Dental Bridges

A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of a gap and a false tooth/teeth in between.

A bridge helps to strengthen the prepared teeth and makes chewing and eating easier because they are fixed and can't come out. Bridges are usually made of a precious metal base, which gives them a solid structure and makes them hard-wearing.

Some bridges can also be fixed to your jaw with dental implants, if you have several teeth next to each other that are missing.

Bridges can help:
  • Restore your smile
  • Restore your ability to properly chew and speak
  • Maintain the shape of your face
  • Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position

Once your bridge is fitted, a careful daily hygiene regime will prevent bad breath and build-up of plaque. Regular trips to the hygienist will also ensure your plaque levels are kept under control.
