If you need dental implants, surgery will be required. Otherwise, a dental bridge procedure takes two appointments to complete.
During the first visit, your dentist will file down the adjacent teeth to prepare them for the crowns. Next, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth. This will be used to create a custom bridge. In the meantime, you’ll be fitted with a temporary bridge to protect the filed teeth.
During the second visit, your dentist will replace the temporary bridge with the permanent prosthesis by cementing the crowns to your filed teeth or dental implants.
