A Bridge is a fixed replacement for a missing tooth or teeth. It is made by taking an impression of the surrounding teeth, which will eventually support the Bridge. A bridge is usually created from precious metal and porcelain and will be fixed in your mouth.
Bridges are one of the most popular methods of replacing missing teeth. The method of fitting bridges uses the gap on either side of the tooth/teeth to hold a new tooth in place. The treatment becomes better where fewer teeth are required to replace, as it helps stability of the artificial teeth. The treatment involves the rebuilding of the tooth area to prepare for the bridge, once ready, the artificial tooth is carefully cemented into the area, allowing the bridge to float into the gap, creating that lovely smile.
The Tooth Spa, Leeds offers both metal and composite bridges. Composite has a more natural look but we take the clients budget into account and provide the best possible answer for you. Bridges can be hand-made from porcelain to create a more natural looking tooth so the replacement is less obvious.
Bridges can last upto ten years with correct care, and provide a natural look, without the need for implants..
