Dental bridges are a natural looking way to fill the gaps left by one or more missing teeth. They consist of a false tooth, similar to a crown, positioned between two crowns which slot over ‘abutment’ teeth either side of a gap.
As well as restoring an incomplete smile, they can help to improve eating, speaking and the contours of your face, and they will also keep your existing teeth firmly in place.
The treatment and fitting process
- The abutment teeth are prepared by removing a layer of enamel to make space for the crown.
- We take impressions of your teeth so your bridge can be tailor-made. A temporary restoration will be popped in place to protect your teeth while you wait for your new bridge.
- During your next appointment, your bridge is checked and adjusted to ensure it fits perfectly.
Prices will vary depending on the number of missing teeth and the size of the bridge.
