The process of placing dental bridges
We’ll always start treatment with a consultation to determine whether dental bridges are the most appropriate to replace your worn or missing teeth. After that, dental bridges can be placed over two appointments:
▸ Appointment 1:
During the first appointment, we’ll trim the teeth on either side of the gap under a local anaesthetic, so they are ready to accommodate their crowns. Next, we’ll take a mould of your teeth, which is used by our technicians to make your bridge. Finally, we fit a temporary bridge and determine the desired colour of your new one.
▸ Appointment 2:
During the second appointment we’ll remove the temporary bridge and place your new one. If we are happy with the fit and colour, we’ll cement your new dental bridge into place and your smile is restored!
