Bridges

A fixed replacement for missing teeth

These usually consist of a false tooth positioned between two crowns and can help fill the gaps left by one or more missing teeth. Made from porcelain-metal or all-ceramic, they can also be supported by dental implants, offering a predictable solution for missing teeth.

What is the treatment process?

Step One
We prepare the teeth either side of the gap by removing a layer of hard tooth tissue, which makes room for the metal-ceramic material.

Step Two
We take impressions, so the bridge can be tailored to fit. While we wait for this to be produced, the prepared teeth are protected with a temporary restoration.

Step Three
When the bridge has been fabricated by our skilled technicians, we check it for fit and quality, before fixing it firmly in position with dental cement.

What are the plus points?

What else do I need to know?

There are a variety of bridge types, including traditional bridges incorporating two crowns, cantilever bridges for when only one natural tooth is used to support the bridge, or resin-bonded bridges, which are fixed to supporting teeth with metal or ceramic wings.

Bridges last longer if they are well-maintained, so it’s important to clean your bridge, the area below the false tooth and the supporting teeth. The main disadvantage of bridges is that they often involve irreversible long-term damage to supporting teeth.
