A natural looking way to fill the gap in your smile

If you have a missing tooth, whether lost through injury, trauma, decay, or extraction, it can be important to fill the gap quickly to not only boost your confidence but also to support the surrounding teeth and maintain your facial shape and structure.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is used to replace a missing tooth, bridging the gap between two existing healthy teeth. Crowns or small wings are fitted to one or both adjacent teeth, supporting the replacement tooth and providing a stable and secure solution

We know how important a natural-looking smile is. Our bridges can be made from tooth-coloured porcelain, blending seamlessly with your existing teeth and stopping them from shifting out of position. Bridges also help your mouth feel more natural, as they allow you to speak and chew easily, balance your bite and, ultimately, enable you to maintain your natural smile.

Types of dental bridge


The most common type of bridge, using the teeth on either side of the gap as support. This type requires the abutment teeth to have crowns fitted.


The Maryland dental bridge uses a replacement tooth attached by metal or tooth-coloured ceramic wings to the teeth on either side. One main advantage of this type is that the existing natural teeth only need a minimal layer of enamel removed from the inside aspect of the tooth.


A cantilever bridge is used if the replacement tooth can only be supported by an existing tooth on one side.

What does the treatment involve?

Firstly, we examine your teeth, checking that the teeth that will support your bridge are healthy and strong. We prepare them by removing a layer of enamel to accommodate a crown.

We perform an intra-oral scan of the area and get images of your teeth, which are used to create your custom bridge. The scanner offers both accuracy and greater comfort than traditional impressions. We fit a temporary bridge to protect your prepared teeth until your permanent one is ready.

When your bridge is ready, we ensure it fits perfectly in your mouth, making any small adjustments if necessary. When we are both happy, we fix the bridge into place using strong dental adhesive.
