Porcelain to Metal Bridge
Ideal Candidate. Replacement of any front tooth /
teeth. Can replace multiple teeth on one bridge.
Procedure. The teeth that are adjacent to the missing
tooth are reduced in size to accommodate a crown
on each of these teeth. These crowns act as anchors on each
side of the false tooth. When you leave the first appointment
you will have a provisional plastic bridge (aka a "temporary bridge")
that will be tooth colored and shaped. It will have a pontic (the
tooth in between) in it to replace the missing tooth. When
the Porcelain to Metal Bridge has been made, you will return to
the office for placement of the bridge. Placement is done
only after the bridge is tried in and the color, shape and size
Time Commitment. 2 - 3 appointments.
Fees. Range from $900 - $1800 per tooth.
