A bridge is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. It is a strong and stable solution to fill gaps in your teeth, restoring function and appearance.

When you lose a tooth, it can cause discomfort, problems when eating and might affect your confidence. That is why at Etwall Dental Practice we offer a number of solutions to replace missing teeth with natural-looking, resilient prosthetic alternatives.

If you require a traditional dental bridge, crowns will be placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap. The prosthetic or false tooth will then be placed into the gap and will be supported by the crowns. Once these restorations are fitted into the mouth, they will be fixed with a special adhesive for a permanent result.

Other types of bridges include:

  • A cantilever bridge, which is held in place by one natural tooth instead of two.
  • A resin-bonded bridge which is bonded to the supporting teeth via a metal framework.

Bridges can be made of metal or porcelain and will be created specifically for you in our laboratory.
