Dental Bridges What to Expect
After a thorough oral health exam, Dr. Banks will determine if a bridge is the best missing tooth replacement for your lifestyle, cosmetic goals, and budget. Dental bridges are a more cost-effective replacement option and can help restore function and esthetics to a patient’s smile in just a few visits to our Inwood, WV dentist office.
Dr. Banks will begin your procedure by shaving down the adjacent teeth. These teeth will be reduced in size to make room for the bridge and will be used to secure the restoration. Once the teeth are prepared molds will be taken of the area and sent to a dental lab for fabrication of your custom bridge.
Once prepared, Dr. Banks will fit the bridge to your smile. We will ensure that you feel completely satisfied with the aesthetic result before you leave our office. If you are unhappy, we will make adjustments to your restoration.
