A dental bridge is a cosmetic dental treatment used to replace a missing tooth by placing a false tooth in the gap and anchoring it to the teeth either side  by placing crowns over the top of them.

The dental bridge literally gets its name because it bridges the gap with a false tooth and two crowns.

Who is a bridge suitable for?
  • A dental bridge is suitable for anyone missing one or more teeth. The surrounding teeth will be the foundation for the false tooth so they, along with the gum tissue, should be in good overall health.
  • A dental implant can also be used to replace a missing tooth, but some patients may prefer using a dental bridge because it can be put in place without the need for oral surgery.
  • The anchoring teeth are prepared in the same way they would be to have an individual crown, which feels similar to a filling carried out under a local anaesthetic.
