Dental Bridges

Bridges are used to fill in gaps and replace missing teeth. These are used as a very viable alternative to dentures if the surrounding teeth are strong enough to support the bridge. They are permanent and less bulky than dentures.

Bridges are attached to neighbouring teeth and just like crowns, and are made from porcelain, metal or a combination of both. The colour is matched to your existing teeth so they look very natural. A bridge can make such a difference to your mouth and allow you to eat, talk and smile with confidence.

There are many bridge designs. A typical bridge is illustrated here. The natural teeth either side of the space have been prepared to have crowns (or "caps") fitted. These crowns are permanently fused to an artificial tooth in the centre.

Can I take a bridge out of my mouth?

No. Bridges are cemented in place, so they cannot be removed for cleaning. They are fixed in your mouth permanently so they feel and look like a natural tooth.

How do I look after it?

To keep the teeth healthy, the gap under a bridge must be cleaned daily using special dental floss - an ordinary toothbrush will not do the job. Your dentist or hygienist can demonstrate how to use floss under your bridge.

Can I have a bridge instead of a denture?

If only one or two teeth are missing, a bridge may be used to replace them instead of a denture. If there are suitable teeth on either side of a gap, it may be possible to use them to support one, or sometimes two, artificial teeth.

How quick can I have a bridge made?

A bridge can be made in 2 visits. Your dentist will prepare your teeth and take moulds of your teeth at the first appointment. A dental technician will make the bridge and your dentist will fit the bridge about 1-2 weeks later.
