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 was very nervous on my first visit with Dr Clarence Tam, not knowing what to expect and not a confident person talking or smiling because I was not happy with my teeth. Within minutes of meeting Clarence I felt very comfortable as she was very caring, gentle and explained every detail. I am a few months off having all work on my upper and lower mouth complete, but I love what has already been done and can't wait to see my new beautiful smile. I highly recommend this practice, especially if you are scared of dental work, like I was. You could not be in better hands. » Read more
