Front Brakes

I replaced my Toyota Camry 1995 (4 cyl) front brake pads yesterday, and after the job was finished I found that when I press the brake pedal it goes all the way down to the end and in order for my vehicle to stop now I have to pump the pedal several times. Do the brakes need to be bleed and if so, how do I do that. I have changed pads in the past to other kind of cars and this never happened. What did I do wrong?
Please help.

there should be a bleeder screw in the caliper. loosten it and have someone press on the pedal until you get no more air in the fluid coming out. then tighten the screws and test the brakes

should work

If all you did was replace pads it should work.What might have happend is the piston might have come out of the caliper.Bleed system and check back.Also look for leaks around pistons if still bad.You might have messed up a seal for piston
