So you’ve been told that a dental bridge would be the ideal solution to restore your smile. Now what?
To get a dental bridge in Vancouver WA, you will need to make a few visits to the dentist to complete the process. During your initial visit to the dentist to get the process started, the abutment teeth will be prepared. To do this, your dentist will remove a portion of enamel from your teeth so that a crown can be placed on them. Once this is done, your dentist will then make impressions of your teeth to serve as the model for the bridge, crowns, and pontic (false tooth) to be created. You will likely receive a temporary bridge from your dentist to wear at this time so that your gums and teeth will stay protected.
Once the dental bridge is ready, you will return to the dentist to have it fit and adjusted to your mouth and bite. It can sometimes take a few visits to the dentist for adjustments to the fit of the metal frame to get your bite just right. In the event that you have a fixed dental bridge, your dentist will probably temporarily cement it in place and ask you to return in a few weeks to confirm that it fits properly.
