Bridges

What are bridges made of?

Bridges are usually made of a precious metal. If the bridge will show, porcelain is then bonded to the base. Sometimes, there are other non-precious metals used in the base for strength.

Are bridges expensive?

Although a bridge may seem costly they can be a wise investment that will give many years of good service. It will also improve your appearance and bite. A bridge uses the considerable skill of the dentist and technician, and in this way, it’s similar to ordering a piece of hand-made jewellery.

How do I look after my bridge?

You need to clean your bridge every day, to prevent problems such as bad breath and gum disease. You also have to clean under the false tooth every day. Your dentist or hygienist will show you how to use a bridge needle or special floss, as a normal toothbrush cannot reach.

 

 

 

‘I just want to say Thank you so much for the super job you have done on my front teeth – I never thought they could look this good again! You have made them look so good and I am very grateful to you and Michelle for all the care you have given to me. I would also like to say, not even in my wildest dreams would I have described a dental surgery as being ‘homely’ yet I feel yours does – you and the staff have made that difference!’
