Bridges in Southend

A simple solution for a missing tooth. Bridges use the surrounding teeth to support a dental crown and restore your smile. This procedure can be completed in just two visits for fast and effective results.

What is a dental bridge?

Bridges are used to replace missing teeth, using the surrounding teeth as an anchor. A dental bridge offers a simple way to restore your smile in just two visits. If you’re self-conscious about gaps in your teeth, this is a simple and effective way to restore function and prevent your remaining teeth from shifting.

The dental bridge procedure

Dental Bridges are an alternative to partial dentures or dental implants and can be used to replace one or several missing teeth in a row. Crowns are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap and false teeth are used to fill the gap joining the crowns together. The teeth either side of the gap must be strong enough and healthy enough to support the bridge.

Following an extraction, you may need to wait 4 – 6 months for the gum to heal before a bridge can be fitted. We can fit a temporary denture while you wait for your bridge restoration.
