Dental bridges are a permanent solution to replacing a missing tooth or multiple teeth. A bridge is compromised of multiple crowns, usually three, and sometimes more, that are fused together.
The bridge appliance is made up of two crowns and a false tooth that is fused between them. To prepare the site, the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth are precisely shaped and fitted with crowns, and an impression is taken and sent to the dental laboratory.
A strong temporary, tooth-colored bridge is fabricated in the office that matches the size and color of your existing teeth, and you will wear this until your permanent bridge arrives. Then Dr. Naidu will remove the temporary bridge and cement the bridge in permanently.
This will then restore function and allow you to chew food more efficiently and give you the cosmetic benefit of replacing a missing tooth.
