Porcelain bridges are a great treatment option to replace a missing tooth.
Other options include dental implants or a removable partial denture. At Smile Blue Ridge, we take great pride to ensure our porcelain bridges look and function just like your natural teeth.
Porcelain bridges are great because they stay fixed in place and aren’t cemented to the surrounding teeth. They’re not removable and are much more durable than a denture. There’s no metal in our porcelain bridges so nobody will be able to see your dental work. When properly cared for, these bridges should last many years.
Porcelain bridges require the surrounding teeth be prepared for a restoration, which some people don’t prefer. Porcelain bridges can also be tough to clean, because all of the teeth within the bridge are connected. Also, if one of the teeth in the bridge has an issue then the entire bridge will need to be replaced. If the surrounding teeth are strong and healthy teeth, a dental implant can be a more conservative option.
During your consultation we’ll discuss all options so you can decide which treatment is best for you.
