Restoring with a Porcelain Bridge using E-Max or Zirconia
What are my options for one of more missing teeth? when replacing missing teeth you have two options —a dental bridge or a dental implant. In your consult, Dr Bloom will present his treatment recommendations based on your specific needs and wants, and how he;d treat a family member. If we’re replacing missing/broken teeth in the front of the mouth, what we call the the smile zone, Dr Bloom may prefer a brigde instead of a dental implant treatment. Depending on your unique situation, when treating multiple teeth in more than one area, bridgework is less complex and more predictable than dental implants.
What is a dental bridge? This is what we call a multi unit restoration, think of it as two or more crowns splinted together, one of the crowns will fill the gap from the missing tooth. The dental bridge is made from porcelain, a material that offers beauty and strength. Dr. Bloom works with E-Max and Zirconia— E-Max is a gorgeous porcelain that is bonded to the natural teeth. The bonded E-Max bridge is exceptionally strong, while having a natural lustre. Our ceramic artisan can customize the bridge with feldspathic porcelain. With meticulous detail and care, our ceramist layers by hand so your bridge with have the look and feel of a natural teeth. Zirconia, the strongest of all porcelain is another optimal treatment when layered with feldspathic porcelain. Choosing the right mix of materials is integral to the success of your treatment with regard to aesthetics, function, long term wear and your comfort.
Why do I need a provisional? Think of it as protoytype. We need to know that the fit, shape, contour, shading of your provisional bridge is spot on. This is a short trial period to test every aspect of your treatment before going to completion. This is the only way we practice when we’re restoring one or more teeth with a porcelain bridge.
Dr. Bloom has a wealth of knowledge in this restorative process, and partners with ceramic artisans so that the bridge restoration looks life-like and natural. This is the ideal treatment solution should you prefer not to have implant treatment.
