What are dental bridges?
How do dental bridges work?
Your comfort during the procedure is an important factor. Dr. Neilson will administer a local anesthetic to numb the area. If the patient requires additional peace of mind, dental sedation is available. Both of these will allow you to remain comfortable throughout the procedure.
Dr. Neilson will prepare the abutment teeth by recontouring them to accommodate the crowns. He will then create impressions of the teeth and send them to our trusted dental lab technicians. Once your final dental bridge is ready, Dr. Neilson will check the fit to ensure that everything is in the right place. He will then use an adhesive to permanently cement your dental bridge.
Enjoy your smile!
Getting used to your dental bridge should only take a few days. You should eat soft food for the day or two after your procedure. Within a week, you will return to eating all of your favorites, speaking with ease, and smiling with confidence.
