Natural-looking replacements for missing teeth

Bridge the gap

Whether you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, it is important to consider a replacement, even if your gap isn’t causing you any concern. Over time, your remaining teeth will begin to shift, putting pressure on neighbouring teeth and potentially affecting your bite function and facial bone structure. A bridge provides both a functional and an aesthetic solution.

How it works

Bridges typically need to be anchored to crowns either side of the gap to be filled. Your dentist will prepare the teeth on either side of the gap and take an impression. The impression is sent to a laboratory where your bridge is made bespoke to match your natural teeth. Your dentist will then cement the crowns with your new bridge in place. As everything is secured with strong cement, there is no need for a plate or denture – so your bridge will look and feel as natural as your own teeth.

How is a dental bridge made?

A bridge is custom made for your mouth; your dentist will take dental impressions and send these to the laboratory. The laboratory will create a bespoke bridge that will fit your mouth as closely as possible and be attached to the supporting teeth.

How long will my bridge last for?

Look after it properly, following your dentist and hygienist’s advice, and you can expect your bridge to last for upwards of 10-15 years.

How do I look after my bridge?

You’ll need to clean under and around your bridge every day to prevent problems such as bad breath and gum disease. Your dentist or hygienist will recommend cleaning products, such as interdental brushes, and show you how to use them.
