Bridges are used to replace a missing tooth. The two posts on either side have to be prepared cut down in size enough to fit a crown on each one. Models are being made for the lab to fabricate the restoration. In the meantime if possible and necessary the prepared teeth and the gap are being temporarily covered until the final restoration is ready. The bridge is made to blend in with the natural look of the patients teeth and after thorough examination of the fit and the shade is cemented with a final cement.
