If you require a more extensive restoration than a crown or have more than one tooth that needs to be repaired, the right solution is a bridge. Bridges are usually made of a precious metal base which gives them a solid structure and makes them hard-wearing. If you need a bridge in your smile line, porcelain is usually added to the base to make it look more like real teeth. A bridge helps to strengthen the prepared teeth and makes chewing and eating more comfortable because they are fixed and can’t come out.
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, your daily hygiene regime will be essential in preventing any problems long term.
