With our innovative tooth replacement treatments, we are able to prevent these problems and enable you to enjoy a beautiful, functional smile.
About dental bridges
Dental bridges are restorations, which are designed to replace missing teeth by literally bridging the gap between two teeth when the middle tooth is missing. The most common type of bridge is a traditional fixed bridge, which comprises of a false tooth and two crowns; the false tooth is held in place by a crown on each side.
Dental bridges are often made from ceramic for a natural aesthetic, but they can also be made from metal. We recommend porcelain bridges because they are strong and durable and they match the colour of natural teeth so you can’t tell the difference between the bridge and the rest of the teeth.
Dental bridge treatment
Dental bridge treatment is quick, simple and painless. Before treatment begins, we will create an impression of your teeth and this will be used to create your bespoke restoration by highly trained dental technicians. We will also talk you through the process and answer any questions you have. Once your bridge has been crafted, we can then fit it. Fitting the bridge is not painful and we will simply place it in the relevant position and then secure it firmly. Once it is in place, it can only be removed by your dentist. Bridges should last around 10-15 years if they are well looked-after.
