Bridges and Dentures at Happy Smiles Dental

Rebuilding Smiles with Compassion and Excellence

At Happy Smiles Dental, we understand the impact of missing teeth on both your oral health and self-confidence. Our comprehensive Bridges and Dentures services are designed to provide durable, comfortable, and natural-looking solutions for missing teeth. Whether you need a complete set of dentures, partial dentures, or a dental bridge, our experienced team is here to restore the function and aesthetics of your smile.

Our Solutions for Missing Teeth

  • Dental Bridges: A dental bridge fills the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth/teeth in between. Bridges can be supported by natural teeth or implants and are a durable, fixed solution for missing teeth.
  • Complete Dentures: Designed for patients who have lost all their teeth in an arch (either upper or lower), complete dentures restore appearance and oral functions. Modern dentures are comfortable, functional, and closely mimic natural teeth.
  • Partial Dentures: For those who have some natural teeth remaining, partial dentures are an excellent option. These removable appliances consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base, which is sometimes connected by a metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth.

The Process

  • Consultation and Evaluation: We begin with a thorough examination to determine the most appropriate type of denture or bridge for your needs. This includes discussing your expectations and any concerns you might have.
  • Impressions and Measurements: Accurate impressions and measurements of your jaw are taken to create dentures or bridges that fit perfectly.
  • Custom Creation: Your dentures or bridge will be custom-made in a dental lab based on the impressions and specifications provided by our dentists.
  • Fitting and Adjustments: Once your dentures or bridge are ready, you'll have a fitting appointment. We'll make any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable and secure fit.
  • Follow-Up Care: We provide guidance on how to care for your new dentures or bridge, including cleaning instructions and advice on adjusting to your new appliance.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • According to The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), children should receive their first dental checkup between six months and one year of age. This will allow your dentist to confirm the healthy development of your child’s baby teeth. From this point on, regular checkups once every six months should be the norm unless your dentist recommends otherwise.

  • Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is one of the most common dental problems—and also one of the most easily treated and avoided. Caused by plaque and bacteria buildup, gum disease can be further aggravated by tobacco use, teeth grinding, and certain medications. Gingivitis is the beginning stage of gum disease, and, if detected, is treatable. Left untreated, however, gum disease can lead to tooth and bone loss. Here are a few common symptoms of gum disease: - Red, irritated, bleeding, or swollen gums - Chronic bad breath - Loose teeth, or loss of teeth - Extreme tooth sensitivity - Receding gum line - Abscessed teeth
  • A cavity is a small hole inside of a tooth caused by tooth decay. Tooth decay is generally caused when plaque builds up outside the tooth and combines with sugar and starches in food ad drinks. This produces an acid that destroys tooth enamel and makes tooth decay possible. Left untreated, cavities can cause serious oral health problems—not to mention quite a deal of pain! The best way to prevent cavities is by regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups.
  • - Brush your teeth a minimum of two times per day. - Just as importantly, floss at least once! - Use toothpaste that contains fluoride in order to help prevent cavities. - Avoid foods with a lot of sugar, as sugar increases the amount bacteria in your mouth. - Avoid tobacco, as it stains your teeth and greatly increases your risk for oral cancer. - Brush your tongue in order to remove food particles, reduce bacteria, and keep your breath smelling fresh. - Change your toothbrush every three months. - Schedule a routine checkup with your dentist every six months, even if your teeth feel fine!
  • As mentioned above, the general consensus (which is also promoted by the American Dental Association) states that most adults and children should visit the dentist twice per year—roughly once every six months. However, it is important to remember that patients who are at a greater risk for oral cancer or gum disease may need to visit the dentist more often. The only way to be certain about your individual needs is to speak with a dentist.
  • Choosing a dentist is a personal decision that should be made based upon your dental needs, as well as your personal values. Here are a few of the reasons we believe that Digital Dental Arts is the best choice for our patients. - Convenient scheduling options. - Central location right off the Union Turnpike in Queens. - State-of- the-Art facility. - Special attention to making our patients feel comfortable. - Attention to preventative care and the development of good dental habits. - Straightforward payment process and willingness to work with insurance companies.
  • The general medical consensus affirms that the average patient should see the dentist roughly once every six months. Unfortunately, many people do not take this seriously because they do not understand the importance of dental checkups. Here are a few reasons why visiting the dentist is important. - Defends against tooth decay - Lowers your risk of chronic bad breath. - Protects against gum disease, (known professionally as Periodontal Disease.) - Lowers your risk of tooth and bone loss - Eliminate the stains that develop inevitably due to food, drinks, and tobacco - Strengthens your teeth, which can improve the quality of your life for years to come. - Helps you look and feel your best, knowing that you have a healthier and more attractive smile!
  • Absolutely! Although you may be seeing your orthodontist regularly, it is still very important that you see your dentist regularly. In fact, it is especially important that you receive regular cleaning, as braces can trap food and particles in a manner that is difficult for regular brushing to remove. This can increase your risk of many oral conditions. Dental checkups will allow your dentist to work closely with your orthodontist to make sure that your mouth stays clean and healthy while wearing braces.
  • As the name suggests, fillings are used to fill cavities after they have been treated. Here are a few important facts about fillings that all patients should know: - Receiving a filling is generally painless due to anesthetics. - Fillings are made from specially chosen materials designed to be safe and comfortable. - If you think you might need a filling, contact your dentist as soon as possible.
