Dental Bridges



Made from the same materials as crowns, bridges are mainly used to replace missing teeth. Bridges are limited to the presence of neighbouring teeth so that ceramic teeth can be attached to by means of resins or cements.

Gaps can lead to increased stresses on your remaining teeth and interfere with the way you bite, eat and smile. A bridge can be a valid treatment option to tackle these issues as well as giving an improved cosmetic appearance.

Bridges are a fixed option to replace missing teeth. Dental Bridges are commonly used to cover a space if you’re missing one or more teeth. They are normally cemented to natural teeth or implants surrounding the space where the tooth once stood.

All our crowns have extended warranty for members of our dental plans.


In addition to improving function, bridges can be used to improve appearance.

Gaps left by missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift, which can result in impaired function.

When assessing a patient’s need for a dental bridge the dentists here at Inspired Dental Care will determine whether any of the following factors have occurred:

  • A tooth has been lost and a bridge is needed to fill the gap.
  • To improve a tooth’s cosmetic appearance.

If we have recommended a dental bridge to you, we will explain the process in greater detail at your dental appointment and be able to answer any questions that you may have.

  • A well made dental bridge is strong and has the same look and feel as a natural tooth.
  • They can fill a space following tooth loss.
  • They can be colour matched to your teeth.
  • When looked after properly they can last for many years.


A gap of any size can cause problems which may include:

    • Causing the adjacent teeth to shift from their correct position. Gaps and movement of teeth can negatively impact your bite, this can create issues for your jaw and hinder your ability to speak and chew well.
    • A lack of dental support caused by missing teeth can lead to other health problems including headaches, earache and neckache.

It is vital that patients replace missing teeth as quickly as possible to prevent any further issues.

A well made dental bridge can last for many years providing that the teeth and gums are professionally maintained by your dentist and a good oral health routine is maintained at home.

  • Keep your teeth and gums healthy by brushing twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste and daily inter-dental flossing.
  • Reduce the frequency of your intake of sugary and acidic foods/drinks to prevent tooth decay from occurring.
  • Regularly visiting your dentist for oral health examinations and your hygienist for professional teeth cleaning.
  • Adapt your home cleaning routine as advised by your hygienist to ensure optimal benefit.
