Dental Bridges

You are here:

Improve your smile
and your confidence

Missing teeth can really affect your appearance and self-confidence. You might want to have them replaced for aesthetic reasons, or you might find that your bite is affected

Although dental implants are the best option to replace missing teeth, they are not always appropriate. If you still want a fixed option then dental bridges may be the next best alternative.

What are bridges?

A dental bridge is a false tooth or teeth fixed into place permanently by securing them onto the adjacent teeth.

There are two main types of dental bridges:

Conventional bridge
This is where teeth on either side of the gap are crowned, and the teeth are all joined together.
The good thing about this option is that these types of bridges generally last for a long time and they are fixed in place. You will need to have some work carried out on the adjacent teeth, which will often need grinding down in order secure the bridge. If the teeth on either side are crowned already, then this option may be favourable.
Adhesive bridge
This is when the false tooth is stuck onto one or two of the adjacent teeth. The great thing about this option is that it is a simple procedure, which means that the teeth don’t need grinding down as they do with a conventional bridge. This type of bridge generally won’t last as long and it needs to be used in the right circumstances – it will work well on front teeth, but not as well on back teeth due to increased biting pressure.

If you are interested in dental bridges it is always best to come in for a full examination so we can discuss all your options. We will then formulate a treatment plan that best suits your needs.
