Porcelain Fixed Bridges

Porcelain Fixed Bridges

 

Fixed porcelain dental bridges are non-removable type of dental appliances that offer an excellent opportunity to replace missing teeth. While there are many types of bridges, your dentist can discuss each option with you in detail. The traditional bridge is probably the most popular and is in most cases made of porcelain that has been fused to metal. The biggest benefit to porcelain fixed bridges is that they closely resemble natural teeth making for a complete restoration. The bridge is comprised of two crowns that fit over adjoining teeth with an attachment of artificial teeth.

 

Maintain Facial Shape

 

This ultimately fills the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges are durable, tough and long lasting. However, there are occasions where replacement is necessary or part of the bridge must be resized because of normal wear. A fixed bridge can be used to remedy spaces associated with missing teeth or even can be used to maintain facial shape. Bridges are also commonly used to help patients regain functionality and the ability to speak better. Most importantly, a bridge is an excellent option for greatly improving one’s smile. The procedure involved with getting a dental bridge will typically take at least two office visits.

 

Adjusted And Permanently Fixed

 

Adjusted And Permanently Fixed

 

Your dental care provider will go through the entire process resulting in the creation of a temporary bridge that will be worn for several weeks until returning for your next appointment. During the second visit, the permanent bridge will be checked, adjusted and permanently fixed resulting in a proper fit. On occasion, a bridge may only be temporarily cemented so that teeth and tissue have time to acclimate to the new bridge or dental appliance. When this is the case the bridge will be cemented permanently at a later time.
