Fixed bridges are a permanent replacement for missing teeth. At Oceanview Dental, we use porcelain fixed bridges as part of our commitment to help you achieve a beautiful smile. There are many types of dental bridges available, and our skilled dentists will be able to determine which one will work best for your smile. Typically, a porcelain fixed bridge consists of two dental crowns and a replacement tooth called a pontic. The crowns will be placed on the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth to anchor the pontic. When a perfect fit and bite is ensured, the bridge will be cemented into place.
Drs. Hargas and Linn may suggest porcelain fixed bridges to:
- Replace missing teeth
- Alleviate stress on the bite
- Improve your ability to eat and speak properly
- Restore facial volume and shape
- Prevent remaining teeth from shifting out of position
