Porcelain Fixed Bridges

Restore your smile and reclaim your confidence with porcelain fixed bridges, a non-removable dental appliance designed to replace missing teeth effectively.

Understanding Porcelain Fixed Bridges:

Porcelain fixed bridges are a popular choice due to their ability to closely mimic the appearance of natural teeth. This type of bridge typically consists of two crowns placed over anchoring teeth, known as abutment teeth, with artificial teeth, called pontics, filling the gap created by missing teeth.

Benefits of Porcelain Fixed Bridges:

  • Fill the space of missing teeth seamlessly
  • Maintain the natural shape of your face
  • Prevent remaining teeth from shifting out of position
  • Restore proper chewing and speaking abilities
  • Enhance your smile with a permanent dental solution

The Procedure for Getting a Fixed Bridge:

Getting a fixed bridge typically involves two or more visits to your dentist. During the initial visit, the anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to accommodate the crowns.

Next, precise impressions of your teeth are taken to create a custom bridge, which will be fabricated in a dental laboratory. In the meantime, a temporary bridge is placed to protect your teeth and gums.

At the subsequent appointment, your permanent bridge is carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to ensure a proper fit. Your dentist may initially use temporary cement to allow for adjustments before permanently cementing the bridge in place.

Maintaining Your Porcelain Fixed Bridge:

After the procedure, your dentist will provide you with comprehensive care instructions. Consistent brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups are essential to prolonging the life of your new permanent bridge.
