A dental bridge “bridges” the gap where a tooth has fallen out or been extracted. A replacement tooth is fixed to the natural teeth at either side of the gap.
A dental bridge gives such a comfortable, natural result, that you forget you have missing teeth. It is long-lasting, with good dental hygiene, and with careful colour-matching can give a great aesthetic appearance to your teeth.
Firstly, the teeth that will be used to support the bridge are prepared – these may need building up or shaping down. An impression will be taken of your teeth, which is sent to our dental technician who creates the bridge.
Colour matching is carried out, to ensure that the new tooth will blend seamlessly with its neighbours. While the bridge is being made, we’ll fit you with a temporary one.
Finally, the permanent bridge will be bonded into place, and you’ll have a great set of natural-looking teeth, which should last for many years.
