What is a bridge?
A bridge is a false tooth which is held in place by the teeth next to it. It provides a permanent and realistic looking way of filling a gap caused by one or more missing teeth. Bridges are made of tooth-coloured porcelain and are bonded to any visible areas to make them look natural
Why might I need a bridge?
We might suggest fitting a bridge:
- If you have a gap between two teeth that you would like to fill for aesthetic reasons.
- If you have a gap between two teeth that is affecting your bite
What is the benefit for me?
Having a bridge fitted can prevent further problems with missing teeth and will also improve your appearance and bite. A bridge is a wise investment that with proper dental hygiene and care can last for many years.
