Porcelain Fixed Bridges – Solana Beach, CA

There are several types of bridges and Dr. Robert Rosenfeld of Solana Beach, CA will discuss the best options for your particular case. First of all, you may be asking “What is a dental bridge?” Well, a dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth. The “traditional bridge” is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. Porcelain fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge consists to two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached to pontics (artificial teeth), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges are highly durable and will last many years. However, they may need replacement or need to be re-cemented due to normal wear.

Reasons for a fixed bridge:

~ Fill space of missing teeth.

~ Maintain facial shape.

~ Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.

~ Restore chewing and speaking ability.

~ Restore your smile.

~ Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.

What does getting a fixed bridge involve?

Getting a bridge usually requires two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for several weeks until your next appointment.

At the second visit, you permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit. Occasionally, Dr. Robert Rosenfeld may only temporarily cement the bridge, allowing your teeth and tissue time to get used to the new bridge. The new bridge will be permanently cemented at a later time.

At the conclusion of your treatment Dr. Robert Rosenfeld will provide you with care instructions. Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new permanent bridge.

Fixed bridges can help your smile look and feel great. Call Dr. Robert Rosenfeld for more information about fixed bridges or to schedule an appointment at (858)755-1189.

"Dr. Rosenfeld is the best! I’ve been going to him for 10+ years now and he’s been nothing but caring and an excellent dentist to me. He really makes a point to make sure that you’re comfortable throughout the whole appointment. He even gave me lip balm during working on my cavity to make sure I was as comfortable as possible! When I come in, I feel nervous and dreadful but Dr. Rosenfeld somehow always has a way of leaving me with a smile when we are done. Not that i will hope for another cavity though, of course."

"As good as it gets is correct!  Dr. Rosenfeld and his team are no-ka-oi!  He is a caring and kind professional with a bit o bend toward perfectionism.  The latter being a good thing when it comes to one's teeth.  At 58 he filled my first EVER cavity.  I was a bit nervous not having had that procedure ever before.  Dr. Rosenfeld took the time to make sure the area was numb to minimize my discomfort.  We agreed I probably needed a little more so he administered two more doses.  No discomfort whatsoever.  Toward the end of last year, I needed my first ever cap to repair a fissure in one of my molars.  This is where the perfectionism came into play - Dr. Rosenfeld made sure the cap exactly matched the color of my teeth. Dr. Rosenfeld is a marvelous practitioner!  I've recommended four friends to him and they all love him and his incredible team."

"Dr. Rosenfeld and his staff are absolutely AMAZING.  I have a fear of dentists and dentistry, but Dr. Rosenfeld and his outstanding team went the extra mile to make sure that I felt comfortable, reassured me that they would do anything and everything to take great care of me, and never made me feel anything but a very valued patient.  I never knew that an office would go so far to help me get through some challenging (at least for me) dental procedures.  Words cannot begin to express my gratitude for this office.  If only all businesses could provide the same level of customer service..  Oh, did I forget to mention that their work is top notch.  Worth every penny!"
