What You Should Know about Dental Bridges
Bridges have been around for a long time, and with good reason: they work! Today’s bridges are made up of one or more porcelain crowns mounted onto a metal frame. On each end of the frame are brackets that attach to the patient’s natural teeth on either side. Because today’s porcelain dental material can be very closely matched to the shade of a person’s natural teeth, dental bridges are barely noticeable to other people.
Types of Dental Bridges
There are two types of dental bridges available at our Dripping Springs, TX, office: removable and fixed. Patients who choose removable bridges can take them out for cleaning. For patients who prefer a more permanent solution, fixed (non-removable) bridges are available. Many patients prefer fixed bridges because they don’t require the same type of special cleaning methods that removable bridges do. Dr. White can discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each type and can help you decide which is right for you.
