Dental Bridges Aberdeen dentist

If you are planning to replace a missing tooth, the more popular method would be with a dental bridge instead of dentures or a dental implant. A dental bridge is actually a false tooth that will be ‘bridged’ between two other teeth where the gap is. When you visit your Aberdeen dentist, he will first administer local anesthesia so that he can chip away a small portion of the two teeth in order to make space for the new crown. A mold is then made with‘dental putty’ and sent to the local Aberdeen dental laboratory to make the crown and bridge. Until then temporary bridge will be placed. On your next visit to the dentist, the temporary bridge will be replaced with the permanent bridge and crown. Once your Aberdeen dentist is satisfied with the colour and checks the effectiveness of your bite as well as the fitting, he will then cement the bridge to the surrounding teeth. A good quality bridge, if well taken care of can last up to 10 years.
