Porcelain-fixed bridges in Newmarket are among the most popular dental implants because they are very natural-looking, durable and easy to maintain. Find out how these bridges work, their benefits, and what you can expect when getting them. 

Why get fixed bridges?

If you want to replace your missing teeth and avoid the traditional dentures and plastic look, then fixed bridges are your best option. Bridges can be attached to just one tooth or several.

 

Aside from improving the missing spaces in your teeth, here are the other benefits of dental bridges:

 

  • Retains the position of the remaining teeth. 

  • Improves your facial shape.

  • Enhances speech and eating habits

  • Helps you to regain your smile

  • Permanent and durable compared to dentures. 

What happens during a dental bridge procedure?

If you are considering this procedure, your dentist will require you to visit them twice. 

 

During your first visit:

 

  1. Your dentist will remove a part of your enamel for the dental crown

  2. Once the mould is finished, your dental bridge will be made at the laboratory using the impression of your teeth.

During your second visit:

 

  1. Your dentist will place your bridge temporarily using cement. By doing so, your teeth and tissues will regenerate.

  2. Your dentist will permanently cement the bridge as soon as everything is in good condition. 

Aftercare instructions 

 

With proper care, you can extend the lifespan of your dental bridge up to 10 years. The following are oral care habits you should observe :

 

  1. Avoid eating sugary candies and sticky foods.

  2. Brush and floss daily.

  3. Rinse your mouth with mouthwash to prevent the growth of bacteria.

  4. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and follow proper brushing of teeth.

  5. Visit your dentist regularly for cleanings and check-ups.

Your porcelain-fixed bridge cost depends on the number of missing teeth which need replacement. Nevertheless, bridges are an effective way to close gaps in your smile. If you need help with your teeth, contact your reliable Newmarket dentist today!
