Porcelain fixed bridges are a great way to replace your missing teeth. We provide high-quality porcelain fixed bridges for durable and effective results. Our dental teams in Shoreline and Milton, WA help you enhance your smile while improving your oral health.
A porcelain fixed bridge is a non-removable restorative appliance that connects the replacement tooth with the adjacent natural teeth. A porcelain fixed bridge is very popular as it resembles your natural teeth. This bridge has two crowns which are anchored over two existing teeth and attached to the artificial porcelain teeth to fill the gap that was created by one or more missing teeth.
Porcelain fixed bridges are durable and can last for years but they may need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
Porcelain fixed bridges are used to:
Getting a porcelain fixed bridge requires two or more dental visits to our office. In the first visit, your dentist will numb the teeth and remove a portion of enamel to prepare the anchoring teeth for a dental crown. He will take an accurate impression that is sent to a dental laboratory for bridge fabrication. A temporary bridge is placed for several weeks until the next appointment.
In the next appointment, your dentist will carefully place and cement your permanent bridge and will ensure a proper fit. Sometimes your dentist will temporarily cement the fixed bridge that allows your teeth and tissue to get adjusted to the new bridge. He may permanently cement the new bridge later.
You will get instructions to properly care for your new bridge. Proper brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist on a regular basis will help in extending the life of your porcelain fixed bridge.
We offer comprehensive cosmetic dental procedures to help you achieve a beautiful and confident smile. Our team of dental professionals provides the highest quality dentistry while ensuring the best patient experience.
