Bridges

Bridges

A natural-looking dental bridge can successfully fill in gaps left by missing teeth and help restore your confidence.

Conventional bridges consist of a false tooth usually positioned between two crowns which slot over the adjacent teeth either side of a gap (known as abutment teeth).

They are usually made from porcelain fused to a metal or ceramic base to offer a blend of strength and good looks.

Bridges not only fill in spaces in your smile, they also help with improving your facial contours, your bite and prevent your teeth from shifting.

As well as traditional bridges featuring crowns and a false tooth in between, there are also cantilever bridges for cases where there are teeth on only one side of the gap, and Maryland adhesive bridges which are attached to existing teeth with metal or ceramic wings.

Aftercare

Good oral hygiene is essential to ensure the longevity of your bridge. It is especially important to clean under the false tooth as well as brushing and flossing regularly.

If bridges are well looked after, and that includes keeping the surrounding teeth healthy so they can continue to provide a solid foundation, they should last for over ten years.
