Dental Bridges
in London

What are dental bridges?

We offer all-ceramic dental bridges as replacements for one or more missing teeth (a fixed dental prosthesis) which is an artificial tooth or bridge pontic (false tooth), bonded on the adjacent or abutment teeth during the procedure to literally bridge the gap presented.  

Who is suitable for dental bridges?

Dental bridges close (or bridge) the gap caused by a missing tooth or multiple teeth. Significant spaces present in your smile can affect its aesthetic appearance and so your personal confidence, your ability to eat, speak and pronounce in comfort plus impact on the shape and structure of your face.

When it comes to replacing teeth, trust in your team at Wimpole Street Dental Clinic to offer you a full suite of treatment options suited to your individual case which will be diagnosed at consultation.

What happens during treatment?

  • After consultation, if you agree to receive a dental implant, your dentist will use photos, a 3D X-ray and a digital scan of your teeth to prepare to proceed with our computer-guided implant operation for you.
  • Rest assured you will receive an appropriate anaesthesia. We conduct precise preparation of your neighbouring teeth to ensure that the bridge we produce offers you the perfect fit.
  • An intraoral scanner, one of the tools available in-house from our state-of-the-art technology portfolio is used to take an impression of your teeth.
  • Your dentist places a temporary plastic dental bridge over the prepared teeth whilst the all-ceramic (permanent) version is developed.
  • One of our dental technicians will use the teeth impression to create the all-ceramic bridge to the exact colour specification you require for your ultimate comfort and confidence.
  • Your plastic dental bridge is removed, your teeth or implant is cleaned and a high-performing adhesive dental cement is applied to secure your bespoke all-ceramic dental bridge.
  • Post-treatment, your dentist will advise you on all the aftercare information and advice plus tips on good oral hygiene you may need to look after your bridges.

FAQ’s

A well-made dental or fixed bridge can go problem-free for several decades. 

Please allow your dentist the opportunity to both evaluate your loose bridge in clinic then recommend the best course of action for you by booking an appointment with us at our dental practice as soon as possible.

We offer all-ceramic bridges designed to provide you with a perfect match to the look and feel of your natural dentition. Rest assured that we can deliver an ceramic dental bridge which looks almost indistinguishable from your existing teeth.

Our ceramic bridges close the gap with two dental crowns or caps on either side of the missing tooth with an artificial or false tooth (bridge pontic) present in the middle bonded in place using adhesive dental cement. A bridge can be used for filling gaps in front teeth, which is sometimes a more cost effective alternative to something like dental implants. If you’ve suffered trauma or damage to your front teeth and are pursuing restorative treatment, speak to your dentist about whether a dental bridge is suitable for your situation.

Our bridge procedure will usually take at least two visits to our clinic here in London – one for consultation and preparation and the second for fitting. Your dentist will be best placed to advise you on how long it may take exactly to adjust to your bridge. As an estimate, allow for a couple of weeks to be deemed settling in time after your procedure.

Dental bridges are generally used to bridge the gap created by one to four teeth.

Your oral hygiene regime is vital to the ongoing care of your bridge as it is for your natural teeth. We recommend that you brush your teeth twice a day, floss regularly and remove any plaque which accumulates.

We offer ceramic bridges (using dental porcelain for example) as we believe they offer our patients the best possible functional and aesthetic results providing long-term stability, precise fit, high durability and high biocompatibility. Other common materials used to produce bridges include non-precious metal alloys or gold plus you can consider a combination product – a metal-ceramic option is also possible. It is increasingly common for zirconia to be used to manufacture a dental bridge due to it’s strong and durable properties. Zirconia bridges can last for a lifetime with proper care and maintenance. Ask your dentist about what materials are available to you and their benefits at your initial consultation.

When thinking about your preferred material for your bridge procedure, it may be prudent to consider the benefits it will provide to your ongoing oral health and well-being.

The strength of your bridge lies in the material used to produce it, the precise tailor-made fit, which is achieved by your dental care team, use of adhesive dental cement to bond it into place in addition to the support offered by the neighbouring healthy teeth, affected gums and portion of the jaw.

Your dentist will be able to assess your own individual case as presented during your appointment.

The choice between a dental implant or bridges can depend on your individual case but is also greatly affected by how many missing teeth you are seeking to replace.

A dental implant can restore a single missing tooth most effectively but it is a surgical procedure whereas a dental bridge or dental prosthesis can be tailor-made to close the gap present in your smile caused by up to four missing teeth. Your dentist will be able to explain the difference between dental implants and bridges.

A dental bridge is just a dental prosthesis made from a ceramic material, metal alloy or combination of the two which has been precisely prepared, fitted and so attached by way of dental adhesive cement with anchor support provided by the good oral health of the neighbouring teeth. Our all-ceramic dental bridges offer high levels of biocompatibility in that it works well with living tissue. Should you have any concerns regarding the safety of the use of dental bridges, please consult with a member of our team.

Common reasons for discomfort include a loose fit of the bridge, the development of tooth decay under it, a dental abscess developing or the onset or progression of gum disease which means that the neighbouring teeth can no longer offer the same level of support to it. If you are experiencing significant discomfort post-treatment, please contact us to book an appointment at our dental practice.

We offer all-ceramic bridges which would feel in terms of shape and tooth colour as indistinguishable from your natural set of teeth as we can possibly make them. You can feel the bridge securely in place within your mouth and may take time to adjust to eating and chewing, for example, as it settles in.

High quality and comfortable bridges that stand the test of time

Treatment Reviews

Dental Bridges London

Nina O’Rilley

My treatment included nine implants (6 in the upper and 3 in the lower jaw), a bone augmentation with bone transplant, sinus lift, and several crowns and bridges. Treatment started in February 2015 and ended in March 2016. Of course, there were more sessions: an extraction of three teeth and removal of an old implant, nine implants as well as a bone transplant, etc. In one session, Dr Mehl conducted a five-hour operation while I was under general anesthesia. I made it through everything without complications. The healing process has also passed without any problems. Then there was a creation and adaptation of interim bridges. During the entire treatment, I felt really good. I was treated professionally and friendly, and I always had confidence in receiving great results. Dr Mehl and his team gave me my smile back. Thanks a lot to the entire team.
