Dental Bridges

What Are Dental Bridges?

A dental bridge is an excellent way of restoring the appearance of a patient’s smile if they are missing one or two teeth or if they prefer not to wear dentures. They are effective at restoring a natural smile, holding the remaining teeth in place, and reducing the susceptibility of the patients remaining teeth to decay and gum disease.
The bridge is a custom made permanent false tooth that is fixed to the remaining teeth.  The results can be excellent with both good function and appearance.

Bridges are made of metal and porcelain or sometimes just porcelain. The teeth can be matched to the colour of your own teeth. We prepare the teeth that will support the bridge to take the fixings and to make sure that the bridge is not too bulky.

At Aston Clinton dental we take an impression of the teeth and any gaps, and our dental technician uses this to make the bridge. A plastic temporary bridge or temporary crown may be fitted in the meantime.

At your final visit, we check that the bridge fits, make any minor adjustments and then fix it permanently in place. Your dentist or hygienist will show you the best way of keeping your new bridge clean.

The difference between the Aston Clinton Dental Clinic and my last Dentist is huge. As far as I am concerned my two children and I get an amazing service. Leila quickly arranged surgery needed that my last Dentist really couldn't be bothered to sort. I am so pleased I moved to this Dentist. All the ladies on reception are so helpful and the parking right outside. Best ever!!

Frequently asked Questions

How long do dental bridges last?

Dental bridges can last 5 to 15 + years . With good oral hygiene and regular checkups, a fixed dental bridge could easily last over 10 years.

Is it hard to eat with a dental bridge?

Replacing missing teeth with a dental bridge should actually make eating easier. Until you become accustomed to the bridge, eat soft foods that have been cut into small pieces.

Do dental bridges effect speech?

It can be difficult to speak clearly when teeth are missing in the front or anterior areas. Wearing a dental bridge with the anterior teeth in their proper relationship will help you speak properly.

How do I care for a bridge?

It is important to keep your remaining teeth healthy and strong as the success of the bridge depends on the solid foundation offered by the surrounding teeth. Brushing twice a day and flossing daily helps prevent tooth decay and gum disease that can lead to tooth loss. Our team at Aston Clinton can demonstrate how to properly brush and floss your teeth.
