What Are Dental Bridges, Exactly?
Typically, a dental bridge is composed of two or more crowns fused together, then cemented to surrounding teeth to hold it in place. A crown is a functional, cosmetic piece that looks and feels like a natural tooth.
Dental bridges offer a long term solution, but they are not permanent. Usually, bridges need to be replaced or adjusted by a dental professional every five to seven years.
How the Procedure Works
Receiving a dental bridge takes one to two visits, depending on your needs. Surrounding teeth need to be prepared to be used as abutments, or support for the bridge. Preparation often means the removal of some enamel and reshaping to fit the bridge. Impressions of the area are made, and the bridge is crafted to meet the specific dimensions. The bridge is then tried in, adjusted if necessary and cemented.
