PFM DENTAL BRIDGE INFORMATION
2 day process
Bridges and Types of Material:A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing tooth by joining an artificial tooth definitively to adjacent teeth. A bridge will span the area where teeth are missing. They are attached to the natural teeth (called Anchor).
The cost is based on each unit. A unit represents a tooth. The bridge will have a minimum of two anchor teeth. Typically, an anchor tooth on each side of the missing teeth/tooth.
Bridges: Patients have two options for materials used to make the units on the bridge, either Zirconia or Porcelain Fused to High Noble Metal (PFM).
PORCELAIN FUSED TO HIGH NOBLE METAL (PFM). PFM bridges and crowns can be thought of as a hybrid as they are made from both all -metal and all-ceramic materials. A metal alloy is used to create a thin thimble-like “cap” that fits snugly over the tooth. Porcelain is then fused over the substructure to form the shape of the unit or crown and give it a white tooth-like appearance. Porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations have a 50+ year track record of providing lasting and durable service
