What Are the Benefits of Porcelain Fixed Bridges?
Porcelain fixed bridges are a durable and cost-effective alternative to dental implants. They are good options for people for whom dental implants are not an option, either due to cost or medical concerns. The porcelain is also colored to match your natural teeth, making it blend in with the rest of your smile.
Is a Porcelain Fixed Bridge Comfortable?
After you adjust to having a tooth again, you won’t even notice that you have a bridge. A porcelain fixed bridge feels just as comfortable as your natural teeth and restores the functioning of your teeth as well.
What Is the Procedure for Getting a Porcelain Fixed Bridge?
Getting a porcelain fixed bridge requires two trips to our dentist office in El Segundo. During your first visit, your dentist will prepare the abutting teeth and take an impression that will be used to create the permanent bridge. A temporary bridge will be installed to protect your teeth until the latter arrives.
A specialized dental laboratory will custom make your porcelain fixed bridge using the impressions we send them. When the permanent porcelain fixed bridge arrives at the office, you’ll come back in to have it placed.
