Bridges are indicated as a fixed non-removable option to replace missing tooth/teeth. The procedure is similar to a crown procedure and is usually completed in 2-3 visits. The first visit involves reduction of tooth structure followed by a digital impression and the placement of a temporary bridge—which is replaced by a permanent bridge on the second visit.

The Plush Dentistry approach is to recommend an implant when we feel the adjacent teeth are healthy and a bridge may involve unnecessary reduction of healthy tooth structure.
