Porcelain Fixed Bridges

When a patient has missing teeth, simple tasks such as chewing food become much more difficult. The remaining teeth are forced to compensate for the missing teeth, which can lead to uneven wear.

Patients with missing teeth may also struggle to speak clearly, and they can feel self conscious about their smiles. In this situation, a fixed porcelain bridge can be the ideal solution.

Types, Benefits & Treatment: Porcelain Bridges

A fixed bridge is a dental prosthetic used to replace missing teeth. It is used by patients who still have some of their natural teeth, as the bridge anchors itself to neighboring teeth (called the abutment teeth).

The bridge is attached to the abutment teeth on either side of the missing tooth or teeth, and an artificial tooth (called a pontic) goes in the space where the tooth is missing in order to “bridge” the gap. Fixed bridges are natural-looking and make it easier for patients to function in their daily lives.

At Advanced Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we provide our patients with fixed bridges made out of porcelain for the most realistic and attractive results.
