We usually recommend a bridge to patients who need a more extensive restoration than a crown, and where more than one tooth is involved. A bridge helps to strengthen the prepared teeth and makes chewing and eating easier because they are fixed and can’t come out.

Bridges are usually made of a precious metal base and if it’s in your smile line, porcelain is then bonded to the base to give it a more natural appearance. Once you have a bridge fitted, one of our hygienists will show you how to clean your bridge carefully so you can prevent bad breath and a build-up of plaque.

As dentists we believe prevention is always better than cure and will always encourage and help you to look after your teeth so you don’t develop tooth decay in the first place.
