Porcelain Bridges

Smile Restoration

A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap -these two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth- and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.

A bridge is used to correct the gap created by a missing tooth or missing teeth. It is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap with a tooth-like restoration in the gap. Bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants and are typically made of metals, alloys or porcelain. Porcelain makes the restoration look like real teeth in shape and in color.

What Types of Dental Bridges Are Available?
There are three main types of dental bridges:

  • Traditional bridges involve creating a crown for the tooth or implant on either side of the missing tooth, with a pontic in between. Traditional bridges are the most common type of bridge and are made of either porcelain fused to metal or ceramics.
  • Cantilever bridges are used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth.
  • Maryland bonded bridges (also called a resin-bonded bridge or a Maryland bridge) are made of plastic teeth and gums supported by a metal framework. Metal wings on each side of the bridge are bonded to your existing teeth.

How porcelain bridges work?

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap — these two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth — and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials.

When are porcelain bridges needed?

  • Restore your smile

  • Maintain the shape of your face
