Bridges are usually made of porcelain fused to high content gold, or on occasions just porcelain.

Bridges from a holistic dentist in kingsburywhat will my dentist do?

There are several stages in making a bridge.

The dentist uses soft, mouldable material to take impressions of your mouth. A dental technician makes exact plaster models of your upper and lower teeth and gums, which show how your teeth bite together

The teeth which will support the bridge are prepared.

Another impression is taken of the teeth and the dental technician uses this to make the bridge. A plastic temporary bridge or temporary crowns may be fitted in the meantime.

At the next visit, the dentist will check that the bridge fits, makes any minor adjustments and then cements the bridge temporarily. At the final appointment the bridge is cemented with permanent cement. Your dentist will show you the best way of keeping the new bridge clean
