How are crowns and bridges made?
If you're having a crown or bridge at Bracken Ridge Dental, our dentists will first prepare any teeth for crowns by removing some of the outer enamel. We'll then take impressions of your teeth that will be used to design your custom restorations out of porcelain or other materials.
We'll fit a temporary crown or bridge to maintain your smile while your custom crowns and bridges are being manufactured. When these are ready, we'll check that they fit or make any adjustments required before we cement them to your teeth.
If you're having a tooth extracted, we can fit a temporary bridge or denture to fill the gap while your gum is healing before creating your permanent bridge.
