A dental bridge is a strong and reliable tooth replacement solution.

Using custom-made crowns and false teeth, your bridge will fill the gap in your mouth. Not only does this protect your teeth from a range of dental problems, you won’t have to worry about living with visible spaces in your mouth.

The benefits of bridges

  • Affordable solution for replacing missing teeth.
  • Returns chewing and speaking ability.
  • Redistributes the biting and chewing forces in your mouth.
  • Maintains the shape of your face (leading to a more youthful-looking aesthetic).
  • Bridges prevent teeth adjacent to gaps from moving out of place.


What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is a custom-made fixed appliance designed to provide long-lasting support for your mouth.

Your dentist will prepare the teeth on either side of the gap in your teeth by placing a crown over the top. A false tooth can then sit in between the two crowned teeth, and in many cases, no drilling is needed.

Will I be able to eat normally with my dental bridge?

A dental bridge will make it much easier to eat harder foods that would have been a struggle when you were living with missing teeth.

If you are having an old bridge replaced, you will find that your new bridge is a much better fit, allowing you to chew without any difficulties. The dental cement we use will also ensure your bridge is sturdy and strong in your mouth, resulting in longer-lasting retention than your previous restoration.

How long do dental bridges last on teeth?

The answer is dependent on how well you look after your teeth and the condition of your teeth when you come and see us for treatment. Patients with certain dental conditions may wish to have treatment prior to their dental bridge, as this may maximise the lifespan of the bridge once it is fitted.

With good oral health care and sound dental health, your bridge could last as long as 20+ years.
