If you’ve got a missing tooth, then a bridge might be just what you need. At Keys Dental, we begin by getting the teeth either side of your missing tooth ready for crowns. These teeth will act as support for your new artificial tooth that goes between them. Together, the crowns and artificial tooth between them form the complete bridge.
We take an impression of the area so we can build a perfectly snug matching bridge for you. But before your first appointment is done, we’ll also pop in the temporary bridge. This helps protect and minimise any movement from the surrounding teeth. At this point, you’re done with your first visit and you’re good to go!
In your second appointment, we will cement your new flashy permanent bridge into place and have you grinning from ear to ear in about 30 minutes. Yes, it’s that quick. But if you look after your new smile with good oral hygiene at home and follow up with regular hygiene appointments (once every six months), then your new bridge could last a lifetime.
