What Is the Process for Getting a Dental Bridge?

During the first visit, the anchor teeth are shaped.  The anchor teeth are the 2 teeth on either side of the missing tooth or teeth.  A portion of the teeth are removed to allow room for the bridge to be placed.  Next, molds of the teeth are made.  The molds will be turned into models from which the bridge will be made by a professional dental lab.  Dr. Herget will make temporary crowns to protect the shaped anchor teeth while the bridge is being made. During the second visit, your temporary crowns will be removed and the new porcelain fused-to-metal bridge will be checked and adjusted to achieve a proper fit.  Finally the bridge will be permanently cemented over the anchor teeth.
