Hi, my name is Dr Warren, I’m the principal dentist of Lifestyle Smiles here at Brighton in Melbourne. Yesterday one of our new patients Courtney from St Kilda asked me, should I replace the gap with a dental implant? Or a porcelain bridge? What is better? I thought this is one of the common questions we get, so let’s make a short video so I can share with you what I shared with her.
First of all, let’s look at a dental implant.
Let’s look at another situation, let’s just say you are suitable for implants but you have a few teeth next door that have really old and broken down fillings. It may be more cost and time effective to replace the missing tooth with a porcelain bridge since some teeth need porcelain crowns anyway.
So as you can see, choosing the best treatment option is multifactorial…
If you are not sure what is best for you, and want a professional opinion, we would love to help. Simply complete the form on the website, give us a call, or send us a direct message on social media, and we will help you organise your appointment. See you in the next video.
