Dental Bridges

Dental bridges offer an effective solution for replacing missing teeth, restoring both aesthetics and functionality to your smile. We expertly design bridges to seamlessly blend with your natural teeth, ensuring a comfortable fit and a rejuvenated appearance.

WHAT IS A DENTAL BRIDGE?

A bridge is a device a dentist inserts to fill a gap where a tooth is missing. A “conventional” bridge consists of a false tooth (or teeth), known as a pontic, which is affixed to a crown on a tooth next to the gap. A “Maryland” bridge, on the other hand, is where the pontic is fixed to the teeth on either side using wings, meaning that it is not necessary to fit a crown to the other teeth.

Is a Dental Bridge for Me?

Dental bridges offer an exceptional solution for those seeking to bridge the gap created by missing teeth. Our team of experienced professionals understands that each patient’s needs are unique, and we’re here to guide you through the decision-making process. A dental bridge not only rejuvenates your confidence by enhancing your appearance, but it also aids in maintaining proper oral health and functionality. With state-of-the-art techniques and personalised care, we’ll assess your individual case and recommend the most suitable treatment plan, ensuring your journey to a complete, stunning smile is comfortable and successful.

WHAT ARE INLAYS, ONLAYS, AND OVERLAYS

Porcelain (tooth coloured) inlays and onlays are restorations placed usually on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth.

An inlay fits within the confines of the teeth. An onlay covers the entire chewing surface of the tooth. These can be made of plastic resin, gold or porcelain.

An overlay dental bridge is a specialised restoration that restores a missing tooth by fitting over adjacent teeth, creating a seamless blend of functionality and natural appearance.

The procedure involves removing decayed tooth structure or old fillings, preparing the tooth cavity, taking an impression of the cavity to fabricate a custom-fit inlay or onlay. Two visits are required to complete the treatment.

FAQ’s

A dental bridge is a dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. It typically consists of an artificial tooth (or teeth) anchored by crowns on the adjacent natural teeth or implants, thus “bridging” the gap where teeth are absent.

The procedure generally requires two appointments. During the first visit, the adjacent teeth are prepared, and an impression is taken to create the bridge. The second visit, typically a few weeks later, involves fitting and cementing the permanent bridge into place.

Yes, there are several types of dental bridges, including traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, and Maryland-bonded bridges. The best type for you depends on the location of the missing tooth and other individual factors.

Dental bridges require regular brushing and flossing, just like natural teeth. Special floss or interdental brushes might be recommended to clean under and around the bridge. Regular dental check-ups are crucial to ensure the bridge and surrounding teeth remain healthy.

With proper care, dental bridges can last 10 to 15 years or longer. The lifespan of a bridge depends on factors like the material used, oral hygiene practices, and regular dental visits for professional cleanings and check-ups.

I can’t thank you enough Graeme, Lacey and the staff behind the scenes. This is my second denture and I cannot express the care that is taken to produce it. You are given a comprehensive plan, along with an explanation of all the steps to completion, the finished product is so aesthetically pleasing and extremely functional with assurances of support if you have any worries to the future. Graeme and Lacey are so genuinely friendly, but with a down to earth no nonsense approach to your requirements. I would highly recommend this practice and will return in the future when the need arises.

I can’t thank and praise Andrew and Graeme enough .. a year ago they changed my life around going from someone who couldn’t laugh or smile without covering their mouth and not being able to get to close to people in case my breath was bad.. I was ashamed and embarrassed having not been to a dentist in 35 years. I was petrified from a young age of dentists. I couldn’t even sit in ‘the chair’just to talk about my teeth before I met these two brilliant men. I went somewhere else the previous month before who charged a lot of money,removed all of my teeth and gave me the biggest most badly fitting temporary dentures, i looked ridiculous.. I started to wish I had never had started the process I was devasted. They said then that my gums were too difficult to make dentures for and they couldn’t do anything for me !!!! They did however refer me to The Dental Practice uk and in turn Graeme and Andrew,the best thing they could have done. They instantly made me relaxed and completely confident in what they said they could do, they had me in the palm of their hands..3 weeks later and cheaper than the first dentist’s I had everything they promised the most beautiful delicate dentures that suited my small face.I do use fixadent because of my flat palate and receding gums but I apply at 6.30 am and work split shifts till9.30 pm without once having to re apply. These 2 men are really passionate about what they do and it shows,I have my smile and confidence back and I can’t thank them enough. Sorry it’s taken a year to write the review ! Thank you for everything Lisa

£85 for a check-up which lasts 3 minutes seems rather excessive. No Xrays, despite being told when booking that the check-up included Xrays. I understand that this was after about 6 months since my last check-up (when Xrays were taken), but then, it should be reflected in the price. Disappointed by the extremely rushed approach.
