Dental bridges, on the other hand, is an excellent option for patients suffering from tooth loss with the sturdy solution they have been looking for! Dr. Kane will fit customized crowns on the abutment teeth, or the two teeth on each side of the gap, to anchor the bridge appliance. He will then take an impression of the space, and submit specifications to the dental lab. While you wait for your permanent replacement, you will be fitted with a temporary bridge. Once your hand-crafted teeth have arrived back in our office, the permanent bridge will be cemented in place. You will care for your new teeth as you would your natural teeth.
