Accent Smile Center explains the steps taken to get porcelain bridges
Once you found an experienced dentist in cosmetic dentistry like Dr. Gatgens, you’ll have your teeth prepared for the porcelain bridges. This can involve recontouring teeth which means a portion of your tooth enamel will be removed so there’s room for a crown to be placed over.
Next, teeth impressions are taken to serve as a model for the porcelain bridge and other elements. Impressions are sent to the dental lab and in your second dentist visit, a new porcelain bridge will be adjusted so you get a perfect fit. It can take a few visits till you feel comfortable with the fit, that’s why it’s really important to work with a cosmetic dentistry pro.
While your impressions are at the dental lab, your dentist will affix temporary bridges so your exposed teeth and gums are protected.
