Find out more about dental bridges from London SE1 dentist.

12 / 09 / 2012

Missing teeth and large gaps can sap away your self-esteem and morale. Your London SE1 dentist will be able to give you back your confidence through install dental bridges into the gap. Bridges look and feel real and return full function back to your mouth. Dental bridges are a secure and durable solution for one or two missing teeth. For larger numbers of missing teeth your dentist may recommend dental implants, dentures or other solutions.

The structure of dental bridges means that they need at least one strong, healthy tooth adjacent on which to anchor the bridge. When a single tooth is missing the standard procedure for dental bridges is to file down the healthy teeth on either side so as to allow crowns to be securely placed on top. The two crowns are then permanently bonded on either side of a false tooth. Once the crowns have been secured into place the false tooth is firmly held into place by the adjacent teeth. This structure creates a very firm and secure form which is durable and long lasting. If there are not adjacent healthy teeth on both sides, or you do not wish your teeth to be filled down, there is an alternative form of bridge which uses tiny metal prongs to bond on to a single adjacent tooth.

The crowns and false tooth of a dental bridge are normally covered in a layer of porcelain. This material is hard and natural-looking, and will blend in with the rest of your teeth. The procedure will take several visits to the dentist. They will need to form moulds and adjust the fitting to make sure it is perfectly sized for your teeth. But once complete you will feel like you have a full set of teeth, without the need of implants or the maintenance needs of dentures.
