Bridges

  • Bridges provide a fixed and permanent way of replacing missing teeth. Conventional bridges are made by crowning teeth on either side or both sides of the gap and attaching a false tooth to replace the missing one. Strong teeth either side of the gap and good support are needed for successful bridge work.
  • Adhesive bridges or resin-bonded bridges (commonly known as ‘sticky bridges’) are available in certain situations and are more conservative than conventional bridges.
  • Bridges can be made from a number of materials including: metal alloys, gold alloys, porcelain and zirconia. They can also be made from a combination of metal and porcelain.
  • Bridges help to restore function, aid speech, provide a better appearance, distribute the chewing load over a greater area by replacing teeth and prevent drifting and tilting of other teeth.
