Filling the gap of missing teeth
A Dental bridge is a fixed solution to replace a missing tooth or teeth by using the teeth either side of the gap as anchors. It is fitted into place, meaning it doesn’t need to be taken out at night and shouldn’t be confused with dentures.
Bridges can be a great alternative to dental implants or dentures. For example, if the teeth either side of the gap are damaged, a bridge not only fills the gap, but also treats the teeth either side in the process.
Type of bridges
Full coverage dental bridge – the teeth either side of the gap need to be shaped.
Resin Retained Bridge – is the right option if your teeth are healthy either side and an implant is not an option. This is also a bridge that is glued in to teeth either side of the gap so no damage is done. It is a cost effective option.
