A great smile is usually the first thing people notice about others. However, the image a less than perfect smile gives off is just as impressionable, but not in the way some would like. Fortunately, there are ways of correcting cosmetic dental issues, so that everyone can have the perfect “celebrity” smile. From basic teeth whitening to more in-depth procedures like orthodontics, porcelain veneers, crowns and bridges, almost any dental problem can be corrected.
Porcelain Fixed Bridges in Bethesda MD, would be a good option for those who have one or two missing teeth. The porcelain fixed bridge fits two crowns over the existing teeth, with the false tooth or teeth, fitting along the gum line between the two crowns. Porcelain fixed bridges are used for a number of dental complications, such as to fill in spaces caused by missing teeth, to maintain facial shape, to prevent any remaining teeth from drifting out of alignment, and to improve a person’s ability to speak and eat food. They can also be used to replace and upgrade from partial dentures to a permanent dental application.
The procedure for attaching Porcelain Fixed Bridges in Bethesda MD, is a fairly simple one, which usually takes one or two office visits. The dentist will numb the area which needs the porcelain fixed bridge, and carefully remove some of the enamel on the two existing teeth which the crowns will fit over. An impression or mold of the area is then taken and sent to a dental lab, who will then create the porcelain fixed bridge. Dental labs are highly skilled at creating fabricated dentures, crowns, and dental implants. Once the bridge is made, the dentist would either temporarily or permanently bond the bridge to the two existing teeth. Once bonded in place, the porcelain fixed bridge will look as natural as the other teeth.
