What to Expect with Dental Bridges
In preparation for the bridge, our dentists will drill down the support tooth to establish adequate space for the dental crown. After the teeth are prepared for the crown, digital X-rays will be taken so that a thorough visual can be attained and these, as well as the hard impressions will be sent to the dental lab where the permanent bridge is manufactured. Our dentists will cover the individual's teeth with temporary coverings for protection until the permanent bridge is ready. Once the bridge is ready, our dentists will secure the bridge and realign the fit for a normal look and comfort.
