Gaps due to missing teeth can easily be fixed with dental bridges. This also involves attaching a dental crown on the tooth beside the gap, allowing a false tooth to be attached. Each of our dentists is trained to work side by side with the dental technicians during each step of the fabrication – resulting in bridges that look natural and functional. Patients are often amazed by how unnoticeable their dental bridges are.
Some of the benefits to this treatment are:
Aside from dental bridges, gaps can be fixed by partial dentures and dental implants.
With an in-clinic CEREC system, we can now offer same-day dental bridge restorations to our patients. If you have broken your dental bridge or simply require a same-day treatment for any reason, book an appointment at one of our centrally-located London clinics.
Our dentist will first take a 3D scan of your tooth and, if needed, prepare the teeth for a bridge application. We will then create a model of the required restoration, which we send to an on-site milling machine.
The ceramic CEREC restorations are created from a single block of dental ceramic and have proven to be durable and visually pleasing. When the restoration has been made, our dentist will attach the bridge using dental composite cement, and your treatment will be complete in just a few hours.
Resin-bonded or resin-retained dental bridges are the less invasive alternative. Attached to the surrounding teeth via metal or plastic attachments, these restorations rely on dental cement for stability which is why they are often considered temporary.
Nonetheless, if this is your first need for a bridge and you’re not willing to have the surrounding teeth shaved down, a resin-bonded dental bridge may be the perfect solution for you.
