How can we help?

Do you have a missing tooth? Are you looking for an affordable, aesthetically-pleasing solution? If so, allow us to tell you all about our brilliant dental bridges.

What exactly is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is a type of restoration, which is used to literally bridge the gap between the teeth when a tooth has been lost. The aim is to fill the space with a natural-looking tooth replacement. There are different types of bridge available, but the most common kind is a traditional fixed bridge. This type of bridge comprises a false tooth, which is fused to a crown on both sides. Bridges are usually crafted using ceramics, such as porcelain, for a flawless aesthetic. Once your bridge is in place, you won’t be able to tell the difference between your natural teeth and the new replacement.

How is a bridge fitted?

Dental bridges can usually be fitted in two sessions, which take place 2 weeks apart. The first appointment is used to create a mould of the teeth, which is used to design and fabricate your bespoke bridge. The second session is used to fit the bridge and secure it in place.

The benefits of bridges

Dental bridges offer a host of benefits to patients who have lost a tooth through injury, trauma or disease. These include:

  • Speed of treatment
  • Natural-looking aesthetics
  • Simple procedure
  • Results lasting up to 15 years
  • Improved dental health and oral function

What are the alternatives?

If you have missing teeth, you may be advised to explore options including dental bridges, dentures and dental implants. If you’d like advice about which treatment to choose, our experienced dentists will be happy to help!
