Porcelain Fixed Bridges
A porcelain bridge is a natural looking series of connected crowns that fill the gap caused by a missing tooth or a series of teeth. It is secured by the teeth on both sides of the gap. These surrounding teeth need to stay strong and able to support the bridge. This is why time is of the essence in replacing missing teeth. This support system breaks down quickly once a tooth is missing, as the bone deteriorates throughout, resulting in the entire mouth shrinking. Additionally, the gum tissue loses thickness and the symmetry with the other gum scallops changes.
What makes porcelain bridges so attractive, is it is a relatively fast treatment and requires no surgery. At the skilled hands of Dr. Bryan Kreeb and Dr. Kelly Kreeb, a porcelain bridge may be in place with just one visit. Call (704) 875-7200 today to schedule a consultation.
