It is a tooth replacement method that involves filling a gap between your teeth, joining them together with a ‘bridge’. It requires at least one strong adjacent tooth to securely support the dental bridge. This restorative solution can provide you with a natural-looking smile as the bespoke bridges are made to match the colour of your natural teeth.
Gaps in your teeth can be more than just a cosmetic imperfection as they can cause other dental issues. Replacing a missing tooth can help you avoid unwanted speech difficulties, gum disease, shifting of the remaining teeth, as well as the deterioration of your jawbone.
Before the treatment, we will take impressions of your teeth in order to create your bespoke dental bridge. It can be made to match the colour of your natural teeth to repair your smile without anyone noticing the artificial restoration. Once your custom bridge is ready, we will fit and secure it to your natural teeth adjoining the gap.
A dental bridge can last you for several years if your oral health and hygiene are maintained well. Regular dental examinations and visits to Lenham Dental may prolong the longevity of your smile.
