A Healthy and Effective Tooth Replacement Option​

If you have a gap in your mouth that is caused by missing teeth, you might be a candidate for our porcelain fixed bridge or a removable bridge. To understand this restorative dentistry service, a few fundamental elements must be understood.

A fixed bridge consists of two anchor crowned teeth, along with a false tooth in the middle. In order 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 further 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 choose to 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!

The Fixed Bridge Process

Our skilled and highly experienced dentists can usually prepare and place your fixed bridge in two office visits. During your first office visit, one of our dentists will apply a local anesthetic so we can prepare your abutment teeth. If you have a gap in your mouth that is caused by missing teeth, you might be a suitable candidate for our McKinney porcelain fixed bridge or a removable bridge. At this point, an impression is made, which will be utilized by our in-house laboratory to create your custom-fit dental fixed bridge. In the meantime, until your permanent bridge is created, a temporary bridge will be made for you. Your second office visit will consist of fitting and attaching your porcelain bridge. Now you don’t have to worry about those missing teeth anymore!
