Porcelain dental bridge implantation is an effective method to restore the patient’s chewing ability and aesthetics. Currently, porcelain dental bridges are chosen by many people because of their quick implementation time and reasonable cost.

1. What is a porcelain dental bridge?

Porcelain dental bridges are a fixed tooth restoration solution, helping to restore one or more lost teeth. This method not only improves the patient’s chewing function but also enhances facial aesthetics.

Similar to a traffic bridge, a porcelain dental bridge is composed of two parts: two (or more) pillars and a dental bridge. The abutment has the role of supporting the dental bridge, made from ground-up real teeth or implants. On those pillars, dental bridges are fixed to help fill the gaps of lost teeth in the jaw.

ReliabilityFrom 5 -7 yearsUp to 20 years
AestheticOver time, titanium oxidizes and can penetrate the gum tissue, causing the gum line around the crown to darken.Does not cause discoloration of the gum line. High-quality glass ceramics (Emax) are almost as transparent as real teeth.

2. How many types of porcelain dental bridges are there?

Porcelain dental bridges include 4 main types as follows:

2.1 Traditional porcelain dental bridge

With this method, healthy teeth on both sides of the tooth loss space will be selected as abutments. The dentist grinds down the abutment teeth, then attaches the porcelain bridge. Porcelain dental bridges are formed from many porcelain crowns connected together, simulating the shape and size of the lost tooth.

2.2 Planting a porcelain dental bridge

When planting a porcelain dental bridge, the dentist usually only uses one abutment tooth to support one crown. The number of abutment teeth is reduced so the stability of the Pass porcelain bridge is not good, strong biting force will affect the abutment teeth. Therefore, dentists very rarely use this method, if at all, it only applies to front teeth.

2.3 Planting Veneers porcelain dental bridge

Planting a porcelain dental bridge helps preserve the abutment teeth as much as possible. The dentist uses a metal or ceramic bracket to attach to the back of the two abutment teeth, so there is no need to grind many teeth. However, veneered porcelain bridges have poor bearing capacity and can easily fall when chewing vigorously, so they are only suitable for replacing front teeth. People with weak abutment teeth or a deep bite or crossbite cannot apply this method.

2.4 Planting a porcelain dental bridge with an Implant 

If the patient has lost many teeth or the teeth are weak, the dentist is required to insert an implant into the jawbone. This method does not affect natural teeth and has the highest stability.

3. Is porcelain dental bridge good?

Porcelain dental bridge is an effective method to restore teeth with advantages such as:

  • Implementation time is quick, total treatment time is only about 4-5 days.
  • Restore chewing function because porcelain bridges have good hardness and bearing capacity.
  • Porcelain teeth have a natural color, similar to real teeth. Therefore, planting a porcelain dental bridge will help improve facial aesthetics.
  • Restore pronunciation and communicate more clearly.
  • Porcelain teeth are a health-friendly material that does not irritate the tissues in the oral cavity.
  • The usage time is quite long if the porcelain dental bridge is properly cared for and cleaned.

At the same time, porcelain dental bridges can prevent complications caused by tooth loss such as:

  • The teeth on either side and above the missing tooth move when there is space in the jaw.
  • Temporomandibular arthritis is caused by tooth loss.

Patients need to be thoroughly examined before implanting a porcelain dental bridge

However, porcelain dental bridges also have disadvantages:

  • To successfully perform this method, the real tooth used as the abutment must be healthy. Therefore, not all cases of tooth loss can be implanted with a porcelain dental bridge. In addition, if done incorrectly, the abutment tooth can become sensitive or affect the tooth pulp.
  • In cases where many teeth are missing or the tooth loss space is too long, a porcelain dental bridge will not be the optimal choice.
  • Porcelain dental bridges cannot prevent jaw bone loss, because this method does not replace tooth roots. After a long time, bone loss will weaken the supporting teeth, causing exposed roots.
  • Patients may have difficulty cleaning dental bridges. Poor dental bridge hygiene is the cause of bad breath and gingivitis due to food accumulation under the bridge.
