Dental Bridges

Dental BridgeA Dental bridge literally bridges the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth/teeth in between. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.

First, the dentist will recontour the teeth on either side of the gap by removing a portion of enamel to allow room for a crown to be placed over them.  Next, impressions are made which will serve as a model from which the bridge will be made.  The dentist will make a temporary bridge for you to wear while your permanent bridge is being made. 

During your next visit, your temporary bridge will be removed and the new permanent bridge will be checked and adjusted, as necessary, to achieve a proper fit. Multiple visits may be required to check the fit of the bridge and your bite.
