Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth and provide a beautiful, cosmetic and quick result. New technology means even quite large gaps can be filled, giving high-strength, metal-free, cosmetic results. With bridgework, it is frequently possible to give you a complete smile within a few days.
Bridges can reduce your risk of gum disease, help correct some bite issues, prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position and even improve your speech. Bridges require your commitment to serious oral hygiene, but will last as many as ten years or more.
A bridge is made up of two or more crowns that fit to teeth on either side of the gap, which serve as anchors, along with a false tooth in-between. A bridge will support the false tooth or teeth, and reduce the susceptibility of remaining teeth to decay and gum disease.
By placing crowns on one or both the teeth at either side of the gap and are joined together by placing a false tooth in the space.
This has one or two ‘wings’ that are bonded to the back of the supporting abutment teeth, requiring very little removal of tooth – an ideal option if the teeth are otherwise healthy.
If you have several teeth next to each other that are missing, some bridges can also be fixed to your jaw with dental implant.

Why consider dental bridges
Why might I need a bridge?
A bridge is a replacement for one or more missing teeth. It is a good solution if you don’t have many missing teeth, or if your missing teeth are all on one side of your mouth. It is important to replace missing teeth to prevent your remaining teeth from drifting into the empty space, as well as to restore the appearance of your smile.
How do I look after my bridge?
You will need to clean your bridge and the false tooth or teeth it supports every day. Your dentist will show you how to use a bridge needle or special floss to ensure your bridge is thoroughly clean. To prevent damage, it’s best to avoid chewing hard foods and ice. By taking good care of your bridge, you can ensure it will last for many years.
How long do dental bridges last?
Dental bridges can last 5 to 15 years. With good oral hygiene and regular check ups, a fixed bridge could easily last over 10 years.
Is it hard to eat with a dental bridge?
Replacing missing teeth with a dental bridge should actually make eating easier. Until you become accustomed to the bridge, eat soft foods that have been cut into small pieces.
Do dental bridges effect speech?
It can be difficult to speak clearly when teeth are missing in the front or anterior areas. Wearing a dental bridge with the anterior teeth in their proper relationship will help you speak properly.
