Dental bridges are beneficial dental restorations that can finally replace your missing teeth and give you the strong, beautiful, and healthy smile you deserve.
If you’re about to repair your smile with a dental bridge, our Smiley Dental Arlington team is more than happy to help you prepare for your appointment! When you come into our office and meet with us, you can expect the following steps:
-Step 1: Your dentist will first prepare the teeth that are anchoring the bridge by trimming their enamel. This is necessary because it will make room for the dental crowns that make up the bridge.
-Step 2: Once the anchoring teeth are the correct size and shape, your dentist will make impressions of those teeth and will send those impressions to a dental lab. At this time, the technicians will create a dental bridge that is perfect for your smile. While you wait, you will be given a temporary bridge.
-Step 3: When your bridge is ready, your dentist will check its size, fit, and appearance. If it exceeds expectations, the temporary bridge will be removed and the permanent bridge will be cemented into place.
