Dental Bridges

There are a few options to close a gap where a single tooth is missing or multiple teeth are missing along the same row. One of the quickest and most cost effective solutions is to close the gap using a fixed Dental Bridge. A Dental Bridge is as the name suggests, a Bridge over the tooth/ teeth that are missing that anchors onto the teeth either side of the gap. The teeth either side of the gap are prepared in order to anchor the Bridge. A Dental Bridge is a fixed non-removable solution unlike a conventional Denture, which is removable. As a general rule, if you have a single tooth missing you will need a 3 Tooth Dental Bridge to close the gap. If you have 2 teeth missing next to each other you will need a 4 Tooth Dental Bridge and if you have three teeth missing along the same row you will need a 5 Tooth Dental Bridge. Simply count the number of teeth missing and add on an extra tooth/ Crown at each end to calculate the size of the Bridge needed. Although the Crowns are joined together to create the Bridge they will appear to the naked eye as individual teeth so the end result is natural in appearance. As a Dental Bridge is a fixed solution, full function is provided with regards to chewing and speaking. The materials used are also varied but preference is given to Metal Porcelain Crowns (PFM), or Zirconium Porcelain Crowns. If you are travelling for a few days we can also use CAD CAM technology to design and mill your new Dental Bridge in the clinic itself without the need for an outside laboratory to complete any aspect of the procedure, saving time and you money.  

All-Ceramic or “Metal-Free” restorations are the most esthetic restorations in dentistry, since they can be designed as translucent as natural teeth. These restorations can be baked, pressed or milled. However, all ceramic restorations do not fit with comparable accuracy to metal restorations. Because ceramic restorations cannot have thin aprons that extend under the gum, they cannot seal the teeth as effectively. They depend on bonding materials to seal the voids—materials that can be inconsistent because they are so technique sensitive. These inconsistencies often lead to decay in a susceptible individual. Ceramic restorations work best in the front of the mouth where they are easily accessible for hygiene.

Reasons for a fixed bridge:

Fill the space left by missing teeth
Maintain a full facial shape
Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
Restore chewing and speaking ability
Restore your smile
Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance

Dental Crown Procedure

Dental Crown treatment is arranged in the following steps according to the results of the consultation:

• Preparation of the teeth
• Taking the impression
• Insertion of the Temporary Crown
• Construction of the Crown
• Insertion of the final Crown

During your first visit our dentists will prepare the teeth to provide an easy fit for the crowns.
An impression of your teeth is taken which is used to construct your crown.
A temporary crown is then fitted onto the teeth.
On your next visit the dentist removes the temporary crown and fits the permanent crown onto the teeth.
