Porcelain Fixed Bridges
When consumers think about orthodontics, braces are the first thing to come to mind. However, orthodontics is concerned with the position of the teeth, what has caused them to arrive at their current position, and what future movement may be needed so that a patient’s bite is fully functional.
A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance that can be a convenient way to restore your smile when you have one or more missing teeth. The bridge gets its name because it literally “bridges the gap” between the remaining teeth.
Several types of bridges are available. Porcelain Fixed Bridges are the most popular because they closely replicate the look and feel of natural teeth.Unlike removable partial dentures, fixed bridges cannot be taken out of your mouth. They remain in place as you eat, speak and sleep—just like natural teeth. We proudly use the latest technology and finest materials to produce porcelain fixed bridges that offer superior fit, function and aesthetics. We will provide you with instructions on how to care for your new appliance. As with natural teeth, proper oral hygiene, good eating habits and regular dental visits will help maintain the life of your porcelain fixed bridge.

• Restore your smile by filling the gap left by missing teeth
• Support the facial tissues for a youthful look
• Help prevent the remaining teeth from shifting
