Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth. They are fixed, long lasting and comfortable. There are various types and designs of bridges but all use the existing natural teeth on either side of the missing tooth/teeth as support to replace them. Our expert dentists design and construct the custom made bridge just for you to fit perfectly and look completely natural and beautiful.
There are several benefits of having a bridge placed including the improved cosmetics, additional chewing function, additional support and load sharing with your other teeth and prevention of your remaining teeth from moving out of position, thus becoming misaligned or crooked.
What does the treatment involve?
At your first appointment, we ensure your teeth on either side of the gap will provide healthy and strong support for the bridge. We then prepare these teeth for the bridge.
We take impressions or digital scans of your teeth and mouth so that your custom made bridge can be expertly constructed. We fit a temporary bridge to protect your teeth in the interim.
When your bridge is ready, we check it fits perfectly, feels comfortable and that you are completely happy with it before fixing it securely into place.
Was an amazing experience since the first appointment where I had my dental plan put in place. Was super understanding with my situation and what work I wanted to have done. All the staff I had met during my 3 appointments were very nice and provided a great service overall.

Great practice and would highly recommend!! I had been going to another dentist for a while but didn’t seem to explain anything or help me with options.
Decided to come to Eccleshill Dental. Was amazed. I had a 40 min examination and then went through all my issues. They broke it down to things that I ‘needed’ to do and then discussed things that might ...

My 1st visit at this very swish practise. All the staff were friendly and welcoming. Clare(dentist) was lovely, calming and made me feel comfortable. I can’t say anything negative and would highly recommend.

I would like say a massive thank you to Karan at Eccleshill Dental for giving me the confidence to smile again.
The dental work I had done was not a straight forward procedure. My teeth needed bleaching and then a new front crown needed to be made to match their new colour.
After the course of Enlighten treatment my teeth were temporarily left patchy in ...

Can I remove my bridge?
No, the bridge is securely fixed into place and cannot be removed. This makes it a solid restoration, enabling you to eat and speak without issue.
How do I look after my bridge?
The best way to look after your bridge is to include it in your normal oral hygiene routine at home. You need to brush it twice a day, including cleaning under the false tooth, to prevent gum disease or decay from occurring. We are happy to show you how to clean your bridge effectively.
How many missing teeth can I replace with a dental bridge?
In most cases, a bridge is used to replace a single missing tooth. However, we can replace three consecutive missing teeth if required. Your dentist will discuss in detail all the options for replacing your missing teeth at your consultation.
What are the alternatives to a bridge?
You may consider a partial denture or implants to replace your missing tooth or teeth. Implants are incredibly secure and function exactly like a natural tooth, but are more costly. Partial dentures are removable, but they don’t have the stability of other options.
