If you’re about to replace your missing teeth with a dental bridge, our Smiley Dental Forest Lane team is more than happy to tell you the steps involved in treatment so you know what to expect when you come into our office. When you visit with us, the following steps will take place:
-Step 1: First, your dentist will prepare the teeth that are anchoring the dental bridge. To prepare them, your dentist will remove a portion of their enamel to make room for the dental crowns that make up the bridge.
-Step 2: When the teeth are the correct size and shape, your dentist will make impressions of your teeth and will send those impressions to a dental lab. While you wait for your bridge to be created, you will be given a temporary bridge.
-Step 3: Once your permanent bridge is made, your temporary bridge will be removed and your dentist will check the size, fit, and appearance of the new bridge. If it exceeds expectations, your dentist will permanently cement it into place.
