Do you have a missing tooth? Do you want it replaced with something fixed in the mouth?
Many patients have a tooth missing and the gap is often visible when they smile, leaving an unaesthetic smile.
We can help fill the missing space using a bridge. Bridges are bespoke to each patient and are not removable. The dentist will complete an examination to identify which type of bridge is best for you.
A fixed bridge is made by placing crowns on the teeth at either side of the space, and then joining these two crowns together by placing a false tooth in the space.
Another option is an adhesive bridge. This has wings attached to the false tooth that are bonded to the back of the supporting adjacent teeth.
If you have several teeth next to each other that are missing you may be more suited to an implant-retained bridge. This involves placing implants in the area of missing teeth and then making a bridge to fit over the implants.
Benefits of a bridge
- They are fixed in your mouth, which makes eating easier.
- They look like real teeth, giving a good cosmetic solution to replace missing teeth.
- They are long lasting.
