Closing the Gap
Don has been coming to our office for many years before he decided that he wanted to close the big gap between his two front teeth. He had been thinking about this for many years. When one of his teeth broke and needed to be extracted, he had the opportunity to close the large gap with a permanent all-porcelain bridge. Since the permanent treatment was completed, Don smiles all the time. He loves his new smile! This treatment was completed in just three short visits. On the first visit, we took out the bad tooth and made him a temporary bridge that looked just like his natural teeth. After the area with the tooth extraction had healed, an impression was taken of the teeth so that the permanent porcelain bridge could be fabricated. The final bridge was inserted after about eight weeks from the time that we started the treatment.
