Are you ready for a completely different dental experience? If you need to restore a tooth, or several, at Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, we have created a center focused on you, your comfort, and superior results. If you need a tooth restoration, we place all-porcelain bridges. Why? These are superior in how they look and function.

What is a Dental Bridge?

Our Atlanta dental bridges are a replacement tooth, known in the dental arts as a “pontic,” which is usually fused between two porcelain crowns to replace a missing tooth. The two crowns that hold the pontic in place are attached to your teeth on each side of the replacement tooth. This is called a “fixed bridge.” Cosmetic dental bridges are one way to replace one or more missing teeth. Fixed bridges cannot be removed from your mouth, as is possible with removable partial dentures. Bridges can reduce your risk of gum disease, help correct some bite issues, and improve the quality of your speech.

Why Do We Believe in All-Porcelain Dental Bridges?

All-porcelain bridges are what we use unless there is a compelling reason to use another treatment. When properly seated, porcelain bridges are virtually as strong or stronger than traditional metal versions of the past. The appearance is identical to a natural tooth, allowing light to pass through for a beautiful translucent effect, just like nature created in your existing teeth.

Why Get a Dental Bridge?

If you have one or more missing teeth and are committed to good oral hygiene, you should discuss this procedure with one of our cosmetic dentists. If gaps are left unfilled, they eventually lead to the surrounding teeth drifting and moving out of position, leading to more dental and oral problems. Additionally, spaces from missing teeth can cause your other teeth and your gums to become far more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease.

What is the Procedure for a Porcelain Bridge?

The first step in restoring a lost tooth or teeth is a full examination. At Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, we promise to advise you on the most effective treatment for you as an individual. All of our patients expect – and receive – VIP treatment, from start to finish. The procedure involves the following steps:

  • The teeth beside the gap are prepared so the crowns will fit firmly and securely.
  • Impressions are taken of your teeth so that your replacement teeth will fit exactly into the gap and look and feel natural.
  • A temporary bridge is placed.
  • A second appointment, in which the custom bridge is placed will occur a couple of weeks later. The final porcelain bridge is cemented in place, there for the long term.

What are the Benefits of a Porcelain Bridge?

The benefits of these custom tooth restorations include:

  • Natural looking tooth or teeth.
  • Long-lasting.
  • Help keep your mouth and gums healthy and strong.
  • Restore your smile, no gaps.
  • Custom-created to match your teeth in color, shape, and appearance.

Why Should I Choose a Porcelain Fixed Bridge to Restore a Lost Tooth?

There are several reasons why these restorations are so effective and popular. While some patients may choose to have an implant – another option we offer at Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, a fixed bridge can fill a gap perfectly and require less time to complete. The advantages include:

  • Your fixed bridge is there for the long term, firm and secure.
  • No need for adhesives and the inconveniences associated with partial dentures.
  • Easy to care for once placed – brush as normal.
  • Leaves you feeling confident in your smile.
