An excellent solution to two or three missing teeth. A bridge will restore your smile and confidence.
We often suggest dental bridges where patients have two or three teeth in a row that are missing. The bridge is anchored to crowns or implants on either side. The bridge is natural in its appearance, enabling you to smile confidently. This is a faster, less invasive procedure than having implants placed, and can be an ideal solution if adjacent teeth are suitable candidates.
The dental bridge treatment requires two appointments. In the first, the dentist will first check patient suitability for the treatment. They will also take an impression and fit a temporary bridge for comfort before the final fitting. At the second appointment, the bridge is fitted and adjusted to ensure the patient is happy.
If you have two or three missing teeth, a bridge may be a suitable solution. Book a consultation with your dentist to be assessed and explore your options.
Dental bridges are a permanent fixture and cannot be removed. Dentures provide a similar solution that is removable.
Usually, bridges last between 5 to 15 years. This is largely dependent upon how well you care for your bridge with a good dental health routine. Implants can offer a longer term solution but similarly require great ongoing care.
