Port Perry Dental Porcelain Fixed Bridges
Replace missing teeth with porcelain fixed bridges
A dental bridge is a fixed, non-removable appliance that is an excellent way to replace missing teeth. There are several types of bridges. Port Perry Dental Associates will discuss the best options for your case. The traditional bridge is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal.
Porcelain fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring, abutment teeth. The crowns are attached to pontics, or artificial teeth, filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Dental implants are another effective way to replace one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly durable and will last many years, however they may need replacement or need to be re-cemented due to normal wear.
Reasons for a fixed bridge:
- Fill space of missing teeth
- Maintain facial shape
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
- Restore chewing and speaking ability
- Restore your smile
- Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance
