Dental Bridges

Dental Bridges

The loss of teeth can happen for any number of reasons. Whether the result of serious decay or an injury, the tooth that was lost left a gap between teeth that needs to be addressed. While the loss of some teeth may not have an immediate impact on your smile they can have an impact on your bite. You may find that you avoid chewing on one side, and inadvertently cause more pressure on the other. This can lead to more wear and tear on those teeth.Beyond this, missing teeth can also lead to the shifting of the remaining teeth. A dental bridge can help to resolve some of these concerns.



What are bridges?

Get results you love

Dental implants are a good solution for the replacement of missing teeth. They are not always the right option for all patients however. When you look at a dental bridge vs. implant, the decision will be based upon the unique needs of each patient. Bridges are just what they sound like. They are dental prosthetics that bridge the gaps left behind by missing teeth. Fixed dental bridges can restore dental health, function and strength to the mouth.Unlike their counterparts of the past, modern dental bridges offer as many aesthetic benefits as they do oral health benefits.Bridges can be made from any number of materials. They could include porcelain, Zirconia, and porcelain fused to metal.


What are bridges used to treat?

Simply put, a tooth bridge is used to replace a missing tooth or multiple teeth. A fixed bridge is a permanently affixed dental solution that can restore a smile and also restore a comfortable bite. A temporary dental bridge may be used before permanent implants can be considered, and can be used while waiting for your permanent bridge to be made.

What is the process of being fitted for bridges?

There is a bit of preparation that needs to be done before you can be fitted with your dental bridge. If you have healthy teeth on each side of the missing tooth or teeth, your dentist will prepare them to be the solid foundation for the bridge. If you do not have healthy teeth, or sufficient teeth to offer support for the bridge, then dental implants may be the solution that works best for you. The implant will act as an anchor for the tooth bridge.

  • Your dentist will take an impression of your teeth. These are sent to the laboratory so that a custom-fitted bridge can be made. A temporary bridge may be placed.
  • Once your permanent bridge is ready you’ll return to the dentist chair. Here your dentist will remove the temporary bridge and set the custom bridge in place.
  • The bridge will be permanently affixed to your healthy teeth or to the implants that you had inserted.
  • In just two visits you can restore your smile with the easy dental bridge procedure.
What are the advantages and disadvantages to bridges?


Dental bridges offer a number of advantages. They can help to improve your bite, while reducing wear and tear on your surrounding healthy teeth. They can help to keep your healthy teeth from shifting around in your mouth. Very often teeth will move into those spaces created by missing teeth. This can create a host of additional dental concerns that could have been quite simple to prevent.

With proper care and treatment, bridges can last up to a full decade. Bridgework should be brushed and flossed just like natural teeth. At your routine checkup appointments your dentist can inspect your bridgework for any cracks or other damage.    
A Dental Bridge can be a more budget friendly option over a mouth full of implants, and can work well with both your healthy natural teeth and selectively placed implants. They are a good option to consider when you are in need of replacing multiple teeth in your mouth.

  • review rating 1  Erika is the worst dentist Ever ! I had an implant and root canal treatment with her and after that extensive bridge based on that. Over 3.5 years after that , i was kept in the dark coming back to her for check ups, no one ever told me how serious problem i have because of the treatment i have received from her, My gums were constantly swollen and i had pain around due to bridge. She kept sending me off with prescriptions which worked few months. Recently, i went to another dentist and he took a panoramic X- Ray which clearly shows that the implant was a huge failure and there was a huge bone inflammation around the implant and as a result of that the bone around has dissolved. There was no support for the implant as it was sitting on the lap of the bone. The root canal treatment was a also a huge failure as the x-ray showed a huge absence around the root and my new dentist could only remove both teeth as a result of this i lost the whole bridge I therefore do not want to recommend Erika to anyone PLease think twice

  • review rating 1  I had an appointment at 9 am at Crown dental, the receptionist, me and the dentist were waiting for an assistant (Sofia) for an hour standing at the front door. When she turned up with absolutely no care in the world, she didn't say hi or sorry not to even mention that she hasn't pick up the phone from the dentist and the receptionist, just turned up out of the blue. I was already 1 hour late into my very important treatment, and when I finally got to sit down on the chair, starting with impressions, the doctor asked the assistant Sofia to prepare the impression and at the end she did awful proportions of the impression, it would not solidify, she has the cheek and very little care of me (patient), of my precious time and money and the stress I have to go through to get a crown done. Unfortunately I was not able to finish my treatment because there were other people booked in for an appointment so she had to return me back home. I travelled taking 2 buses to get there just to get an impression that wasn't even prepared properly. The assistant Sofia is a young person and definitely not trained up to be taking up a serious job like this. She is absolutely incompetent, patients health and best care isn't in her best interest, and the ethics behind performance absolutely makes her a person unable to take on such a serious and responsible job. The dentist was unable to do her job because of the lack of help and lack of consideration that the assistant Sofia offered her.

  • review rating 5  Both myself and my husband have been Dr Erika's patients for over a decade. Crown dental is the cleanest, most equipped dental practice I have ever been to. Both dentists and the nurses are highly qualified and are brilliant with nervous patients. My husband had a dental implant done here with A+ results. Their prices are highly competitive but without compromising on quality. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

  • review rating 5  I've been a patient at Crown Dental for over 6 years. When I was younger I played professional Rugby and lost a good number of my front teeth due to a freak-accident (knee in the face). For years I had a denture, which was a hassle to eat with. It also made me self conscious in social interactions, until I could bare it no longer. Crown Dental was recommended to me and it literally changed my life in so many ways! Over this period I had 4 implants, 5 crowns, 1 bridge and several root canals done, along with a couple of fillings and cleanings. I now have an amazing smile that all my friends and family are complimenting me about, it restored my confidence and gave me a brighter outlook on life. Thank you Dr. Erika for changing my life.

I can't stop smiling, it boosted my confidence, I feel like a different person. Thank you dr. Laura for changing my life.
