DENTAL BRIDGES

Bridges can help you to recover the function and appearance of your smile after tooth loss.

Bridges serve as an excellent tooth replacement. A Bridge is essentially a series of artificial teeth or a single tooth, which replaces an area where teeth have been lost from the dental arch.

 

Two Crowns are placed on either side of the Bridge, increasing the stability and providing extra support. In short, a Bridge is an appliance made of porcelain and/or metal designed to replace missing teeth in the most natural way possible.

The Bridge will be custom made to your individual needs in our on-site laboratory. We use only the highest quality porcelain materials available to create a discreet, natural looking replacement.

Losing a tooth can have a significant effect on your health, appearance and self-image. Tooth loss will place great strain on remaining teeth and in turn can affect your ‘bite’. By implementing a Bridge shortly after tooth loss has occurred, we can help to prevent other teeth from moving out of position and preventing the gradual decline of the facial structure and definition after tooth loss. Bridges may also help to prevent periodontal disease, improve speech, enhance your smile and correct your bite.

Either one or several teeth may be replaced with a Bridge. This procedure usually takes from two to three appointments to complete and is very similar to having a Crown placed on a tooth.
