A dental bridge is a simple, long-lasting and effective solution to replace missing teeth.

A dental bridge replaces one or more missing teeth. And as the name suggests, the bridge takes support from at least one existing tooth, next to the gap.

A bridge uses the strength and integrity of teeth next to the gap for support. It is matched to the appearance of your existing teeth to give a natural appearance.  A bridge treatment is a long-lasting solution to improve eating comfort and restore a confident smile. Ceramic bridges are popular for their natural tooth colour appearance.

Where adjacent teeth are damaged or have previously been restored, your dentist will consider other missing teeth treatment options.

What is a dental bridge treatment?

The treatment is normally completed over two appointments. If a bridge is an appropriate treatment option, Your dentist will begin your dental bridge treatment by preparing the supporting teeth adjacent to the gap. These teeth will be fitted with crowns which will support the bridge.

Using impressions of your teeth, our dental laboratory will then create custom-made replacement teeth. These replicates the shape and colour of your missing teeth. At your second  visit the bridge will be checked, tried in and fitted as long as you and your dentist are happy.

How long does a bridge last?

With a good dental regime and care, dental bridges can last many years as they are a strong and durable replacement for lost teeth. Your dentist will advise on how to take care of your bridge.
