Dental Bridges Pennington NJ

Pennington dentist Donna Vagnozzi-Bucci, DMD, PC offers dental bridges as a replacement option for missing teeth. There are several types of dental bridges and your dentist will help you make the best decision for your long term goals and dental health.

What is a Dental Bridge?
Basically, a dental bridge is a series of dental crowns, used to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges can either be removable or fixed and made from a variety of tooth-like materials.

Types of Dental Bridges

Removable Dental Bridge
A removable dental bridge is best used as a short term solution to maintain tooth position while a patient is preparing to have a fixed dental bridge or dental implant placed. While the cost of a removable dental bridge is appealing, they do not offer good long term benefits and frequently require replacement or repair.

Fixed Dental Bridge
A fixed dental bridge is permanently placed in the mouth, generally connected to two dental crowns which cover the teeth on either side of the missing tooth. Another option is to have a fixed dental bridge secured by dental implants instead of dental crowns. Dental implants may offer a better long term solution and do not require preparation of neighboring teeth.

Dental Bridge vs. Implant

Our dentists will consider many things when helping you decide if a dental bridge or dental implant is right for you. While a dental implant is the most life like replacement for a missing tooth, not everyone is a candidate. It is important that you have adequate bone structure to support the dental implant. Depending on the location of the missing tooth or teeth, a dental implant may not be a good choice.

Dental Bridge Repair

If you currently have a dental bridge that needs repair, contact our office to schedule an appointment. Depending on the circumstances, we may perform the dental bridge repair or offer a dental bridge replacement.

  • You have been such a great support in the care for our mother over these years. I wanted to keep her pain free and you helped us with that. The last miraculous feat was the saving of that front tooth that broke. It made me smile because she hated that her teeth were discolored. She would have LOVED that shiny white tooth!! Thank you for that and, for contributing to alzheimer's research in her name.

  • I didn’t go to the dentist for a while because I had bad experiences. Then a friend referred me to the Spa Dentistry office. I usually see Dr. Silk. I have a lot of confidence in him and am very comfortable with everyone in the office now. The office is beautiful and comfortable. Everyone is friendly and professional and always makes you feel comfortable. I had two bridges done that have worked out great! I highly recommend the dental group to anyone because they are very personable and always make me feel comfortable.

  • I have been a patient of Dr. Vagnozzi Bucci Spa Dental Practice since April 2002 and I’m extremely happy. I have dental insurance that I cannot use at the office however, I still choose to go there. The whole staff is superior in their technical abilities, attitude and professionalism. Every procedure I have had done there has exceeded my expectations. Painless dentistry at its finest. I can not use enough adjectives to describe and praise these doctors and professional staff. It’s not the dentistry you remember from your childhood; this is the dental practice of the future.

    Gayle D.

  • I just wanted to thank all of you for taking such good care of my aunt while she and my uncle were in the states from Australia. They were thrilled with her new teeth and told us you were amazing! I know medical/dental care is no where near as good in the U.K. or Australia as it is here, so I am glad if she had to have treatment, it was done by you. Thanks you again; I owe you one, but hope you don’t need any physical therapy anytime soon...

  • I want to thank you for going out of your way countless times to correct and fix my two permanent crowns. It is rare to meet a person of your character. I am lucky to have you and your magnificent staff care for me.
