A dental bridge is a porcelain treatment option that is used to replace a missing tooth. Anchored between two dental crowns, a dental bridge is exactly what the name implies – a bridge crossing a gap in your teeth. It is a fixed dental restoration that typically lasts for many years, as long as you’re taking care of your teeth properly.
At Midlothian Dental Arts, our dentists take great pride in creating natural, long-lasting dental bridges that will improve the look and function of your smile. It typically requires two visits to our office to complete the dental bridge procedure.
Some advantages of dental bridges include:
- Because they are made from porcelain, dental bridges blend seamlessly in with the natural color of teeth around them. They also do not have the ugly gray line at the gumline that is often associated with metal bridges.
- Porcelain bridges are incredibly strong and last for many years.
- Unlike dentures, bridges do not need to be removed for cleaning. They can be taken care of just like natural teeth by regular brushing and flossing.
