Fixed Partial Denture cost

Porcelain Fused to Metal Bridge

PFM dental bridges (porcelain fused to metal) must invariably employ two pillars on natural teeth (abutment teeth) and can possess multiple suspended elements between each pillar. These suspended teeth receive the name of Pontic. They are so snug against the gum that they look very much like natural teeth, emerging from the bone of the dental arch.

They entail the work of thinning-out and preparing at least two of the person's teeth. This may not be the best solution when such teeth are healthy and in excellent condition. In such case, the alternative involves the placement of dental implants into the toothless area and subsequent cementation or screw-fixing the respective dental crowns.
Exceptionally, in the case of incisors, one can consider the possibility of a type known as Maryland Bridge (adhesive denture).

Regardless of these considerations and in the event of you having opted for a dental bridge, you should remember that in short bridges, there is the possibility of opting for a bridge structure in zirconia ceramic instead of metal. You will obtain a more satisfactory aesthetic result with this material (Zirconia stabilized yttrium) due to its white colour, which eliminates the possibility of contamination by dark metal of the internal structure of the metal-ceramic bridges.

How much does it cost a Fixed Partial Denture?

The average price to recover a missing tooth with a dental bridge is $1,000.00. This is the cost of one pontic and two abutments. Gives an average cost of $333.00 per unit. In the case of two missing teeth, you must multiply this value by four units (two pontics and two abutments).
