What are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are prosthetic devices anchored on neighboring teeth that replace one or more missing teeth. They consist of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap — these are called abutment teeth — and a false tooth/teeth in between. Bridges are supported by natural teeth or dental implants, which serve as a foundation for the bridge. They are a great option for improving your smile and the functionality of your teeth.

What to Expect With Dental Bridges

The process for getting a dental bridge typically involves two or more visits. During your first appointment, the abutment teeth are prepared by reshaping these teeth to properly fit the crowns. Then, impressions of your teeth are made, which serve as a model from which the bridge, crowns and pontics (false teeth) will be made by a dental lab. A temporary bridge will be set to protect your exposed teeth and gums while the bridge is being made. On a subsequent visit, the temporary bridge is removed, and the new porcelain or metal bridge will be checked and adjusted, as necessary, to ensure a proper fit. Once achieved, it is permanently cemented into place.
