Do you have one or more missing teeth and you’re tired of having to hide your smile every time?

- Dental bridges have a natural look
- Dental bridges can be supported by your natural teeth or by implants

What are dental bridges?
A dental bridge is a fixed dental prosthesis that fills the gap caused by one or more missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth definitively to adjacent teeth.
Bridges are attached to your natural teeth or to implants, which support the structure and are called abutments.
The false teeth that replace the gap are called pontics and they can be made from several materials, depending on your preferences: porcelain, gold, alloys or a combination of these.
How can dental bridges improve your smile?
Our experienced dentists here in London recommend dental bridges because they are an effective tooth replacement solution that can improve both your lifestyle and your oral health:
- Dental bridges fill in the gap between teeth in a natural way, so that you won’t have to hide your smile.
- Enjoy your favourite foods once again because dental bridges fix chewing and bite problems.
- No more speaking issues caused by missing teeth.
- Prevent your healthy teeth from drifting or tilting into the space left by the missing tooth/teeth over time.

DENTAL BRIDGE FAQs
How do I care for dental bridges?
Maintaining good oral hygiene is key in maximising the lifespan of your dental bridges.
Brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing and using anti-bacterial mouthwash reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease, but don’t forget that avoiding excess sugars is just as important.
How long do dental bridges last?
Dental bridges are a durable tooth replacement solution. With proper oral care and regular dental check-ups, a dental bridge can even last for more than 10 years.
Will I have difficulty eating with a dental bridge?
No, on the contrary. The very goal of dental bridges is to make chewing easier.
However, in the first days after the procedure we recommend eating soft foods, so that you can get used to your new dental bridge.
Will people be able to tell I have a dental bridge?
Not unless you tell them. Dental bridges provide a natural result and will match the colour of your surrounding teeth.
