Century City, CA area patients considering these restorations can take time to learn more about them with our dentist.
What are porcelain fixed bridges?
When we think of a bridge, we think of a structure that is made to join two areas, such as an area of land. This is like the structure of a dental bridge. The dental bridge is made to “bridge the gap” that was left behind from a lost or extracted tooth. The restoration is made of porcelain, and fabricated to match the shape, size, and color of the patient’s existing teeth for seamless integration. The bridge uses the adjacent teeth to support it in place.
What are the benefits of a porcelain fixed bridge?
There are several advantages to take into consideration when choosing a tooth replacement option. Dr. Meredith Levine will explain these further during your appointment:

A bridge is a non-surgical way to replace one or many teeth. A bridge uses the adjacent teeth as anchors to support the missing tooth or teeth. With today’s dental advancements, a bridge can be fabricated in a fairly short period of time, using a metal or nonmetal foundation. Don’t let that missing tooth affect the way you speak, eat, and smile. Bridges yield immediate results that last a lifetime. Ask your dentist what type of bridge may be right for you.
