The bridge procedure is typically performed in three office visits. On the first visit, we will prepare the teeth on either side of the area with missing teeth for a crown. This typically involves removing some of the enamel to make room for the crown material. After the tooth has been reshaped and prepared, we will make an impression to fabricate a custom bridge. We will check the health of your gums on the second visit and then place the bridge on your last visit.
Dental bridges may be an alternative to dental implants for patients with missing teeth. We can determine whether you will be a good candidate for a bridge or other tooth replacement procedures during your consultation. We can effectively restore your smile and help you maintain the shape of your face with a simple bridge procedure.
