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.

1
When you arrive for the dental bridge procedure, you will undergo a local anesthetic to improve comfort throughout the process.
2
The supporting adjacent teeth (also known as abutments) are shaped to make additional room for the crowns that will be placed over each anchoring tooth.
3
An impression of the area is made and sent to the dental lab to ensure a custom and secure fit.
4
A temporary bridge is placed to protect the area while the custom dental bridge is created.
5
Upon arrival of your 2nd visit, your permanent bridge is placed and adjusted; if everything fits comfortably, the bridge is cemented into place.
6
Our team will follow up to ensure the comfort and full function of your brand new dental bridge.
