Bridges: Missing Teeth Replacements

If you require a more extensive restoration than a crown or have more than one tooth that needs to be repaired, a good solution is a bridge.

Here is how bridges work:

  • Bridges are usually made of a precious metal base, which gives them a solid structure and makes them hard-wearing. If you need a bridge in your smile line, porcelain is usually added to the base to make it look more like real teeth.
  • A bridge helps to strengthen the prepared teeth and makes chewing and eating easier because they are fixed and can’t come out.
  • Some bridges can also be fixed to your jaw with dental implants, if you have several teeth next to each other that are missing.

Once you have a bridge fitted, you will have to take extra care during your daily hygiene regime to ensure it stays plaque free and does not cause bad breath.

Life benefits:

  • A sturdy way to restore several teeth in a row
  • Beautiful, natural-looking restoration
  • Restores the ability to chew and eat as before
