Bridges are ideal for people who don’t like dentures and have only a few teeth missing, but aren’t able or ready to have dental implants.
Bridges are a cost effective alternative to Dental Implants. They can be used to replace missing teeth where the teeth on either side are healthy and strong. A bridge normally consists of a false tooth and a pair of crowns to go over the adjacent supporting teeth. A bridge is normal fitted over two sessions. During the first session, moulds will be taken from the teeth either side of the gap. These supporting teeth will also be prepared to take the bridge, sometimes temporary crowns will be placed over the supporting teeth. During the second session the bridge is permanently attached to the supporting teeth, using a dental cement. During this procedure, small adjustments are made to the bridge to make sure the patient's bite is correct.
Once the procedure is complete the dentist will instruct the patient on how to protect their bridge and how to keep it clean which will ensure it lasts for many years.Contact Us
