You will usually need to come for two appointments, and it is very similar to having a crown. At the first appointment, the teeth will need to be prepared by taking off some existing tooth to make it smaller, allowing the crown to sit on top. We will take special impression moulds that allow us to record your bite and tooth position, which is sent off to the technician to be made. We will decide on a shade you are happy with to ensure it matches the natural tooth as closely as possible. A temporary crown will be placed on the natural tooth that has been altered.
In the second appointment, the temporary crown will be removed, and the bridge will be cemented in with a special adhesive, once you are happy with the look. Your bite will be checked and slightly adjusted if needed.
