Fixed Teeth Bridges

A dental or teeth bridge is a permanent group of the tooth and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.There are many types of bridges.

You and your dentist will examine the best choices for your special case. The “fixed bridge” is the most popular type and is normally made of enamel fused to metal. This type of bridge consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected to false teeth, filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

Advantages of Porcelain Bridges

Disadvantages of Porcelain Bridges

  • The teeth on each side of the lost tooth or teeth must be made for a restoration
  • All of the teeth in the dental bridge are attached, so flossing is more complex
  • If one tooth on the bridge has a difficulty, the whole bridge must be replaced
  • Because porcelain bridges are included many teeth they typically cost several times more than a basic one-tooth crown.

Process of placing a fixed dental bridge

Getting a bridge usually requires two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for several weeks until your next appointment.
Second visit

At the second visit,

your permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit. Occasionally your dentist may only temporarily cement the bridge, allowing your teeth and tissue time to get used to the new bridge. The new bridge will be permanently cemented at a later time.

You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of the procedure. Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new permanent bridge.
