What is a Dental Bridge?
If one or a few of your teeth have fallen out, it is more than just a cosmetic problem — gaps in the teeth may cause other teeth to shift. Over time, this can lead to extra tension in your bite, increased pain when chewing, or even difficulty speaking. A dental bridge improves the health and appearance of your mouth by filling in spaces with a false tooth supported by either crowns, dental implants, or a combination of both. At East Village Dental Center in New York, NY our skilled dental team offers custom-made bridges to help restore your beautiful smile. If you have missing teeth, schedule a consultation with one of our dental doctors to get more information about your restoration options with a custom bridge.
Should I Get a Dental Bridge?
People with missing teeth don't merely have an appearance problem — spaces in your teeth may heavily impact the health of your mouth. The fact is: your mouth is carefully balanced, and a gap may affect its function. In time, a missing tooth can lead to the shifting of teeth, causing problems with your bite (underbite, crossbite, overbite), gums, or jawbone. A dental bridge requires the surrounding teeth to be strong enough to support the restoration, including sufficient density in the jawbone and gums. We will examine your gums and jaw at your consultation to help you decide if a bridge is right for you. If it is, then we can help you decide the best bridge type (traditional, cantilever, resin bonded, or Maryland bonded) and material (porcelain, ceramic, porcelain fused to metal, or metal).
East Village Dental Center Reviews
Update [3/23/2023]: The office manager called me and assured me they will note my concerns and look to conduct better care of patients moving forward. I felt she was sincere and have since updated my review. I hope they continue to work on their patient care / Customer service as they are a vital health care facility in the community. Updated 1/30/2023 - Not sure what’s happened at East Village Dental however I think it’s a change in the management team that handles customer service. While they have updated the way they conduct business when you call they rarely pick up the phone, they do not return calls, they don’t have an emergency line for concerns post surgery. After an uncovering I developed canker sores and called them for a follow up they told me they’d call me back and instead I went the entire weekend in pain (see attached photo at your discretion). I did use warm water and salt to soothe the area but maybe they could have prescribed something to alleviate the pain which led to several days of headaches. There was little concern about my pain/discomfort which I’m very surprised from a place that I really liked and highly recommended just 1-2 years ago. After my crowns are in place I’m not sure I’ll go to them for a cleaning letting alone any serious oral surgery. Until they get a team that’s actually concerned about the customer/Patient stay away from EVD.
Excellent communication and kind staff. I have been coming here for ten years and I’m always kindly greeted, and well informed on the treatment expected. Highly recommended if you haven’t found that dental clinic that leaves you feeling like that’s the one. They are very professional and very efficient, as well as very accommodating. Cheerio
A wonderful practice! Both in their care and bedside manner, East Village Dental Center delivers ideal experiences. They’ve been serving my family and the community at large for many years. The receptionists are so nice and welcoming. The hygienist hooked me up with a painless cleaning and the doc was lovely. One can witness how imperative the reception desk being bilingual is here and how courtesy, a smile, cleanliness and quality care are so important to the diverse demographic that surrounds this gem. It’s walking distance for me, but I’d travel here if it wasn’t! Bravo!
Let me start by saying this dental office is for the community 100%, they are transparent about pricing from the moment you talk to them unlike many dentists in the area which I appreciated! Vanessa and Christine are funny , sweet, honest and understanding ! They took my concerns and budget seriously. Never met receptionists that are compassionate until these two! They squeezed me last minute ( literally) in and the dentist whose name was Amish was so informative and explained my crown procedure. Thank you all!! See you soon !! My two sisters get services here now I see why! 💚💚💚

How is a Dental Bridge Placed?
Once your teeth are prepped and filed down, we will take digital x-rays and impressions of your teeth so your custom bridge can be created. If needed, a temporary bridge may be used while your custom one is crafted. Once your restoration is ready, the needed areas of your mouth will be prepped with a numbing agent and your dental bridge will either be cemented in place or attached to dental implants, depending on the method you chose during your consult. We will adjust the position of the bridge so it feels right in your mouth and remains in place.
What Can I Expect Following My Dental Bridge Placement?
Once your bridge is in place, you should notice an improvement in the appearance and function of your teeth. You may need a follow-up appointment at our New York City office to adjust your dental bridge's fit if it seems loose or uncomfortable after it is placed. Someone from our dental team will show you how to care for your bridge, including the best way to clean it and if you need to avoid any foods. It is crucial to keep your bridge and mouth clean since decay can develop underneath the restoration. If you properly care for it, your custom bridge may stay in place for several years. You need to continue to attend annual dental exams and cleanings twice a year. At these appointments, we can check the health and wear of your dental bridge to decide if it should be repaired or replaced.
