Bridges

This involves replacing a missing tooth/teeth by anchorage on one or more neighbouring teeth. Crowns are placed on the neighbouring teeth which support a fake tooth/teeth in the gap. This can be made from porcelain and/or metal.

This procedure usually requires 2 sessions.

The first session involves preparation of the teeth and a mould is taken of this preparation. A temporary bridge is placed.

The 2nd session involves removal of the temporary bridge. The permanent bridge is cemented with a strong glue.
