Damaged, decayed, or missing teeth can make it difficult to live a confident and functional life. When a tooth breaks or has extensive functional issues, we recommend repairing it with a dental crown. Similarly, if you lose a tooth or need one extracted, a dental bridge can fill in this gap while also restoring dental function. Each of these restorations requires that your cosmetic dentist understand the relationship between your teeth and smile’s symmetry as well as the aesthetics of your gum line. The goal of our treatment is to provide aesthetic, reliable restorations that resemble healthy natural teeth as closely as possible.
With extensive training and over 40 years of combined experience in restorative dentistry, our team knows what it takes to provide quality and long-lasting dental crowns and bridges. Additionally, through our longstanding partnership with high-quality dental labs, we can efficiently provide custom porcelain restorations designed with great precision and skill, for each tooth that needs repair or replacement. We’ll help you achieve your smile goals with dental bridges and/or dental crowns in Cliffside Park, NJ, and help you feel confident and attractive once again!

Dental bridges are cemented to adjacent teeth, so they must be both healthy and able to be filed down. The benefits of bridges include:
