Before and after tooth replacement in Morganton, NC
The dentist will also examine your mouth and missing tooth or teeth to determine what the best method of treatment will be. Once we have a better idea of what needs to be done, we will schedule an appointment for the dental bridges procedure.

The Procedure

During your first appointment, the dentist will prepare your mouth by creating room for the crown and taking impressions of your teeth. You will also be given a temporary bridge that will protect your teeth and gums while your permanent dental bridge gets made.
On your second visit, the dentist will replace the temporary dental bridge with the metal or porcelain one. You may need multiple appointments to find the right fit. Once you have found the right fit, the dentist will cement your dental bridge into place.
