A Dental Bridge Solution Is Easier To Swallow

Losing a tooth or multiple teeth can be daunting, but we have solutions, which eradicate any anxieties and enable you to enjoy a healthy, natural looking smile. One of our most popular options for replacing a missing tooth is a dental bridge.
With dental bridges, we are able to fill gaps in the smile quickly, painlessly and with minimal hassle.
What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is a tooth replacement prosthesis, which is designed to bridge the gap between two teeth when a tooth has been lost. The most common type of bridge is a traditional fixed bridge, which consists of a false tooth, which is fused to a crown on each side of the gap. The tooth is usually supported by healthy teeth on both sides of the gap; however, it is also possible to fit a bridge and fuse it onto teeth on one side of the gap only; this type of bridge is known as a cantilever bridge.
Bridges are often made from ceramics, but they can also be made from metals. Many of our patients choose to have ceramic ridges, as they produce natural looking aesthetics and they blend in with the rest of the natural teeth.
Bridges are a convenient, affordable and hassle-free solution, as treatment usually only involves two sessions and the procedure is pain-free. Bridges do not last as long as dental implants, but they should last for around 10-15 years. Once you have a dental bridge, your smile will look more attractive and healthier and you can enjoy greater confidence; there is also a lower risk of dental disease and you will be able to use the tooth to chew and bite.
