A porcelain fixed bridge, also known as a traditional bridge, is a non-removable dental appliance used to replace a missing tooth (or missing teeth). This is the most popular and most natural looking type of dental bridge. Benefits of a porcelain fixed bridge include

  • Filled gaps left by missing teeth
  • Prevention of shifting teeth due to extra space
  • A fully functioning bite
  • Retention of your face’s natural shape
  • Replacement of a partial denture
  • Unhindered speech
  • A natural, radiant smile

Porcelain fixed bridges are comprised of two crowns that go over the teeth adjacent to the gap. We call these abutment teeth. Between the crowns, we place an artificial tooth, known as a pontic. This tooth will look, and function, like a natural tooth. Best of all, when you smile, no one will know you have a dental appliance!
