Our dentists use porcelain dental bridges to restore your smile.
What Is a Porcelain Bridge?
One of the treatment options we offer as a missing tooth replacement is dental bridges. These are porcelain restorations that look and function like your natural tooth so you can speak, eat and chew normally again.
Who Is a Candidate for a Porcelain Bridge?
If you have an unsightly gap in your smile because of one or more missing teeth, you may be a good candidate to receive a dental bridge restoration. In addition to bridges, dental implants or removable partial dentures are possible options for you. Depending on your needs, our dentists at GoSmiles Dentistry will be happy to review your options during your scheduled consultation to find the best one for you.

What Are the Advantages of a Porcelain Bridge?
Our porcelain dental bridges can effectively replace your lost tooth or teeth so they look, feel and function normally again.
What Are the Disadvantages of a Porcelain Bridge?
There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a porcelain bridge as a tooth replacement:
- The tooth on both sides of the replacement tooth (or teeth) will need to be prepared for the bridge.
- Because the teeth in a dental bridge are connected, you will have to be more careful in order to floss those teeth effectively.
- If a tooth beneath the bridge experiences any issues, you will be looking at replacing the bridge.
How Long Do They Last?
By following our GoSmiles Dentistry cosmetic dentist’s care recommendations, you will enjoy your bridge’s performance for a long time to come, especially since we guarantee our work for years.
How Much Do They Cost?
Unlike a traditional crown in a single-tooth restoration, your dental bridge is a multi-tooth restoration. This will reflect an increased cost accordingly.
