A cosmetic bridge is a permanent, very realistic solution to restore spaces and can significantly enhance your smile and confidence.
A bridge is very similar to a crown. It is made up of aestitically pleasing, strong tooth coloured material which makes them almost indistigiuishable to the untrained eye.
Bridges are usually made up of two or more crowns. One or two crowns will be used to ancor the bridge exsiting teeth and the crowns between will be used to fill a gap caused by a missing tooth or teeth. Missing teeth are replaced for a number of reasons. Appearance is one reason and another is that the gap left by a missing tooth can mean greater strain is put on the teeth at either side. A gap can also mean your 'bite' is affected, because the teeth next to the space can lean into the gap and alter the way the upper and lower teeth bite together.
The tooth or teeth either side of the gap being treated is prepared, under local anaesthetic so this is completely painfree. The dentist takes an impression and may fit a temporary bridge for the two weeks it takes for the permanent veneers to be custom made for you. When your bridge is recieved back it is then bonded to the tooth/teeth with a special tough adhesive. We use the highest qulaity materials and the very best labratory to acheive amazing, natural results.
