Your dentist will create the two abutments by removing the enamel layer of each tooth. The abutment left behind is essentially the dentin layer of each tooth surrounding the pulp and root.
Your dentist will then cast a detailed impression of the area and the corresponding teeth in your bite pattern. This will be sent to a professional dental lab where your new bridge will be made. Temporary crowns will then be cemented over each abutment to protect it until your new bridge is ready.
We will call you to schedule a brief second appointment when the bridge is ready. Your dentist will remove the temporary crowns and cement your new bridge into place over the abutments.
If you have a severely damaged tooth, you should not delay in calling 303-935-3574 to have it treated at Belmar Smiles.
