Bridges

Dental bridges replace missing teeth by using neighbouring teeth as anchors for replacement teeth.

Dental bridges can replace one or more missing teeth and there are different types depending on your needs, including:

  • Traditional fixed bridge - This type of bridge uses two porcelain crowns, which sit on either side of the gap as an anchor to hold the new false teeth in place.
  • Cantilever bridge - If there is only one tooth able to support a bridge a cantilever bridge is used. The crown will be anchored to one or more teeth on only one side of the gap.
  • Maryland bridge - This type of bridge is used in the replacement of front tooth gaps and when the two teeth on either side are healthy. A plastic tooth fitted to metal bands is used and banded to the back of the healthy teeth on either side of the gap.

What does the procedure involve?

The dentist will numb the area beforehand with an anaesthetic. Once this is done they will prepare the teeth by shaving a small portion away to allow for the crown to be fitted and bridge to be made. Impressions will be made of the teeth before a personal dental crown is made. During your second appointment your crowns and bridge will be fitted and cemented into place.

All crowns and bridges are selected to suit your smile and face perfectly, with a large range of colours available for you to choose from.
