Cutting Edge Technology
Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth and provide a beautiful, cosmetic and quick result. New technology means even quite large gaps can be filled, giving high-strength, metal-free, cosmetic results. With bridgework, it is frequently possible to give you a complete smile within a few days.
Bridges can reduce your risk of gum disease, help correct some bite issues, prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position and even improve your speech. Bridges require your commitment to serious oral hygiene, but will last as many as ten years or more.
A bridge is made up of two or more crowns that fit to teeth on either side of the gap, which serve as anchors, along with a false tooth in-between. A bridge will support the false tooth or teeth, and reduce the susceptibility of remaining teeth to decay and gum disease.
Dental Bridges Treatment
Your dentist will examine your teeth and jaw at your first appointment to evaluate the best course of action. If you have strong enough teeth with good bone support then a bridge could be a great option to restore your smile.
An impression will be taken of your mouth, from which a plaster model will be built of your teeth and gums to enable your dentist to understand how your teeth bite together. Your teeth will then be prepared so that the bridge will fit: the teeth either side of the gap need to be reduced in size to fit the fixings and accommodate the bridge comfortably.
A second impression of your teeth is taken and used to build a bridge that looks natural and matches your mouth exactly. The bridge will be made from metal, porcelain or a combination of both, and the replacement tooth that’s fixed between your bridge will be colour-matched to the rest of your teeth. While your bridge is being made, your dentist may fit a temporary bridge or crown to protect the exposed gum and teeth.
By placing crowns on one or both the teeth at either side of the gap and are joined together by placing a false tooth in the space.
This has one or two ‘wings’ that are bonded to the back of the supporting abutment teeth, requiring very little removal of tooth – an ideal option if the teeth are otherwise healthy.

Why Consider Dental Bridges
Why might I need a bridge?
A bridge is a replacement for one or more missing teeth. It is a good solution if you don’t have many missing teeth, or if your missing teeth are all on one side of your mouth. It is important to replace missing teeth to prevent your remaining teeth from drifting into the empty space, as well as to restore the appearance of your smile.
How do I look after my bridge?
You will need to clean your bridge and the false tooth or teeth it supports every day. Your dentist will show you how to use a bridge needle or special floss to ensure your bridge is thoroughly clean. To prevent damage, it’s best to avoid chewing hard foods and ice. By taking good care of your bridge, you can ensure it will last for many years.
How long do dental bridges last?
Dental bridges can last 5 to 15 years. With good oral hygiene and regular check ups, a fixed bridge could easily last over 10 years.
Is it hard to eat with a dental bridge?
Replacing missing teeth with a dental bridge should actually make eating easier. Until you become accustomed to the bridge, eat soft foods that have been cut into small pieces.
Do dental bridges effect speech?
It can be difficult to speak clearly when teeth are missing in the front or anterior areas. Wearing a dental bridge with the anterior teeth in their proper relationship will help you speak properly.
