Dental Bridges

The Dental Bridge Process We Follow

We’ll get things started by scheduling a one-on-one consultation with you. At your consultation, we’ll figure out whether a dental bridge is the right solution for you, and whether the process will require another extraction to make room or a dental implant to support the bridge.

At your dental bridge appointment, we’ll apply a local anesthetic to keep you as comfortable as possible.
We’ll shape the supporting adjacent teeth (sometimes called abutments) in order to make room for the crowns that will be placed on top of the anchoring teeth.
We make an impression of the area and send it to the dental lab to ensure your dental bridge has a secure custom fit.
We’ll install a temporary bridge to protect the area while we complete the custom bridge.
You’ll come in for a second visit, at which we will place and adjust your permanent bridge, then – if everything fits comfortable – cement it into place.
We’ll set a follow-up appointment to make sure your bridge remains comfortable and functional.

Why Replace a Missing Tooth?

  • Improve confidence and aesthetic appearance of your mouth
  • Restore ability to chew comfortably
  • Restore any speaking difficulties caused by the missing tooth
  • Correct misalignment and jaw shifting caused by the missing tooth
