Here at Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we can provide bridges to our patients who are missing a tooth.

What is a bridge?

Bridges are a very common dental restoration treatment used to address the problem of a missing tooth. Bridges are prosthetic teeth used to ‘bridge’ a gap in the mouth and are more often than not attached to the natural teeth on either side of the new tooth using a crown. In some cases, we can use an adhesive bridge to attach the restoration to the natural teeth instead of using a crown.

What are bridges made of?

Bridges are traditionally made of a combination of precious metal and porcelain.

What is the process of getting a bridge like?

The process of getting a bridge fitted is actually fairly simple and, unlike getting a dental implant to replace a tooth, doesn’t require surgery. You will have an impression taken of your mouth here at the practice from which we’ll make a mould.

From this mould, your bridge will be made by a skilled technician. Once the bridge is ready, you’ll return to the practice to have it fitted. If your bridge involves receiving a crown, we will give you a local anaesthetic to make sure you don’t experience any pain or discomfort. If you are receiving an adhesive bridge, no anaesthetic is required as we will simply cement it into place.
