A Dental Bridge is the process where we use the two teeth adjacent to the gap to form a framework to replace the missing tooth. This can be done with many different materials with varying strengths. The most popular materials are tooth coloured, but we can also provide gold if requested. Meet our team and see the friendly faces who will care for you through your Bridge treatment.

- Step 1 – We make sure you are seated in a comfortable position as the Bridge procedure can take from 60 minutes to 90 minutes.
- Step 2 – We apply a numbing gel to the area we are going to treat to ensure that any injection will be as pain-free as possible, then place the anaesthetic.
- Step 3 – We reshape the two adjacent teeth to the ideal proportions to ensure we can create a strong and natural-looking bridge framework.
- Step 4 – We use our intra-oral scanner to take multiple photos of your mouth so we can digitally recreate your teeth to their natural beauty and function
- Step 5 – We make temporary teeth for you to use while we are creating your new bridge.
- Step 6 – At your next appointment, we glue on your brand new bridge; your missing tooth has now been replaced.
