CEREC® Same-Day Dental Bridges
in Forest Hills, NY
A bridge does just that: bridges a gap due to a missing tooth with a framework and artificial tooth. CEREC® (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CEramic REConstruction) Same-Day bridges allow our doctors to plan, produce, and place an individual bridge during your first (and only) visit, using a digital impression. CEREC® allows you to be in and out of our office in one appointment, with a new bridge and a restored smile.
Who is a good candidate for a dental bridge?
If you are missing a tooth and are unhappy with an unsightly gap that makes everyday activities, like chewing, eating, biting, difficult, you may be an excellent candidate for a dental bridge. Not only does a gap cause embarrassment and declining self-esteem, but it can also lead to misalignment of neighboring teeth and the development of cavities and gum disease.
