Bridges

Bridges
Dental bridges are an effective and natural-looking way to replace one or more missing teeth. They are usually made from a combination of porcelain and precious metals, and consist of two crowns, positioned either side of a false tooth, which slot over the teeth adjacent to a gap (the abutment teeth). As well as being fixed over natural teeth, they can also be supported by dental implants.

The most obvious benefit of bridges is the way they restore an incomplete smile but they can also improve eating, speaking, your ‘bite’ and the contours of your face, and they can help keep your existing teeth firmly in place.

Bridges that use crowns

If you need to replace a single tooth, or two teeth at the end of an arch, we can use your natural teeth to support the bridge. We first assess the natural teeth, making sure they are healthy enough to provide adequate support. These teeth are known as abutment teeth and are prepared using local anaesthetic. Once they are prepared and dried, we take impressions which are taken to the lab. We use a TRIOS system to take scans without needing to use messy moulds.

These scans are taken to the lab where your bridge is made. In the time it takes to have your bridge created, we provide you with a temporary bridge.

We invite you back for your fitting where we insert your new bridge and fit it in place with dental cement.

Implant retained bridges

For more than one missing tooth, we can use implants to support a bridge, replacing a row of teeth. Implants allow us to replace teeth without needing to touch your natural teeth.
