What Materials are Dental Bridges Made From?
Dental bridges are usually made from porcelain, metal, or a combination. Dr. Ledbetter will work with you to decide which type of dental bridge is best for you.
Porcelain Dental Bridges
They are made to match the color of your natural teeth. Porcelain is a solid material that can last for many years with proper care.
Metal Dental Bridges
Metal dental bridges are usually made from gold, platinum, or a base-metal alloy such as cobalt-chromium. Metal bridges are also solid and can last for many years. The main advantage is that they are usually less expensive than porcelain bridges.
Composite Dental Bridges
They are made from a tooth-colored resin material bonded to the teeth on either side of the space. Composite bridges are less expensive than porcelain ones but are not as strong or durable.
