PORCELAIN FIXED BRIDGES
A fixed bridge is a dental restoration that replaces one or more missing teeth because of either tooth loss or disease. The bridge is supported by two healthy teeth on either side of the gap.
There are three main types of bridges:
The cantilever bridge, where one tooth acts as a platform for the artificial tooth (or crown) that fills the space where the missing teeth were; The end-to-end bridge, which spans across two adjacent teeth; and The three-unit bridge, which consists of three individual units, one spanning from each end to fill in for each missing tooth.
What are porcelain fixed bridges?
Porcelain-fixed bridges are the most common form of tooth replacement. They can be made in a wide range of colors and materials, and often mimic the look and feel of natural teeth.
Porcelain-fixed bridges are constructed in a dental laboratory to fill in space left by one or more missing teeth. The bridge is then cemented into place using dental cement to support the created span.
Porcelain-fixed bridges can come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, with porcelain being just one example of material used for them. This is because they will need to imitate what is missing and blend in with your other teeth for a natural result.
How much are porcelain-fixed bridges?
Fixed bridges are a popular treatment option because they provide stability and eliminate the need to remove adjacent teeth. The bridge is made of porcelain and bonded to natural teeth on each side of the space where the tooth was removed.
Porcelain fixed bridges typically cost anywhere between $1,000 and $5,000, depending on whether you use a dentist or an orthodontist.
