Trusted Dentists For Porcelain Dental Bridges in Vancouver, WA
If you’re missing multiple teeth, porcelain bridges can be your smile solution. When you have missing teeth, your surrounding teeth shift to ‘fill the gap’, which causes misalignment and difficulty chewing and speaking. Many patients have aesthetic concerns with misaligned teeth, which causes further distress. In addition, misaligned teeth are harder to clean effectively which increases your risk for tooth decay and gum disease. A porcelain dental bridge is a restorative procedure used to maintain the integrity of your jaw and teeth.
Porcelain dental bridges can ‘bridge the gap’ between missing teeth.
A dental bridge procedure usually takes two visits. During the first visit, your dentist will prep the surrounding teeth for a dental crown then take an impression of the surrounding teeth and gum. This will be sent to our dental lab to create your custom bridge that will fit in your mouth perfectly. In the interim, you will receive temporary crowns to support the surrounding teeth. When your bridge arrives, we’ll schedule your next appointment. At this appointment, your dentist will remove the temporary crowns and permanently bond your custom bridge to the supporting teeth.
