Bridges

Bridges.....bridge that gap

 

 

Many people have unsightly spaces in their teeth or areas of their mouth that don't function properly whilst chewing, yet don't seem to realise that things need not stay that way. People often worry that their cheeks are folding in where they have missing teeth but these problems are easily avoided. Simply by providing a dental bridge to replace the missing teeth you can have these problems corrected.

 

A bridge replaces missing single or multiple teeth so that the patient does not have to wear a denture.

 

 

There are a variety of techniques to do this. A bridge is permanently fitted and unlike a denture is not removable. We will provide you with details of different techniques that we feel are most appropriate for your needs. We will, of course, also provide you with details of the various fees for those options so that you are able to decide what you believe is right for you.

 

Preparing the teeth to support a bridge is done very smoothly and comfortably on the first visit.
 
An impression is taken which does not need to cover the whole mouth, which means no discomfort or worry for the patient. We would then normally provide a temporary bridge to protect the prepared teeth which would be functional and aesthetic. This would usually be worn for up to two weeks whilst our technicians use their skills to construct your bridge in the laboratory. When the bridgework is ready it is a simple and much shorter visit to fit the work permanently to complete the procedure. Your bridge will look and feel like your own teeth and you will be able to eat immediately. 

 

 
 If you want to fill a gap in your mouth, this treatment could be for you. A new bridge can look and feel quite natural, giving you back the function and appearance that you desire. 

Treatment is painless, comfortable and is usually easily achieved in just two visits.
