What are Dental Bridges?

A dental bridge serves to fill a gap in your dental structure by replacing a missing tooth with a synthetic one, securely affixed to the adjacent natural teeth. There are primarily two types of dental bridges. The more common variety involves two crowns, typically crafted from porcelain or metal, permanently attached to the natural teeth on either side of the void, with the false tooth (or teeth) positioned in between.

In cases where the neighbouring teeth are robust and in good health, an adhesive bridge may be a viable option. This type of bridge consists of a false tooth with ‘wings’ on each side, securely bonded to the inner surfaces of the supporting teeth. This approach eliminates the need to prepare the neighbouring teeth for full coverage crowns.

Advantages of Dental Bridges

The advantages of dental bridges are manifold. They provide a lasting remedy for missing teeth without resorting to surgical procedures, unlike dental implants. Furthermore, with the availability of porcelain finishes, the new tooth can closely resemble the natural teeth surrounding it.

Beyond aesthetic considerations, opting for a dental bridge can enhance your confidence in your smile and facilitate everyday activities such as eating and speaking. Additionally, replacing a missing tooth contributes to the protection of your remaining teeth. Gaps in your dental structure can lead to the shifting or leaning of adjacent teeth, impacting your bite. The spaces may also trap food, increasing the risk of tooth decay.

In essence, choosing dental bridges is an investment in your confidence, overall quality of life, and oral health.

What are the alternatives to dental bridges?

There are several ways to replace missing teeth. It’s important to explore all the options and discuss them with your dentist. Alternatives to bridges are Dental Implants.

Dental Implants are an imitation porcelain tooth (a crown) fitted on top of a titanium implant that is fixed directly into your jawbone

Your dentist will help you decide which option is best for you. Dentures and bridges are only offered on the NHS if it is considered to be clinically necessary to replace teeth, but dental implants are usually only available privately.

We have been with this practice for approximately 35 years and have always been satisfied with all the dentists and reception staff.


Polite, friendly team, Mr Khan is very caring by giving me talking through his procedures. Repeatedly asking patients if they were okay. Lovely ‘bedside manner’ with the thought of the patient at heart.


I have been here for many years and have also recommended this practice to my father.
