Dental Bridges

Home / Procedures

A bridge replaces one or more missing teeth with similar materials and processes which are used in crowns. An artificial tooth is anchored by adjacent teeth to fill a gap or a space left by missing teeth. A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically.

A dental bridge is made up of the same material as a crown, but is made up of at least three crowns joined together.If you have a damaged tooth due to injury or decay, it is important you seek help as soon as possible. If left untreated, the problem will only become worse and lead to more significant problems with more significant costings.

There are three main types of dental bridge and your dentist will recommend the most suitable option for you.

Traditional or Standard Bridge

This is the most common type of bridge where an artificial tooth is implanted where a missing tooth is and a crown is fixed to either side of the implant to create a sturdy ‘bridge’.

Cantilever Bridge

This is a rare option where there is only one tooth adjacent to the missing tooth.

Maryland Bonded Bridge

This is a great option to replace missing front teeth. A false tooth is created, usually in porcelain, to colour match to the remaining teeth and is implanted with a set of metal side ‘wings’ which are then secured to remaining teeth.
