Dental Bridges



What is a Dental Bridge?

Gaps arising from missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, which may result in biting problems. Missing teeth can also cause temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), speech impediments, an increased risk for periodontal disease and a greater chance of tooth decay. Dental bridges or dental implants offer the best means for filling in gaps or replacing missing teeth.

Bridgework uses a replacement tooth to fill the gap created by the tooth loss. They are cemented to the natural teeth or dental implants surrounding the empty space. These teeth, called abutments, serve as anchors for the bridge. A replacement tooth, called a pontic, is attached to the crowns that cover the abutments. 

As with crowns, you have a choice of materials for bridges. Crowns can be matched to the colour of your natural teeth. Your dentist can help you decide the most appropriate material and brand based on the location of the missing tooth, aesthetic considerations and cost.


Benefits of a Dental Bridge

  • Restores and maintains proper biting, chewing and speech as well as restoring your smile
  • Prevents the natural teeth shifting or drifting into the space created by the missing tooth
  • Prevents changes in the shape of your face from tooth loss
  • Natural looking and durable



Steps of the Procedure 

1 st Appointment

  • Clinical examination including matching the shade of the crowns with your natural teeth, evaluation of the X-Ray and consultation.
  • Administration of local anaesthetic.
  • Preparation of the teeth adjoining the missing one(s) by removing a small amount of tooth structure.
  • Taking an impression of your tooth by means of an intra-oral camera or conventional mould filled with dental paste which you will be asked to bite into. The impression will be then sent to our on-site dental laboratory where your crown will be fabricated. 
  • Placement of a temporary bridge using temporary cement. Avoid sticky or hard food and avoid chewing from that side until your final fitting appointment. 

2 nd Appointment

- Checking the fitting in terms of bite, size, shape and colour. When the results are satisfactory, the bridge can be polished and cemented at the second appointment in some cases. 

3 rd Appointment

- Final adjustments, polishing and permanent fixing of the bridge. One or two extra appointments might be arranged for perfect fitting where needed.

My teeth feel fine. Do I still need to see a dentist?

Your teeth may feel fine, but it’s still important to see the dentist regularly because problems can exist without you knowing. Your smile’s appearance is important, and your dentist can help keep your smile healthy and looking beautiful. With so many advances in dentistry, you no longer have to settle for stained, chipped, missing, or misshapen teeth. Today’s dentists offer many treatment choices that can help you smile with confidence, including:

  • Professional teeth whitening
  • Fillings that mimic the appearance of natural teeth
  • Tooth replacement and full smile makeovers
Why is visiting the dentist so important?

Visiting the dentist regularly will not only help keep your teeth and mouth healthy, but will also help keep the rest of your body healthy. Dental care is important because it:

  • Helps prevent tooth decay
  • Protects against periodontal (gum) disease, which can lead to tooth and bone loss
  • Prevents bad breath – brushing, flossing, and seeing the dentist regularly will help reduce the amount of bacteria in your mouth that causes bad breath
  • Gives you a more attractive smile and increases your self-confidence
  • Helps keep teeth looking bright by preventing them from becoming stained by food, drinks, and tobacco
  • Strengthens your teeth so that you can enjoy healthy, beautiful smiles for the rest of your life!
