Important Information about Dental Bridges
Dental bridges consist of a porcelain crown (or, in some cases, more than one crown) mounted on a metal frame. The frame fits over adjoining natural teeth, so that the crowns fill in where the missing teeth were. In general, there are two types of dental bridges available: “fixed” bridges (those that cannot be removed) by the patient, and removable bridges.
In the past, it typically took at least 10 to 14 days to be fitted with a dental bridge, since these appliances had to be created by an outside dental lab. But today, thanks to CEREC® technology, Dr. Brawner and his staff can fit patients with their dental bridges in just a single visit to our Austin, TX, office! Our dental bridges are every bit as strong as the old-fashioned type, and will usually last for many, many years.
