Dental Bridges

If you are missing more than one tooth, your surrounding teeth are likely to shift into the empty spaces, causing your remaining teeth to become misaligned. This can increase your risk of developing jaw and bite problems.

A dental bridge is a method for replacing these missing teeth. Made of durable porcelain, the procedure for creating a dental bridge is similar to that used for developing a crown.

The supporting teeth on either side of the gap, to which the bridge is bonded, are prepared, and the bridge is precisely constructed to fit snugly over them. Teeth serve many functions beyond chewing and biting, making it critically important to replace missing teeth for several reasons:

  • To improve appearance.
  • To prevent damage to other teeth due to stress.
  • To prevent the teeth near the gap from moving and shifting.
  • To preserve and maintain the natural bite.
  • To improve chewing and eating.
  • To prevent alterations in speech.
  • To prevent facial aging and the sagging of facial muscles.

Dental Bridges FAQ’s

A dental bridge is a set of artificial teeth made to replace missing teeth. The artificial teeth are set onto a substrate that bridges the gap caused by the missing teeth.

Fitting a bridge requires the teeth on either side of the gap to be crowned. A bridge is manufactured off-site in a specialist laboratory.

No. A dental bridge, unlike a denture, is permanently bonded to the two natural teeth on either side of the bridge.

A unit refers to a single replacement tooth. A 3-unit dental bridge means a bridge that is made up of three replacement teeth.

The women at this practice are phenomenal. I have had fear of the dentist my entire life due to a traumatic experience as a four year old. I finally bit the bullet last month and went to see Karen the hygienist and she made me feel so comforted. Then I met Erika the dentist and she was wonderful also. Yesterday I had restorative work done and for the first time in my life I wasn’t nervous about going to the dentist. I was so relaxed the entire time. Erika has such a calming, relaxed and professional presence. She continually asked if I was ok through each process and I honestly can’t thank her and her team enough. They’ve changed my life in the sense where I no longer feel scared. I actually can’t wait to go back and have my routinely hygiene appointment. WHAT?! ????

If you’re looking for a new dentist, I can’t recommend this one enough. It’s been a while since I’ve been to a dentist and as such I wasn’t very confident finding somewhere new. However the team here have been absolutely incredible. Kind and happy to explain the process, including prices and health fund contributions. Excellent dental facilities and a comfortable waiting room. I’ve seen they also have online booking options, which seems very convenient. Thank you to all the team today for making my first appointment in a long time an enjoyable one.
