A bridge is a custom made restoration that may be recommended by your dentist if you are missing one or more teeth. Gaps left by missing teeth may cause remaining teeth to shift or rotate into the empty spaces, which may result in a bad bite. The imbalance caused by missing teeth can also lead to gum disease and temperomandibular joint disorders.
A bridge would span the space where the teeth are missing. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth surrounding the empty space and these teeth serve as anchors for the bridge. As with crowns, you have a choice of materials for bridges.
What material is the bridge made from?
There are many different options for the materials used when making bridges. Porcelain bridges are the most popular as they contain no metal, giving cosmetic advantages over the traditional metal or gold crown.
Bridges start from £595.00 per tooth unit
