Bridges

A dental bridge replaces missing teeth with false teeth. The bridge is attached to the real teeth on either side of the gap left by the missing teeth. Bridges are usually made of porcelain or metal, or a mixture of the two.

When would you need a dental bridge?

You might require a dental bridge when you have a missing tooth or teeth, but still have health teeth on either side of the gap.

What does the procedure involve?

To prepare for a dental bridge, your dentist will usually file down the 2 healthy teeth on either side of the gap. Your dentist will then take a mould to make your bridge.
