Porcelain Fixed Bridges
A porcelain fixed bridge is a non-removable dental prosthesis that can be used to replace lost teeth. Because they mimic your real teeth, they are the most popular type of bridge. Two or more crowns are placed over the anchoring or abutment teeth in this type of bridge. The gap left by the lost tooth or teeth is filled with one or more pontics, or artificial teeth. Dental bridges are quite durable and can endure for many years, however, they may need to be replaced or re-cemented owing to regular wear.
Porcelain crowns are commonly used to restore teeth that have been damaged, worn excessively, or have had major sections of their structure destroyed by tooth disease for both of these reasons. Porcelain crowns are custom-made to match your teeth’s form, size, and colour, giving you a natural-looking, long-lasting smile.
Porcelain Fixed Bridges Treatment Procedure
Obtaining a bridge normally necessitates at least two visits. The two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a section of enamel to allow for a crown while the teeth are numb. Following that, a highly accurate imprint (mould) is created and delivered to a dental laboratory, where the bridge is manufactured. In addition, until your next appointment, a temporary bridge will be built and worn for many weeks.
Your permanent bridge will be evaluated, modified, and cemented at the second visit to ensure a correct fit. Your dentist may simply cement the bridge briefly to give your teeth and tissue time to adjust to the new bridge. At a later date, the new bridge will be securely cemented.
At the conclusion of your treatment, you will be given care instructions. Brushing, flossing, and frequent dental appointments will help your new permanent bridge last longer.
