Crowns & Bridges Procedure

In case of dental bridge problems, a bridge in teeth is made out by reducing the size of either side of adjacent teeth, and then putting an artificial tooth, made out of porcelain or composite resin. In layman’s language, this restorative tooth is called the dummy tooth. The entire process of Bridging involves three steps: tooth preparation, restoration fabrication and post – restoration treatment.
