Dental Bridges: A Trusted Way to Replace Missing Teeth
Dr. James Stein provides dental bridges to fill the gap left by missing teeth and to restore a patient’s smile and bite. For decades, the standard prosthetic treatment to replace one or a few missing teeth was a dental bridge. With today's advanced technology, patients can now choose bridges attached to crowned original teeth, or implant-supported dental bridges, secured by one or more dental implants placed in the jaw.

When to Consider a Dental Bridge
If you have lost one tooth, or a few teeth in a row, a dental bridge may offer the best option for replacing your teeth. However, patients who are missing multiple teeth across the upper or lower arch, or who have only a few original teeth remaining, may be advised to explore partial or full dentures, rather than dental bridges.
During your consultation, Dr. Stein will examine your teeth and gums, and provide a recommendation between traditional and implant-supported bridges, and which technique would be most effective for your case. He will answer all of your questions and can provide before-and-after photos to help you visualize the potential results.
