Gaps in your smile are unsightly and can lead to a wide range of oral health problems. Dental bridges eliminate gaps and restore your teeth by literally bridging the space between missing teeth. The end result is a natural, beautiful and functional smile.

What are bridges?

A dental bridge is a false tooth that is held in place by the abutment teeth on either side of the gap. Bridges are typically made from porcelain- a material that matches with your natural teeth.

Do I need bridges?

Dental bridges are an effective solution for the replacement of missing teeth in the mouth, offering both functional and aesthetic correction.

In terms of functionality, the bridge allows you to eat and speak normally as there is no longer a gap in the jaw.

Aesthetically speaking, a dental bridge can compensate for the loss of the original teeth, particularly if the bridge is closely matched in colour to the surrounding teeth.

A bridge has many benefits, including:

  • Restoring your smile
  • Restoring the ability to properly chew
  • Restoring your speech and pronunciation
  • Maintaining the shape of your face
  • Preventing your remaining teeth from shifting
