The sleeves of these prostheses are placed on the so-called abutment teeth. To do this, the adjacent teeth have to be ground down so that they can be inserted into the caps while retaining their full size.
The grinding is carried out in a first appointment, after the diagnosis, where we also choose the colour of the bridge caps, matching them to the colour of our teeth, especially if the bridge is in the smile area. As ground teeth are more sensitive, a temporary bridge will be fitted.
At the second appointment, the definitive bridge will be fitted. And once the specialist has verified the fit, appearance and comfort of the patient, the provisional bridge is cemented.
Once we have verified that the patient has recovered functionality, the bridge is permanently cemented.
