Porcelain fixed bridges are non-removable appliances that are placed on teeth to replace a tooth that is missing. Porcelain bridges are made to match the natural color of your teeth and help fill in the gap where a tooth is missing. Bridges are essentially two crowns that anchor an artificial tooth in between. The two crowns are cemented onto the teeth surrounding the missing tooth to help anchor the artificial tooth into place. The artificial tooth is in place of the missing tooth to fill in the gap and allow your teeth to look natural.
When you and your Park Smiles NYC dentist decide that a fixed bridge is the right option for you, we will begin preparing the two teeth that surround the missing tooth. The teeth are prepared so that two crowns can be placed in order to support the artificial tooth. A digital impression will be taken in order for the dentist to determine the size of the crowns and artificial tooth. Once the impression is taken, it will either be sent to a dental laboratory where your bridge will be made or it will be fabricated, while you wait, in the office using CEREC. If CEREC is used, your bridge will be placed in your mouth on the very same day!
Porcelain fixed bridges are very durable and can last a very long time when they are well taken care of. Your dentist at Park Smiles NYC will give you special instructions on how you can keep your bridge clean through brushing and flossing.
