General Dentistry » Bridges
If you have a missing tooth, one option is to have a bridge supported on a neighbouring tooth. Bridges are usually made of porcelain on a metal base which gives them the appearance of natural teeth, a solid structure and makes them hard-wearing.
If you need a bridge in your smile line, they can be made metal-free, using a white material called zirconium under the porcelain for strength. Metal-free bridges have an even more life-like appearance.
Some bridges can also be fixed to your jaw with dental implants, if you have several teeth next to each other that are missing.
Once you have a bridge fitted, you will have to take extra care of your daily hygiene regime to ensure the supporting gum and bone stays healthy.
