A natural looking solution for missing teeth

Bridges fill the gaps left by missing teeth, whether lost through trauma, extraction or other means. They use the teeth either side of the gap as crucial support, known as abutments. Crowns are fitted to these teeth, with the replacement tooth acting as a bridge between them.

Why should I have a bridge?

It is really important to replace missing teeth, and not only because having a large gap in your smile can affect your confidence. The additional space gives your remaining teeth the potential to move out of their natural positions, causing alignment issues. Bridges are an effective and natural looking solution, and can be used as a more secure fixed alternative to partial dentures, staying firmly in place as you eat and speak.

What does the treatment involve?

Initial appointment

At your initial appointment, we start by checking your teeth and gums are healthy and strong, and the abutment teeth will provide a solid foundation. We then prepare these supporting teeth for crowns by removing a layer of enamel.


Custom made

We take digital images and impressions so your bridge can be accurately custom made in a dental laboratory. To protect your teeth during this time, we fit you with a temporary bridge.


Comfortable and perfect fit

Once it is ready, we check your bridge is comfortable and fits perfectly, making adjustments if needed. When you are happy with how it looks and feels, we use dental cement to firmly fix it into place.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I look after my bridge?

    The best way to look after your bridge is to keep up with a regular oral hygiene routine at home. Make sure you brush twice a day, using interdental tools if advised by your dentist. It is also important to attend your routine examination appointments so your dentist can keep an eye on your bridge and ensure it remains problem-free.

  • How long will my bridge last?

    If looked after properly, bridges can last for over ten years. You will need to ensure you are keeping your natural teeth healthy and strong, especially the ones being used to support your bridge.

  • What are bridges made of?

    Bridges are usually made from porcelain or ceramic material, which give a very natural looking finish. This is often fixed to a metal base for increased strength and durability.
