A Brand New Smile

A bridge an option to replace one or more missing teeth. Replacing a missing tooth or teeth is incredibly important as a gap not only impacts your appearance but also causes strain on the teeth and can affect your ‘bite.’

Typically made with a precious metal base or all ceramic, a bridge is fixed in place by crowns on either side. Natural looking, a bridge can be treated like normal teeth and porcelain is bonded to the base to improve the look. Proper cleaning is important to prevent gum disease, bad breath and other issues –a bridge should last many years if looked after with excellent oral hygiene, this will be monitored by attending the dentist and hygienist regularly after the bridge has been placed, without regular attendance the bridge WILL fail -your dentist or hygienist will show you the best method using special floss or special brushes.
