Bridges

Do you have one or more missing teeth?

A dental bridge serves to replace a missing tooth or teeth. One type of dental bridge consists of crowns placed on either side of the missing tooth to connect the replacement tooth or teeth to them. Another type of bridge consists of the replacement tooth attached to the adjacent teeth with wing-like appendages. Bridges can also be supported by using dental implants as anchors.

Our bridges are hand fabricated in Perth by our local dental laboratory.

 

Here is how they work

  1. Bridges are usually made of a precious metal base, which gives them a solid structure and makes them hard-wearing. Porcelain is usually added to the base to make it look more like real teeth.

  2. A bridge makes chewing and eating easier because it is fixed rather than a removable like a denture.

  3. Some bridges can also be fixed to your jaw with dental implants if you have several teeth next to each other that are missing.

 

Once you have a bridge fitted, you will have to take extra care during your daily hygiene regime to ensure it stays plaque free and healthy.
