Get Your Smile Back

Porcelain fillings, also known as inlays and onlays, are an aesthetic and durable option for repairing damaged or decayed teeth. At Cobb Dental Associates in Marietta, GA, we offer porcelain fillings as a natural-looking and long-lasting alternative to traditional silver (amalgam) fillings.

What is a Porcelain Bridge?

A porcelain bridge is a dental restoration that consists of one or more artificial teeth, known as pontics, that are anchored to the surrounding teeth using crowns. The crowns, which are placed on the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth or teeth, serve as support for the pontic and help to hold the bridge in place

Advantages of Porcelain Bridges

Aesthetic appeal: Porcelain is a strong and durable material that is designed to match the color and texture of natural teeth. As a result, porcelain bridges are virtually indistinguishable from your own teeth and can help to restore the natural appearance of your smile.

 Durability: Porcelain bridges are very strong and can last for many years with proper care.

 Functionality: Porcelain bridges can help to restore the function of your teeth, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

 Easy to maintain: Porcelain bridges are easy to care for and can be cleaned and maintained in the same way as your natural teeth.

Disadvantages of Porcelain Bridges

While porcelain bridges offer many benefits, there are also some drawbacks to consider: 

Cost: Porcelain bridges can be more expensive than other treatment options, such as dental implants or traditional bridges.

Preparation: In order to place a porcelain bridge, the surrounding teeth must be prepared by removing some of the enamel to make room for the crowns. This can be a more invasive procedure than other options, such as dental implants, which do not require any preparation of the surrounding teeth. 

Limited lifespan: While porcelain bridges can last for many years, they do have a limited lifespan and may need to be replaced eventually.
