Dr. Ingber, who is among leading Washington D.C. cosmetic dentists, is proud to provide his patients with leading-edge smile makeover techniques and quality patient care. In addition to a number of other cosmetic dentistry procedures, Dr. Ingber offers a variety of options for patients who are missing one or more teeth, such as natural-looking dental bridges in Washington D.C.
A dental bridge is an artificial tooth, often referred to as a pontic, which is fused between two porcelain, ceramometal, or gold crowns to fill in any gaps left by one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges are effective in treating dental issues caused by missing teeth, including smile aesthetics, irregular bite, speech difficulties, shape changes of the face, gum disease and tooth decay.
Dr. Ingber fabricates several types of dental bridges, including:
- Fixed dental bridges
- Cantilever dental bridges
- Resin-bonded dental bridges
Using his fine-tuned aesthetic judgment, Dr. Ingber determines which type of bridge will best serve each Washington D.C. dental bridge patient’s cosmetic dentistry needs and yield natural-looking results. During the procedure, Dr. Ingber administers a mild anesthetic to prepare the adjacent teeth, which will serve as anchors, for porcelain crowns, ceramometal crowns or gold crowns. Next, he takes an impression of the teeth, which is then used to sculpt the dental bridge. Dr. Ingber’s unsurpassed talent and well-trained eye allow him to identify the necessary color variations, which is a critical skill to avoid artificial-looking teeth.
When performed by a premier Washington D.C. dental bridges practitioner, such as Dr. Ingber, dental bridges can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years. However, poor dental hygiene and eating habits may affect the longevity of the dental bridge.
In addition to dental bridges, Dr. Ingber offers high-quality Washington D.C. dental implants for patients who are missing teeth. In addition, Dr. Ingber is committed to providing his Washington D.C. porcelain veneers, dental crowns and TMJ patients with the most advanced treatments and the best possible aesthetic results. This is why he uses some of the most advanced dentistry technologies and materials available, contributing to his outstanding reputation and exceptional dentistry record.
