Temporary Dental Bridge

    dental bridge
  • A bridge, also known as a fixed partial denture, is a dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth by joining permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants.
  • (Dental Bridges) are used to span, or bridge a gap (missing teeth) between healthy teeth. Same as with crowns, teeth on either side of the empty space are reshaped and reduced in size. The two shaped teeth then act as anchors, or abutments.
  • Lasting for only a limited period of time; not permanent
  • irregular: lacking continuity or regularity; "an irregular worker"; "employed on a temporary basis"
  • impermanent: not permanent; not lasting; "politics is an impermanent factor of life"- James Thurber; "impermanent palm cottages"; "a temperary arrangement"; "temporary housing"
  • temp: a worker (especially in an office) hired on a temporary basis

here's the final temporary bridge with the open margins filled in. maybe not perfectly so, but in a real person's mouth the cement will fill in the gap. even if the cement may possible erode a bit, it's a temporary bridge--the final restoration in metal/porcelain will fit better than this.
