If you want to replace your missing teeth for many years to come, then a dental bridge is a great option for you! It can replace your missing teeth and give you long-term results without the need for surgery.

The treatment involved in placing a dental bridge is easy and painless. It involves the following three steps:

Step 1: First, your dentist will numb the neighboring teeth with a local anesthetic. Then, they will prepare the teeth for the bridge by trimming the outer layers of the enamel. This will make room for the dental crowns that make up the bridge.

Step 2: Once your teeth are the right size and shape, your dentist will take an impression of those teeth and will send that impression to the dental lab where your bridge will be created. While you wait, you will be given a temporary bridge so you can chew, speak, and smile normally.

Step 3: When your bridge is ready, you will come back into our office for a second appointment. During this visit, your dentist will remove your temporary bridge and will cement your new bridge into place.

Once you complete the treatment, you will have the complete smile you’re looking for!
