Porcelain Bridges in Beverly Hills

What Are Porcelain Bridges?

Porcelain bridges are fixed dental appliances that are attached to surrounding teeth. They involve two crowns on both ends, which go over two anchoring teeth (abutments). The fake teeth, also called pontics, fill in the gap where the missing tooth or teeth are. Bridges create a more organic appearance, improving your smile significantly.

Am I a Good Candidate for Porcelain Bridges?

If you have had teeth removed and don’t want a dental implant as a replacement, you may be an ideal candidate for porcelain bridges. If you want a semi-permanent option instead of dentures, dental bridges can be a good choice. Patients with weak jawbone structures that cannot support dental implants may also get fitted for porcelain bridges instead.

It is important that you have good oral health without periodontal or gum disease. If you have oral problems, they need to be treated before you can get porcelain bridges.

Your Consultation

Your consultation with Dr. Patric Cohen will involve an oral examination. Dr. Cohen will check the health of your gums, especially in the target areas. It is important that the surrounding anchoring teeth are viable and strong enough to support the crowns.

A discussion of your general health may also take place to ensure that there are no underlying conditions that could cause issues.

Frequently Asked Questions

To help our patients make informed decisions about their oral health, here are some quick answers to common questions about The Dental Sedation Center’s migraine treatment.

How Long Do Porcelain Bridges Typically Last?

With proper care and maintenance, porcelain bridges can last very long. They are known for their durability and can often provide decades of service. However, their lifespan may vary depending on individual factors like oral hygiene and daily habits.

Are Porcelain Bridges Noticeable When You Smile?

No, porcelain bridges are designed to blend seamlessly with natural teeth. Dr. Patric Cohen ensures that the color and shape of the bridge match your existing teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable when you smile.

Is There an Age Limit for Getting Porcelain Bridges?

There is no strict age limit for getting porcelain bridges and they can be a suitable solution for a wide range of age groups. Dr. Cohen will evaluate a patient’s dental health and discuss the best options for their unique needs regardless of age.

Is It Painful When a Porcelain Bridge Is Placed?

It is not typically painful and local anesthesia will be used to numb the area, ensuring minimal discomfort during the procedure. Dr. Cohen and the team will prioritize the patient’s comfort throughout the process for your peace of mind.

Do Porcelain Bridges Require Special Care or Maintenance?

Porcelain bridges do not require extensive maintenance. Regular oral hygiene practices, such as brushing and flossing, will be essential to keeping them in good condition, but you will also be provided with additional guidance to ensure proper care for your new oral fixture.

Are Porcelain Bridges Covered by Dental Insurance?

Dental insurance coverage for porcelain bridges will vary depending on the patient’s insurance policy. Patients are advised to check with their insurance provider to determine the extent of their coverage, while our team will be on-hand assisting in verifying benefits and providing cost estimates.

Do Porcelain Bridges Function as Well as Real Teeth?

Porcelain bridges function very well, though they may not be entirely identical to natural teeth. However, they offer reliable chewing and biting capabilities and can effectively restore oral function. Dr. Cohen customizes porcelain bridges to align with the patient’s bite, ensuring they perform as close to natural teeth as possible.

The Procedure

Getting porcelain bridges can require more than one visit. The first visit will be for getting impressions. The impressions of your teeth and gum structure will be sent to the dental laboratory, where a temporary bridge will be created.

On your second visit, you will be asked to wear the temporary bridge. Dr. Cohen will check to ensure that the color is similar to your existing teeth and the fit. He will also adjust the bridge to ensure a proper fit. Once you feel comfortable, the bridge will be cemented permanently.


There is no downtime or recovery period needed after getting a dental bridge. After you get your porcelain bridge, you will be given instructions on how to care for your new oral fixture. You may want to avoid hot or cold drinks to prevent sensitivity. Hard and crunchy foods may also lead to too much pressure, resulting in discomfort.
