The existing teeth are recontoured to provide a base for the bridge. After the abutments have been created, a mould is taken of the area which is sent to a dental lab. The lab is able to use the mould to create a bridge that will fit properly and feel as close to your natural teeth as possible. The bridge consists of two crowns on either end to place on the abutments and a pontic, which is the new tooth that replaces your missing tooth.
When the permanent bridge has been created
You will have a follow up visit to set the bridge. It will be placed on the abutments and the dentist will then use an adhesive to make sure that the bridge is set.
The bridge may take a little while to get used to, but after a few days it should feel like you have your own teeth back again. You should eat soft foods for the first few days after having your bridge placed. After the initial phase, you will be able to eat whatever you want with no issues.
If you are missing a tooth you should strongly consider having it replaced. Besides the aesthetic disadvantage of missing a tooth, it could also cause structural changes to your mouth and jaw, as well as making it difficult to eat or speak properly.
During your first visit
A precision mould will be taken. You and your dentist will also choose the right shade for your new, permanently white smile
On your second visit
Your custom designed bridge are checked for fit and shade. Then, they’re painlessly attached.
That’s it – a healthy, natural, permanently white smile you’ve always wanted.
