How are dental bridges fitted?

If you have a gap in your smile created by the absence of one or more teeth bridges can be easily fitted to ensure your smile and bite are restored. By doing this, you will be able to improve your smile’s appearance, reduce the risk of gum disease, protect your jaw from joint trouble, and chew and speak with greater ease.

Bridges are permanent prosthetic devices that act as a structure between two crowns to fill the gap where teeth are missing. Fitting a bridge initially involves taking an impression of your mouth. This will allow our dentist to make a bridge that is the perfect size, shape and shade for your individual teeth. It ensures that you are getting the most comfortable and most natural looking bridge you possibly can.

Your teeth will also be prepared to have the bridge attached, This includes removing a small portion of enamel to allow the crowns to fit naturally in your mouth – a simple process that only involves a very mild discomfort.

On your second visit, your permanent bridge will be fitted. Until then you may, in some instances, be able to have a temporary bridge to protect your mouth during the interim. The bridge will be made from the most appropriate material to ensure they are strong and durable as well as providing the best aesthetics. It will be fitted into your mouth to cover the gaps in your smile and your dentist will take the time to adjust it as necessary to guarantee a comfortable, natural fit. In some cases, another visit may be required at a later date to double check the fit and make sure your bite is perfect.

Dental bridges can last as long as 15 or more years with good oral hygiene and proper aftercare. The success of a dental bridge relies on the strength and healthiness of your teeth. This means they should be properly brushed and flossed to avoid decay or gum disease.

Dental Bridges FAQs

  • Do dental bridges hurt?
    Part of the process of fitting a dental bridge involves removing enamel from the front of your teeth. This allows a crown to fit over it, which the bridge is then attached to. This can cause some discomfort. However, the dentist may choose to use local anaesthetic to numb the pain.
  • What are they made from?
    Dental bridges are made from porcelain fused to metal or ceramic.
  • Can they be removed?
    They can only be removed by a dentist with the right equipment. It will not be possible for you to take them out and put them back in as you please.
  • Can dental bridges be replaced?
    Dental bridges can be redone if required. However, with proper oral hygiene, this should not be necessary for at least 15 years, if at all.
  • How long do they last?
    The longevity of your dental bridge very much depends on how you look after it. With regular brushing and flossing to ward off gum disease or tooth decay, dental bridges can last as long as 15 or more years.
