A dental bridge is one method to fill a gap created by a missing tooth (or teeth). A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap. The false tooth is called pontic and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.
 First Visit 
The natural teeth adjacent to the missing gap are reshaped to receive the dental bridge. Records are taken and approved with the patient to determine the color, bite, length and shape of the bridge. An impression of your teeth are made and sent to a dental lab where the individualized bridge is fabricated. A temporary bridge is placed on to protect the exposed teeth and gums while the permanent bridge is made.
 
 
 
 
 
  Second Visit 
The temporary bridge is removed. The new permanent bridge will be checked and adjusted, as necessary, to achieve a proper fit. A quality assurance check is done for any re-adjustments of the dental bridge. Multiple visits may be required to check the fit of the metal framework and bite. This is dependent on each individual's case. The permanent bridge is fitted and cemented into place on the teeth.
