If you’re having a tooth-colored bridge made, it could be a porcelain-and-metal bridge, or at 7Dental with new technology available today, it could also be an All-Porcelain bridge. To have enough strength to withstand biting forces, porcelain bridges used to always be built upon a metal core. If you’ve ever noticed a dark blue line at the edge of a bridge now you know what caused it: the dark metal inside the porcelain.
New breakthroughs in adhesives and stronger porcelain materials now make it possible to make bridges entirely out of porcelain. All-porcelain bridges maintain a translucency that makes them hard to tell from natural teeth. Without metal, the problem of a dark line at the edge of the gums is eliminated. This allows us to place the edge of the bridge above the gum line and that’s healthier for your teeth and gums.
When you want to improve your smile, an all-porcelain bridge is a beautiful and natural looking choice!
