A dental bridge is a natural looking way to fill in the gaps left by missing teeth, offering a permanent solution to tooth loss that uses one or more of the surrounding teeth for support. The bridge is usually made from precious metal and porcelain, and cemented to the supporting teeth using a strong dental adhesive.

As well as enhancing your smile, a dental bridge can be beneficial in plenty of other ways such as improving how you eat and speak, creating a better ‘bite’ and helping to keep your natural teeth firmly in place.

How is a bridge fitted?

  • We prepare the supporting teeth by removing a small amount of enamel so there will be enough space to eventually fit the bridge.
  • We take impressions of the surrounding teeth so accurate models can be produced.
  • The bridge is precisely constructed in a laboratory so it will fit correctly and blend in with your natural teeth.
  • While you wait for your bridge, we will usually fit a temporary one to protect the prepared teeth.
  • Your new bridge is checked and adjusted to make sure it fits, and then cemented into place.

After fitting

After your bridge has been fitted, your dentist and hygienist will show you how to keep your bridge clean and will also check the health of the supporting teeth and gums.
