Do you have a missing tooth? Dr. Don Harvey might suggest a dental bridge. Here’s why:

First of all, what is a dental bridge? It’s a fake tooth with two crowns on either side that go over the top of the teeth. A bridge is best matched for those with weak teeth. The crowns will provide the support necessary for daily activities.

The procedure for a dental bridge can vary depending on your needs, but the following paragraphs should give you an idea of what it’s like:

At your first appointment, Dr. Don Harvey will apply numbing and remove some of the enamel structure to prepare them for the dental crowns. Then he will make an impression of your mouth. The dental lab will use the mold to form your custom-made dental bridge. Dr. Don Harvey might fit a temporary bridge over the gap to help you in the meantime.

When the permanent bridge is done, Don Harvey Dental will bring you back in to install it and make sure there are no problems. The procedure for a fixed bridge might take some time to be completed. There might need to be a follow-up visit.
