We understand the impact of missing teeth on your oral health and self-confidence.

Dental bridges are an effective and reliable solution to restore your smile and maintain your overall dental well-being. Our professional team of dentists is dedicated to providing you with the highest quality care, ensuring you can smile, eat, and speak confidently.

Types of Dental Bridges

  • Traditional Dental Bridges: Traditional bridges consist of pontics held in place by dental crowns on the adjacent natural teeth. They are the most common type of dental bridge and are suitable when the adjacent teeth are strong and healthy.
  • Cantilever Bridges: Cantilever bridges are used when there is only one adjacent tooth to support the bridge. This design is less common and typically used when there are no healthy teeth on one side of the gap.
  • Maryland Bonded Bridges: Maryland bridges are a conservative option that uses a metal or porcelain framework with wings that attach to the back of the adjacent teeth. They do not require extensive enamel removal from the adjacent teeth.
  • Implant Bridges: Implant bridges are secured in place by dental implants, providing a stable and long-lasting solution for multiple missing teeth. This type of bridge is highly recommended when several adjacent teeth are missing.

The Bridge Placement Procedure

The process of getting a dental bridge typically involves the following steps:

  1. Initial Consultation: Our professional dentists will assess your oral health, discuss your options, and create a personalised treatment plan.
  2. Tooth Preparation: If needed, the adjacent teeth supporting the bridge are prepared by removing a thin layer of enamel.
  3. Impressions: We take precise digital impressions of your teeth to ensure a custom-fit bridge.
  4. Temporary Bridge: While your permanent bridge is being fabricated at a dental lab, a temporary bridge is placed to protect your teeth and maintain your appearance.
  5. Bridge Placement: Once your custom bridge is ready, it is securely placed and adjusted for comfort and function.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

  • Restored ability to chew and speak.
  • Maintained facial aesthetics and smile.
  • Prevent adjacent teeth from shifting.
  • Enhanced self-confidence.
  • Durable and long-lasting solution.
  • Improved overall oral health.


1. What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are custom-made restorations designed to replace one or more missing teeth. They consist of one or more artificial teeth (pontics) that are anchored in place by dental crowns or other supportive structures. Bridges bridge the gap created by missing teeth, improving both function and aesthetics.

2. When Are Dental Bridges Needed?

Dental bridges are recommended for various reasons, including:

  • Restoring the ability to chew and speak properly.
  • Maintaining proper bite alignment.
  • Preventing adjacent teeth from shifting into the gap.
  • Improving facial aesthetics and self-confidence.
  • Replacing missing teeth when a patient is not a suitable candidate for dental implants.
