Bridges

What Is a dental bridge?

Dental bridges are an excellent way to replace a tooth, if you qualify. There are several types of bridges, but all of them require adjacent teeth for support to hold the permanent false tooth in place. If you have a missing tooth or teeth, there are various treatment options available to you. Bridges are less invasive than an implant, but more permanent than partial dentures. Dental bridges are a method of attaching one or more artificial teeth, in the mouth, by relying on the neighbouring teeth for support. In certain situations, dental implants or crowns can be employed to act as support for a bridge. For the strongest bridge, good support is needed on both sides of the false section.

Why Bridges?

We offer the following types of dental bridge:

Adhesive

Attached to the inside of the nearby teeth.

Regular

The surrounding teeth act as a support for the bridge, holding it in place before it is cemented.

Resin-attached

Secured to a neighbouring tooth using a resin-coated ‘wing.’

Implant-retained

Restores missing teeth using dental implants.

Maryland Bridges

With these bridges, little to no preparation of your tooth is necessary, which means that local anaesthetic isn't needed either. Instead, an impression will be taken of the tooth and sent alongside your smile design and custom prescription. These are then tested by yourself and approved before being cemented into place for a long-lasting hold; however resin-bonded bridges are known to not last as long as they're conventional counterparts, but they are cheaper and only require minimal preparations.

Implant Retained Bridges

Implant retained bridges are the closest man-made option to replacing natural teeth. We offer many options for an implant-supported bridge. The process begins with a consultation and assessment with one of our dentists. They will talk through all of the available options with you, to allow you to make an informed decision about which route is the best for your smile.

Traditional Bridges

The "false tooth" is placed in the gap, left by a missing tooth, and held in place by two porcelain crowns on either side of the false tooth. This type of dental bridge can be used to replace one or multiple missing teeth.

I absolutely love coming here for my checkups and treatments, the team are so friendly and professional. Mark at the reception desk is always really helpful and we have a nice chat before I go into my appointment. I’ve been coming here for a few years now and definitely won’t go anywhere else, I went somewhere else in-between and had work done that wasn’t done properly and some that wasn’t needed at all, needless to say Dr Zagzag was fantastic and redone the work and removed the fillings that weren’t needed. I went in for my regular check up today and everything was looking good! He’s always happy to answer any questions I have and his dental nurse is really friendly too, I always feel welcome when I’m seen here. I highly recommend this practice, I’m very well looked after.
