Large gaps caused by missing teeth can cause disruption to your ‘bite’ and can be a breeding ground for gum disease and temporomandibular joint disorders.
Bridges are attached with a permanent cement to the natural teeth surrounding the empty space in your mouth and serve as anchors.
There are many different kinds of bridges and your dentist will help you decide which is most suitable for your requirements based on the location of the missing tooth and its function as well as cosmetic considerations.

Nobody even knows that I’m missing any teeth. My bridge matches my normal teeth perfectly. Spot on.
First you will need to book an appointment so we can prepare your teeth for your new bridge. We will take impressions and match your shade to make sure we get a perfect colour match to your natural teeth. We will then ask you to return later for another appointment where your dentist will bond your custom made bridge onto your teeth.
All of our highly trained dentists use the latest technologies and techniques to make the experience as comfortable as possible and to avoid any discomfort.
However, some patients may experience a small amount of sensitivity for a short period of time, but it typically goes away on its own within a few day. Some bridges are less invasive than others and shouldn’t cause any discomfort whatsoever.
Your dentist will help you decide which type of bridge is best for you.
