Bridges

If you require a more extensive restoration than a crown or have more than one tooth that needs to be repaired, a good solution is a bridge. Bridges are usually made of a metal base which gives them a solid base and makes them hard wearing. This is then covered with porcelain to give it a more natural appearance. A bridge helps to strengthen the prepared teeth and makes chewing and eating easier because they are fixed and cannot come out. Once a bridge is fitted, you will need to take extra care of your daily hygiene regime and ensure that it stays plaque free. There are different types of bridges which use different fixing methods. We will help you decide which one is the most appropriate one for you assuming that a bridge is suitable for you.
