Dental bridges are a way to replace two or more missing teeth in your mouth, whereby an artificial tooth is fixed permanently to adjoining teeth.
Every patient is unique. Depending on the individual case’s basis, the dentist may choose to do a dental bridge or implants to replace missing teeth.
The first dental appointment involves preparing the abutment teeth for the crowns that will hold the bridge in place. Some of the enamel (the outside layer of the teeth) will be removed so that there is room for the crown to be placed over them.
Using a soft putty-like material that the patient bites into, an impression of the teeth will be taken by leaving an indentation of the exact outline of the teeth. Next, a plaster-like material is poured into the impression to make a model of the teeth — in which the bridge will be made in a dental lab. A temporary bridge will be placed over the abutment teeth to protect them until the permanent crown is constructed by the dental lab.
During this visit, the temporary crowns will be removed, and the permanent crowns will be checked for proper fitting. The permanent bridges will then be cemented in place using a strong, permanent type of cement. Your dentist will check the crowns to ensure that your bite is not too high and adjust it accordingly.
