Dental Bridgework

A bridge is one way replacing a missing tooth. It fixes a replacement tooth   (or teeth) to the natural teeth on either side of the gap. Some bridges have crowns at each end. Others are fixed to the   surface of the teeth next to the gap via little 'wing' extensions. 

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

 

An impression is taken of the teeth and any gaps, and the 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, the dentist will 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.
