Porcelain Fixed Bridges


Porcelain dental bridges offer the ideal solution for patients missing a tooth or series of teeth. These dental bridges have a natural appearance, can greatly decrease the possibility of gum disease, and can correct speech impediments and bite difficulties. Another benefit of porcelain dental bridges is that they will eliminate the possibility that your remaining teeth on either side will shift over to fill the gap left by the missing tooth.


Porcelain dental bridges consist of a natural looking, custom made false tooth which is supported on either side by one or two porcelain crowns, or a composite bonding material. The porcelain dental bridge is then used to eliminate the gap left by the missing tooth. Porcelain dental bridges can typically provide at least ten years of comfortable wear accompanied by beautiful smiles.

Porcelain fixed bridges, much like porcelain crowns, are put in place in a two visit procedure. On your first visit, the teeth on either side of the missing tooth will be prepared for the bridge, an impression of the bridge site will be taken, and a temporary bridge will be put in place. The temporary bridge is worn while the permanent new tooth and supporting crowns are designed. On your return visit, the temporary bridge will be removed and replaced by the permanent bridge which will be fitted and adjusted for maximum comfort and a great appearance.

Porcelain fixed bridges are the perfect natural looking solution for filling gaps caused by missing teeth.
