Dental bridge breakage: The first porcelain bridge I got (lower back molars with 1 middle missing tooth) did not fit my mouth at all. It was too high.
The dentist ground down an upper rear molar attempting to make it fit. It didn't. Next she tried another porcelain bridge which broke after 2 weeks while eating soft food. Then, she made another porcelain bridge that broke in the same place as the previous one after another 2 weeks of wear.
Now, the dentist wants to try a noble metal/porcelain combination. She said she has never had bridges break like this before. My right jaw is a little higher than the right. The bridge is on the right side. Is this common? ... Visitor from CA
No... the experiences you have had are definitely not common.
Seeking additional treatments from your current dentist may not be in your best interest.
Consider getting a consult with a Prosthodontist who can accurate assess what unusual occlusal dynamics are causing the multiple failures.
You may want to contact your state dental board for additional assistance.
