Colorado Springs Dental Bridges
Replacing a missing tooth with a bridge requires only two appointments at the Rota Dental Center. We are pleased to offer our patients Zirconium restoration services-a superior method of creating precisely-designed, color-matched and highly durable ceramic restorations right in our practice.
In the past, porcelain bridges were always built upon a metal core. That was the only way they could have enough strength to withstand the tremendous biting forces that are exerted on all of your teeth. That metal core is what creates the dark blue line at the edge of many bridges, and gves a less than lifelike appearance to the porcelain.
Recent breakthroughs in adhesives, combined with the development of stronger porcelain materials, allow us to make bridges entirely out of porcelain. All-porcelain bridges maintain a translucency that makes them almost indistinguishable from natural teeth. Without the metal, the problem of the dark line at the edge of the gumline is eliminated. This allows us to place the edge of the bridge above the gumline, and that’s healthier for your teeth and gums.
Upon completion, your mouth will be fully functional with beautiful, natural-looking teeth.
