If you have a missing tooth, your dentist can “bridge” the gap using a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a false tooth (called a pontic) held in place with crowns on the adjacent natural teeth to form a bridge over the gap. This bridge is designed to function just like one of your natural teeth.
Since our team stays up to date on the best way to insert dental bridges, you will be in good hands here at Platinum Dental Provo. Schedule your appointment today!
What is the process for getting a dental bridge?
You’ll need to schedule two appointments for a dental bridge. At the first appointment, you will have crowns fitted and measurements taken for the dental bridge. You will also receive a temporary bridge while the permanent one is created.
At the second appointment, the temporary bridge is removed and the permanent bridge is fixed in place. You may have to schedule follow-up appointments to check the fitting and make adjustments if needed.
