Porcelain Bridges

Engineered for excellence

At My Dentist for Life, missing teeth is no laughing matter. We understand the impact that missing teeth can have on not only your smile, but your confidence, and your ability to live your daily life as you please. If you are suffering from a missing tooth or multiple teeth, Dr. Rizvi would love to speak with you about porcelain bridges. Bridges are created with high precision technology, and allow you to get back to living your life with a beautiful, complete smile.

Bridges 101

Before we get into the fun part about all of the wonderful benefits porcelain bridges can provide, we should probably explain what they are and how they work. Dental bridges are a tried and true way to replace missing teeth. A bridge can replace a single tooth, or multiple teeth.

The fabricated tooth or set of teeth is crafted with high precision, 3D technology to look and function just like your natural teeth, and is anchored to surrounding teeth using dental crowns. For added stability, longevity, and peace of mind, a bridge can also be secured with a dental implant.

Bridge Benefits

The benefits of replacing missing teeth with a porcelain bridge are numerous, including functional, cosmetic, and health benefits.

Functional benefits

If you are living with a missing tooth or teeth, you understand the frustration that comes along with it. There is not only a gaping hole in your smile, but a gap between you and enjoying your favorite foods like you used to. A porcelain bridge is durable, long-lasting, and supported by crowns, allowing you to eat and live your life as you would with all of your natural teeth.

Cosmetic benefits

We live in an age where missing teeth is socially unacceptable. The embarrassment and discomfort of missing teeth can prevent patients from living their lives to the fullest. Beautifully crafted using high precision, 3D technology, a porcelain bridge from My Dentist for Life will blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth, and restore your smile to its complete, healthy brilliance.

Health benefits

Most people understand the cosmetic and functional benefit of replacing missing teeth, but what most people don’t realize is that missing teeth can actually be harmful to your oral and overall health. Missing teeth can compromise the health of your mouth in many ways. Teeth on either side of the gap can shift or rotate, your bite can be affected, and without the supporting tooth root, the jawbone actually begins to deteriorate, causing the ‘sunken face’ appearance. A porcelain bridge can help you maintain optimum oral health.
