Porcelain Bridges

Porcelain Bridges

A dental bridge is a false tooth (called a pontic) used to replace one or more missing teeth. The pontic is centered between two attached porcelain crowns, to create a fixed bridge. The fixed bridge is permanently cemented to the two teeth on either side of the tooth gap.

There are several different types of dental bridges. Your dentist or oral health specialist can recommend the most appropriate one for your mouth condition and the location of the missing tooth or teeth:

  • Traditional bridge – a false tooth centered between two attached porcelain crowns
  • Resin bonded – also known as a “Maryland” bridge, false teeth are fused together to metal bands and bonded to the back of the teeth on either side of the gap. This type of bridge is ideal when the missing teeth are in the front of the mouth.
  • Cantilever a type of bridge created to attach to only one tooth on either side of the tooth gap.
