Fixed bridges help to restore the fullness and beauty of your smile if you’re missing teeth. They are cemented permanently into your mouth, so they are long-lasting and highly durable. For this reason, many patients are advised to have a fixed bridge placed to obtain a full smile.
What to expect with the procedure
The dental bridge procedure is done quickly and easily right in the office. First, the two surrounding teeth are filed down to make room for the crowns that will hold the bridge. Next, impressions or 3-D renderings are made, which will create the crowns and bridge. Once the permanent bridge is created for you, it will be cemented in place, where the crowns will fit over the teeth that have been filed down and the bridge gaps the space in between them for long-lasting durability.
