Bridges provided by Vanna Theodora
A bridge is a fixed replacement for a missing tooth or teeththat fill the space where one or more teeth are missing. The bridge restores your bite and helps keep the natural shape of your face. It's made by taking an impression of the surrounding teeth, which will eventually support the bridge.
Placing a bridge usually takes more than one dental visit. On the first visit, the dentist prepares the teeth on both sides of the gap in order to attach the bridge to these teeth.
Then takes an impression or an image of your teeth and the space and sends it to a dental laboratory. Technicians at the lab make the bridge. Your dentist will place a temporary bridge to protect your prepared teeth while you are waiting for the permanent bridge.When the permanent bridge is ready, the dentist fits, adjusts and cements the bridge to the prepared teeth.
