In cases where more than one tooth is missing or when damage is too extensive for repair with a crown, bridges are an alternative solution.

Bridges are usually made from a precious metal base, making them exceptionally robust and hard-wearing, giving you a long-lasting stunning smile.

A lifelike porcelain restoration, which looks, feels and acts just like a natural tooth, is set into the base. The bridge – affixed to the teeth on either side of the gap or a dental implant – keeps the restoration permanently and securely attached, making chewing and eating easy.

Bridges do more than just provide aesthetic value. As well as looking good, your bridge will keep your whole smile stable and secure. Bridges can improve functionality as well as enhance the look of your smile.

When you’re missing a tooth, there’s a good chance that the rest of your teeth will begin to move to fill that gap gradually. This movement can cause uneven alignment and even more gaps elsewhere.

How does a bridge work for teeth?

We’ll use an artificial tooth to fill the gap left behind by your missing tooth. The artificial tooth will have crowns attached to either side to fit onto the neighbouring teeth to hold it firmly in place. You can also have more than one artificial tooth replacement if you have a few teeth missing.

How long does it take to get used to a dental bridge?

It usually only takes patients around two weeks to get used to their new dental bridge. You’ll notice the benefits of it straight away, and your comfort will only improve with each day.
