What is a dental bridge?


A dental bridge is a fixed appliance designed to fill the gap or gaps left behind by missing teeth.

Our dental crown and bridge services sometimes require more than one visit. The first visit is used to scan and examine the areas of the mouth that require the procedures. This information is then used to create highly realistic natural looking crowns and/or bridges to suit your mouth, which can be permanently attached at your next visit.


How do dental bridges work?

There are a number of different types of dental bridges, but generally speaking a bridge consists of two crowns that attach over existing teeth to form anchors on each side of the gap, and a ‘bridge’ of artificial tooth or teeth that stretch between the two crowns.
