The Dental Bridge Placement Process

If you’re interested in knowing more about the treatment process involved in placing a dental bridge, our Smiles Dental team is more than happy to help you!

The process of placing a dental bridge in Woodburn, Oregon, is simple and easy. It involves the following three steps:

-Step 1: First, your dentist will need to prepare the anchoring teeth by trimming a portion of their enamel. This will help the bridge fit securely into place.

-Step 2: Once the teeth are the correct size and shape, your dentist will make impressions of those teeth and will send the impressions to a dental lab. At this time, the technicians will create your dental bridge and you will be given a temporary bridge to wear in the meantime.

-Step 3: When your bridge is ready, your dentist will remove your temporary bridge and will check the fit, appearance, and size of your new bridge. If it exceeds expectations, your dentist will permanently cement it into place.
