Posterior Porcelain Bridges

Posterior porcelain bridges are used to restore a missing tooth space by using support/anchor teeth on either side of the space.  Crown preparations on these support teeth are necessary, so ideally, they should "need" a crown, and not be perfectly virgin.  Virgin neighboring teeth would obviate this option and a dental implant should be chosen instead.

Patient testimonials


"I found Clarence Tam's practise after a Google search and upon reviewing her credentials knew this was the cosmetic dentist to go with. She is highly skilled, professional, efficient, as well as accomodating and always friendly.  Due to missing lateral incisors both cuspids had been re-shaped and composite veneers added as a teenager.  Over 15 years later these had dis-coloured and desperately needed attention. At our first appointment I felt Clarence was excellent at communicating anticipated results, answered all concerns throughly and provided two possible courses of action from which to select.  She designed new composite veneers and the results are amazing (I was so happy I cried). Her attention to detail achieved a natural result which blends in with the overall aesthetics of my smile. I would recommend her services to anyone.

I got a call my my usual dentist (Onehunga Dental Centre) on Thursday, they must have had a cancellation.  According to admin records I required fillings, but in the end they happened to be on the cuspids that you fixed.  I saw Yoshini for a full check up anyway and she was impressed with your work "Clarence does excellent work".  She actually commented positively multiple times during my check up.  I wish someone talked like that about me! haha.  Quite nice that you two know each other.  As a result of Yoshi fitting me in, this means I do not require the tentative booking in August.  

Thanks again for the efforts of you and your team.  I understand this was probably a small restoration for you but it's made a significant impact on my personal confidence."
