A High Quality Dental Bridge to Replace a Missing Tooth
Designed to close the gap left behind by a missing tooth, a dental bridge is a replacement tooth that is anchored to supporting teeth or another adjacent dental implant. Perimeter Dental has the experience and expertise to place fixed dental bridges and restore your smile!
Bridging the Gap: A Look At The Dental Bridge Process
To kick off the dental bridge treatment, we will have a one-on-one consultation to decide if this is the best solution for you and/or if you need another potential extraction to make room or a dental implant to support the dental bridge.
1When you arrive for the dental bridge procedure, you will undergo a local anesthetic to improve comfort throughout the process.
2The supporting adjacent teeth (also known as abutments) are shaped to make additional room for the crowns that will be placed over each anchoring tooth.
3An impression of the area is made and sent to the dental lab to ensure a custom and secure fit.
4A temporary bridge is placed to protect the area while the custom dental bridge is created.
5Upon arrival of your 2nd visit, your permanent bridge is placed and adjusted; if everything fits comfortably, the bridge is cemented into place.
6Our team will follow up to ensure the comfort and full function of your brand new dental bridge.
