A fixed porcelain bridge is a non-removable dental appliance used to replace one or more missing teeth. Porcelain bridges can fill gaps left by missing teeth as well as restore function to the bite. At our dental practice, we provide porcelain bridges that are designed to improve the appeal of your smile while improving your bite. Each dental bridge is comprised of an artificial tooth, called a pontic, and two dental crowns. The crowns are attached to the natural teeth or dental implants next to the gap left by the missing tooth in order to support the pontic and anchor it in place. Porcelain dental bridges are very stable and are designed to look and function like your natural teeth. Because your dental bridge is made of porcelain, it will blend in with the natural color and appearance of your smile.
In addition to enhancing the function and appearance of your smile, a dental bridge in Layton, Utah, can benefit your oral health by preventing the remaining teeth from shifting position.
