The Process of Creating a Dental Bridge

If you are missing a tooth you should strongly consider having it replaced. Besides the aesthetic disadvantage of missing a tooth, it could also cause structural changes to your mouth and jaw, as well as making it difficult to eat or speak properly.

Dental bridges offer the following advantages:

  • Effective solution for the replacement of missing teeth
  • Offers both functional and aesthetic correction
  • The bridge allows a patient to chew and eat normally
  • Help to reduce the risk of bone loss from the jaw
  • Easy maintenance
Impressions

Impressions

After the area has been prepared, an impression is taken that is then sent to the dental lab. The lab is able to use the impression to create a porcelain bridge that will fit properly and feel as close to your natural teeth as possible.

Delivery procedure

We will fit you with a temporary bridge while we wait for the lab to craft your permanent bridge. When the lab is finished (in approximately 2 weeks), we will permanently cement the crown to your existing tooth structures.
