Dental Bridges Cheltenham

Do you have one or more missing teeth and want to restore your smile? Our implants can give you the confidence to smile a natural smile.

A dental bridge is a bespoke crafted precision used to cover and rebuild a gap in your teeth. This is done by cementing it over your tooth or implant. Commonly, dental bridges have been ceramic fused to metal. Although thanks to improving technology, materials based on Zirconium are now being used, this has reduced the need for a metal foundation for your bridge. All-ceramic bridges now are the standard in implementing the best aesthetic finish.

The Several Types of Bridges

Resin Bonded Dental Bridges (Maryland)

An extremely conservative treatment option is the Maryland bridge, this is the method of replacing a missing tooth with an artificial tooth which has been fused to metal ‘wings’. These ‘wings’ are then cemented to the back surface of the teeth either side of the gap, making this an easy on the eye option.

Cantilever Dental Bridge

The Cantilever bridge is primarily used at the front of the mouth, where a lower level of stress forces are present. A Cantilever bridge is the method of anchoring the new false tooth to one of the current adjacent teeth. A more conservative option than a fixed bridge, it is an effective solution for the one missing tooth.

Traditional Fixed Dental Bridge

The Traditional Fixed Bridge is the most commonly used type of bridge. It consists of at least three units to replace one or more missing teeth. Beginning with both teeth either side of the gap prepared to take the bridge. Once fixed, it cannot be removed.

Implant Supported Dental Bridges

Dental Implants are the most convenient way to replace missing teeth. An implant is carefully set into the bone where the tooth root would initially have been. Once it has fused to the bone, it is then ready to be restored with singular crowns or, in the case of multiple teeth being absent, an implant-supported dental bridge can be used.
