Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a great way to replace any gaps created by missing teeth.

There are several types of dental bridges. The “traditional bridge” is our most popular, it is a fixed appliance that is usually made of a strong ceramic material. It consists of crowns over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) which are attached to pontics (artificial teeth).

At Deall Dental we use trusted professional laboratories to make our dental crowns rather than in-house milling machines.

Dental bridges are highly durable and will last for many years. Over the years they may need replacing or re-cementing due to normal wear and tear.

Factors that can impact this include:

  • Location of the bridge in the mouth
  • Health of support teeth and gums
  • The length of the bridge
  • Overall oral hygiene

Good oral hygiene, eating habits and regular dental visits will help prolong it’s life.

The alternatives to a bridge are removable dentures or a dental implant. A removable denture is the cheaper option. It is often uncomfortable and difficult to adjust. A dental implant is a great option as it doesn’t rely on the teeth around it for support.
