Similar to crowns, the idea of getting a dental bridge can produce some fear and anxiety. Rest easy, getting a dental bridge can usually be done in just two visits to our office.
First Visit: Preparation
Preparation involves re-contouring the anchor teeth to prepare for the bridge. We remove a portion of the enamel on these teeth to allow room for a bridge to be placed over them. Next, digital impressions of the teeth are taken and sent to the digital lab. Dr. Lemon will make a temporary bridge to protect the exposed teeth and gums while the permanent bridge is being made.
Second Visit: Placement
During the second visit, your temporary bridge will be removed and the new permanent bridge will be checked and adjusted, as necessary, to achieve a proper fit.
