Making a dental bridge starts with the creation of abutments from your existing, natural teeth. The abutments provide attachment points for when your dentist fits you with your new dental bridge. After the abutments are made and ready for placement, we’ll make an impression of your teeth and forward it to our laboratory. Using the impression, a mold is created to make a dental bridge that appears and feels natural while fitting comfortably. The bridge is simply two crowns on both ends of the abutments. The pontic – which is your new tooth – replaces the missing one.
