Dental Bridges

Our state-of-the-art dental practice in Lewisham uses dental bridges to replace missing or unhealthy teeth. With our quality dental bridges, your smile will be beautiful as well as functional for many years to come.

The benefits of dental bridges

  • Restores smile
  • Corrects bite
  • Helps you chew food properly
  • Allows you to speak clearly
  • Prevents bone loss
  • Restores facial shape
  • Protects remaining teeth

The 3 types of dental bridges:

  • Traditional bridges
    These bridges are crafted from ceramic or metal covered with porcelain to provide strong and natural-looking replacement teeth. Crowns are bonded to the remaining teeth on either side of the gap to hold the bridge in place.
  • Maryland bonded bridges
    Artificial teeth and gums are supported by a metal or porcelain frame.
  • Cantilever bridges
    These bridges replace missing back teeth which require greater strength.

At your consultation with your experienced dentist in Lewisham, we will determine which bridge is best for your case.

What does the treatment involve?

Your private dentist in Lewisham will gently file down the teeth on either side of the missing tooth or teeth. Impressions of your teeth will then be taken in order to custom-make your bridge.

Your bridge will be made to match the shape and colour of your natural teeth. About one to two weeks later, you will return to our dental clinic in Lewisham for your permanent bridge to be fixed in place.

How do I look after my bridge?

It’s important to brush your teeth after meals, and floss once a day to keep your bridge clean and free from bacteria. You must also visit our dental surgery in Lewisham for regular checkups to ensure your bridge remains in good condition.

How long do they last?

Dental bridges are designed to be a permanent replacement for missing or damaged teeth. If they’re not taken care of, however, they may become loose or fall out. Your cosmetic dentist in Lewisham will advise you on how to ensure the longevity of your bridges.
