Restore the Gaps in Your Smile
Missing teeth create gaps that can be sometimes corrected with a Bridge – a long-term solution that will improve the appearance of your smile and also prevent other teeth from shifting out of place.
Bridges can help with speech and chewing food, resulting in a natural-looking and functional substitute for your missing teeth.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why would I require a dental bridge?
Dental bridges are a common dental solution to restore the gaps in your smile, enhance speech, and improve the ability to chew food.
How is a Bridge fitted?
The fitting process depends on the individual case. If you have recently had teeth removed, you may need to wait until your gums have healed before a permanent bridge can be fitted (it can be up to 6 months or so). If this is the case, in the meantime, a temporary denture may be used.
It should be noted that it’s crucial to have reliable bone support and healthy remaining teeth for the Bridge to be successful. Our experienced dentists will discuss all the options with you and keep you informed at every step of the process.
How do I take care of my bridge?
It’s essential to clean your bridge every day to prevent gum disease and bad breath. Our hygienist can provide guidance and show you the best method to use for cleaning.
What materials are bridges made of?
