Dental Bridges

Replace missing teeth in Maidenhead

Dental bridges are a fixed replacement for missing teeth. It’s made by taking an impression of the surrounding teeth and creating a prosthetic that fills the gap, perfectly matching the surrounding teeth.

The two teeth either side of the bridge need to be ‘prepared’ to support the bridge and this usually involves recontouring the teeth by removing a portion of enamel to allow room for a crown to be placed over them.

Restoring teeth using a bridge usually involves wearing a temporary bridge for a short period whilst the final restoration is made at our dental laboratory.

Why might I need a bridge?

If you are missing a tooth or adjacnet teeth, in some cases a bridge will be a suitable treatment.

What materials are used to make a bridge?

Bridges are constructed from strong materials, usually involving a metal or porcelain framework onto which is built a porcelain outer layer. New materials now mean that bridges can be constructed from strong, tooth coloured materials in one structure.

How long will my bridge last?

The longevity of any dental restoration is dependent on how it is cared for but if looked after properly it should last many years.
