Porcelain Fixed Bridges
Dental bridges are fixed in place and are ideally used to replace any missing teeth.
While there are many types of bridges available, your dentist will help you determine which one is the best option for your needs. Traditional bridges are the most commonly used and are made from porcelain that is fused to metal. Porcelain bridges closely mimic the look of your natural teeth and are made from two crowns positioned to the anchoring teeth and attached to a false tooth or teeth to fill in the gaps. Dental bridges will last for years and are highly durable.
Reasons to Consider Porcelain Bridges
You may want to consider porcelain dental bridges to:
- Restore the ability chew and speak
- Replace missing teeth
- Restore your smile
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Prevent drifting of other teeth
- Upgrade from partial dentures to a permanent solution
Porcelain Fixed Bridge Procedure
You will need at least two appointments to place your porcelain bridge. After numbing your teeth, we will prep the two anchor teeth by removing some of the enamel. We will then make an accurate impression or mold of your teeth so the dental laboratory can properly craft a bridge that fits well. We will also create and place a temporary bridge to fill the space until the second appointment, typically several weeks later.
We will provide you with care instructions at the end of your important, which includes flossing and brushing daily, along with regular visits to the dentist.
