I am getting a 6 unit front bridge (ceramic)done. I have some issues with the temporary. Can these be fixed in the permanent?

Temporary is not right, so what should I expect? #DrSarahThompson
The temporary bridge is just temporary. They are just meant to cover the space without making you look weird for not having teeth there. I usually try to make my temp pretty cosmetic, but many dentists do not, and this is okay. The important thing to know is that you should ask the dentist to let you see the permanent bridge in your mouth when he tries it in at your next appointment. This will let you see if there is anything that you do not agree with or would like adjusted, prior to its permanent placement in your mouth. I hope this helps.

Issues with temporary teeth, can be fixed?
The final bridge will be made with a final impression of your teeth along with a bite impression, once in the lab with the model of your teeth a bridge will be made according to your occlusion and none or minor adjustments will take place at your prosthetic delivery appointment.
Your temporary bridge should feel comfortable for you in all ways. Since it is plastic, issues can be worked out easily. In fact, I consider a bridge like that a "prototype" so that it can be worn and used in order to make sure the final bridge works. A copy can then be made of the "prototype" so the the final bridge is similar to what we already know works properly in the mouth.
