What are Bridges?

A bridge is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth whereby it fixes a replacement tooth (or teeth) to one or more remaining natural teeth or implants. Some bridges have crowns at each end, others are only fixed at one end. Some are fixed to the surface of the teeth next to the gap known as “minimal preparation bridge” or “sticky bridge”. This is where the false tooth is held in place with a wing that is bonded onto adjacent teeth. This involves less destruction of tooth tissue but can require repair or replacement.

What will my dentist do?

There are several stages in making a bridge:

  • The dentist uses a soft, mouldable material to take impressions of your mouth. A dental technician makes exact plaster models of your upper and lower teeth and gums, which show how your teeth bite together.

  • The teeth that will support the bridge are prepared to take the filings and to make sure that the bridge is not too bulky.

  • Another impression is taken of the teeth and any gaps, and the dental technician uses this to make the bridge. A plastic temporary bridge or temporary crown may be fitted in the meantime.


Improved appearance

It can improve the way you look, bite, chew and speak The teeth can also be matched to the colour of your own teeth.

Long lasting & protects

Natural teeth are protected from wear and tear, and from moving or tilting out of line which could cause your teeth to bite together incorrectly. A bridge can also last many years.
