Missing teeth can be replaced with a dental bridge. This is one of several methods used at Churchill Dental in addition to dentures. It permanently anchors to the adjacent teeth, on each side of the missing tooth or teeth. Those teeth that the bridge will need to connect to will need to be prepared for crowns, an impression made and the dental laboratory will create a custom fabricated bridge to match your teeth.
A temporary crown or bridge will be placed over the prepared teeth while the final prosthesis is being made. Both crowns and bridges are permanently cemented to your teeth, therefore, are not removable by the patient.
There are other types of adhesive bridges that are glued to the adjacent teeth that do not require the preparation of a healthy tooth. the most suitable type of bridge for you will be made after a complete oral health assessment.
For examples of our past cases please visit our smile gallery. We will be delighted to advise you as to the most suitable type of bridges for your individual needs.
