A Fixed Bridge May Be Your Solution For Missing Teeth
A fixed bridge is a great alternative for replacing missing teeth on a budget.
A Healthy and Effective Tooth Replacement Option
If you have a gap in your mouth caused by missing teeth, you might be a candidate for our porcelain fixed bridge or a removable bridge. To understand this restorative dentistry service, here are a few fundamental elements.
A fixed bridge consists of two anchor crowned teeth, along with a false tooth in the middle. For a fixed bridge to be fully supported, the abutment teeth must be strong and healthy. If healthy teeth are unavailable, we can place dental implants to secure the fixed bridge. Therefore, the two prerequisites for placing a fixed bridge in McKinney, TX, are: one or two adjacent teeth missing, and healthy teeth on both sides of this gap.
Dental bridges can be crafted by using metal, porcelain or a combination of both materials, and can last approximately 10 to 20 years with adequate oral care. When we use porcelain, our fixed bridges will be custom color-shaded to match your tooth’s natural color—no one will even know you have a porcelain bridge!
What Are Some of The Problems A Fixed Bridge Can Solve?
A fixed bridge can solve a variety of problems. Here some of the most common ones:
- Improve jaw, bite and chewing function
- Improve your speech and articulation
- Reposition surrounding teeth
- Improve the internal structure of your mouth
- Restore self-confidence
We believe that every patient has a right to our very best.
