A Bridge – a device used to replace missing teeth – attaches artificial teeth to healthy, natural teeth. Missing teeth can impair oral functionality and affect appearance. A bridge addresses these issues by providing support to remaining teeth and by restoring the uniformity of the smile.
A bridge typically requires 2-3 appointments. During the first appointment, we will prepare the teeth on either side of the gap and take impressions of the teeth. The construction of the bridge must be very precise to ensure that it properly matches opposing teeth. The impressions will be sent to the lab for construction of the bridge. 1-2 additional appointments will be required for precise placement and follow-up.
