Dental Bridges

Restore the appearance and function of your teeth with our high quality dental bridges.

Dental bridges provide an excellent alternative to dentures or dental implants. By bridging the gap between your existing teeth, you can return your smile to its former glory and start enjoying life to the full.

What are dental bridges?

A dental bridge is a false tooth that has been anchored to crowns or dental implants on either side. This helps you to replace your missing teeth and achieve a natural-looking smile.

They’re an excellent option when:

  • You are missing no more than three teeth in a row
  • You prefer a less invasive procedure
  • Dental implants are unsuitable for you
  • Are looking for a faster alternative to dental implants

At Cotteswold House Dental Care, we use bridges to replace two or more missing teeth and our clients are delighted with the results.

What is the procedure for dental bridges?

You will need two appointments for your dental bridges. During the first, your dentist will conduct a thorough examination and explain what options are available. They will then prepare your teeth for the bridge by taking an impression and adjusting the fit. You will also be fitted with a temporary bridge so you can continue eating and drinking as normal.

At the second appointment, your dentist will fit your bridge and ensure that you are 100% happy, making any adjustments as required. They will then permanently fit the bridge in place and explain how to take care of your new dental bridge.

Who can have dental bridges?
Anyone! At Cotteswold House Dental Care in Gloucester, we can use them for patients who are missing at least two teeth.
Can I remove my dental bridge during the day?
Your dental bridge will be bonded to your natural teeth. This means you can’t remove your dental bridge during the day. If you wish to do this, dentures may be a better option for you.
How long will my bridge last?
On average, bridges last for around 10-15 years, depending on how you care for them. For longer-lasting results, ensure you are brushing and flossing your teeth regularly and attending dental check-ups.
Are dental bridges better than dentures?
If you prefer a permanent solution to tooth loss, dental bridges tend to be the better option. Discuss your options with your dentist to find the best dental solution for you.
