Dr. Pfister to control how your final restoration will look.
Our New Hartford office offers advanced CEREC technology, which allows Dr. Pfister to control how your final restoration will look. The materials used to manufacture your teeth will match the color and luster of natural teeth, meaning few people will be able to tell that you have a prosthetic. Implant-retained bridges offer further oral health benefits. Dental implants are titanium posts placed in the jaw to replace tooth roots. The posts stimulate jawbone growth and help prevent jawbone atrophy.
