You and your dentist will examine the best choices for your particular case. The “fixed bridge” is the most popular type, and It is enamel fused to metal.

Process of placing a fixed dental bridge
Getting a bridge usually requires two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the dentist will prepare the two anchoring teeth by removing a portion of enamel to allow for a crown.
Next, we will take an exact impression of the teeth, which will be sent to the dental laboratory where the bridge will fabricate. Besides, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for several weeks until your next appointment.
At the second visit, Your permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit. Occasionally your dentist may only temporarily cement the bridge, allowing your teeth and tissue time to get used to the new bridge. The new bridge will be permanently cemented at a later time.
You will receive care instructions after the procedure. Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new permanent bridge.
