Understanding the Procedure
Dental bridges often require at least two office visits. During the consultation, the two anchoring teeth are filed and buffed to allow space for the crowns. A mold is then made of the site and is sent to a dental laboratory where the bridges are designed. Temporary bridges that can be worn for several weeks will be placed in the patient’s mouth while the permanent ones are being completed.
Dr. Clint Newman provides dental bridges to replace missing teeth and restore your confidence.
When the dental bridges arrive at our Nashville office, we will schedule your second visit during which the permanent dental bridges will be adjusted to fit perfectly then cemented to ensure a comfortable fit. Depending on the case, Dr. Newman can temporary cement the bridges to allow your teeth and tissue time to adjust to the new bridge and the bridges can be permanently cemented at a later time.
