Dental Fixed Bridges

Dental Bridges

A fixed bridge is an appliance made of a metal alloy covered with porcelain. They can also be made out of high strength porcelain. They are used to replace missing teeth in the most natural way possible. This procedure usually takes a few appointments at our local Ipswich surgery to complete and is very similar to having a crown placed on a tooth.

Sometimes called a fixed partial denture, a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been.

Unlike a removable bridge, which you can take out and clean, a fixed bridge is not usually removed.
