What is a porcelain bridge?

A porcelain bridge is a treatment option for replacing a missing tooth. Mid-Columbia Dental takes great pride in producing bridges that look great, look natural, and are highly functional. We won’t accept anything less than the best in replacing a lost tooth or teeth.

If for any reason you have lost a tooth or teeth which has resulted in a gap between your remaining teeth, you are likely a candidate for a bridge. Your other options are dental implant replacements, or removable partial dentures. When you schedule a consultation with Mid-Columbia Dental we will review each of these options with you to find out which is the best treatment for you.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Bridges

Advantages:

  • They look great!
  • Mid-Columbia Dental bridges look, feel & function like natural teeth!
  • Porcelain bridges do not have the ugly gray line at the gum-line that you see with metal bridges.
  • Your porcelain bridge will last many years, as long as you’re taking care of your teeth properly.

Disadvantages:

  • The teeth on either side of the missing tooth or teeth must be prepared for a restoration.
  • All of the teeth in the dental bridge are connected, so flossing is more difficult.
  • If one tooth on the bridge has a problem, the whole bridge must be replaced.
  • Because porcelain bridges are involve multiple teeth they typically cost several times more than a basic one-tooth crown.
