Bridges can be a great option for filling the gap created by a missing tooth. Our clinical team can create a false tooth which is either bonded to surrounding crowns or surrounding natural teeth. At Square Mile Dental Centre we often use a composite material that is designed to match the natural colouring of your existing teeth. Most commonly, a false tooth is fixed to two crowns which are bonded to the natural teeth either side of the gap. In cases where the teeth on either side are strong and healthy, the artificial tooth is attached using ‘wings’ which are fixed to the existing teeth.
Having a bridge fitted provides a natural looking restoration of the smile without the need for dental surgery. Bridges can also help to strengthen the surrounding teeth and maintain the health of the existing teeth and gums. There are many different types of bridge, so contact our team to discuss the right option for you.
