Who Is a Good Candidate for Same-Day Bridges?
Common Dental Problems That
Same-Day Bridges Can Address
This condition results from an extraction, an accident, or tooth decay. Same-day bridges can help replace your missing teeth quickly, so you can confidently go about your daily activities.
Tooth loss can cause the remaining teeth to shift towards the gap. This may lead to bite problems and eating and speaking difficulties. A dental bridge will help keep your teeth in their proper position.

ABOUT Same-Day Bridges
The same-day dental bridge technique is pretty similar to that of a same-day dental crown. Your bridge dentist will numb the area before preparing the abutment teeth. Once the abutment teeth are prepared, digital scans of your mouth are taken. These images will be used to create your same-day bridge, which will be ready within an hour or so. Your dentist will check the bridge for fit and colour before cementing it.
The entire treatment time may take 2 to 3 hours, which means you only have to wait at the dental clinic for a few hours and leave with a brand-new smile.
There are four types of dental bridges, and the type used will depend on the location of the missing tooth or teeth and the number of teeth involved. These include cantilever, traditional, resin-bonded, and implant-supported bridges. While the method of attaching the bridge is similar, the type of bridge will determine how it is attached.
Cantilever bridges are usually used when a tooth is on only one side of the gap. At your appointment, your bridge dentist attaches the artificial tooth to the neighbouring teeth on just one side. Traditional bridges involve creating a crown for the tooth on either side of the gap, with a false tooth in between. Resin-retained bridges usually involve attaching an artificial tooth to metal bands bonded to your existing teeth. Implant bridges are attached to dental implants, which are titanium posts surgically placed in the jawbone.
