These bridges are non-removable and helpful in replacing missing teeth. We offer different types of bridges, and we will prescribe the one which is most suitable for your dental condition. But the most used bridge is the traditional bridge. This is made of porcelain infused with metal. The porcelain helps to give a natural look to the bridge, due to which they are preferred by many patients. The traditional bridge comprises of two crowns. The crowns go over two anchoring teeth and are attached to the pontic. This helps to fill the gap of one or more missing teeth.
Bridges are very durable but might need replacement or re-cementing due to normal wear.
A fixed bridge can be used for the following reasons:

If you are conscious of any dental imperfection, attractive porcelain veneers can be of help. Veneers can not only improve your dental condition but also protect the existing structure of your teeth. These structures are discreet yet durable and can be used as an alternative where moderate treatment is necessary to get the required result.
Porcelain veneers have the property to endure normal dental functions even though thin pieces of veneers are used. Moreover, different shapes and sizes can also be made using porcelain. Porcelain veneers can be used to improve the following conditions:
Crooked or asymmetrical teeth
Too large or small teeth

Along with correcting dental defects, porcelain veneers can also be used to give the dental restoration a uniform appearance and make it aesthetically pleasing.
