Dental Bridge in Leeds

Man smiling

Our expert team is here to help you achieve a confident smile with high-quality dental bridges. We focus on professional, personalised care to ensure you get the best results – there’s no better dental practice to trust with your dental bridge.

Boost Your Confidence With Dental Bridges Today

Dental bridges are a straightforward way to replace missing teeth, instantly improving your smile. They work by using crowns on the teeth next to the missing one to support a fake tooth that fills the gap. Unlike partial dentures, bridges are fixed in place, giving you a stable and secure solution that feels and looks natural.

We know how much missing teeth can knock your confidence. With a dental bridge treatment from us, you can bring back your smile. Book in for a consultation today.

The Benefits of Dental Bridges

If you’re looking to restore your smile after the loss of one or more teeth, dental bridges could be the answer.

Firstly, they provide a cosmetic solution that looks and feels natural, seamlessly blending with your existing teeth to enhance your smile and boost your confidence. Beyond looks, dental bridges play a big role in improving oral functionality. They enable you to chew and speak more effectively, distributing the force in your bite properly to avoid extra stress on other teeth.

They also help in maintaining the shape of your face, preventing the sunken look that can occur with tooth loss. Even your remaining teeth will benefit, staying properly aligned and preventing them from drifting into the gap left by a missing tooth. By protecting the integrity of your existing teeth and gums, dental bridges are a durable and effective solution for long-term oral health.

How Do Dental Bridges Work?

Dental bridges work by covering a gap with a fake tooth that is supported by dental crowns on either side. The process starts with a detailed check-up to make sure your teeth and gums are ready for the procedure. If the teeth next to the gap – known as abutment teeth – are strong and healthy, you’re all set to go.

Next up, those abutment teeth get a bit of a makeover. A small amount of enamel is removed so they can comfortably hold a crown. Then, an impression of these teeth is made and sent off to a lab where your custom bridge is crafted by experts.

While you wait for your permanent bridge, you won’t be left with a gap. A temporary bridge is put in place to protect your teeth and keep you smiling. When your new bridge is ready, you’ll come back in to have it fitted. We make sure everything looks good and feels right before fixing it permanently with a special dental cement. And just like that, your smile is whole again, ready for anything.

Dental Bridge FAQs

  • What are bridges made of?
    Bridges are usually made of a precious metal. If the bridge will show when you talk or smile, we bond porcelain to the base to give a natural looking finish. Occasionally, other non-precious metals are used in the base to boost strength.
  • Are bridges expensive?
    Although a bridge may seem costly, they can be a wise investment that will give many years of good service. They also improve your appearance and bite. A bridge uses the considerable skill of the dentist and technician and, in this way, is similar to ordering a piece of handmade jewellery.
  • How long does a bridge last?
    With proper care, including keeping the surrounding teeth healthy so they can continue to provide solid support, a bridge can last for over ten years. It is also important that you attend regular check ups with your dentist so they can keep an eye on your bridge.
  • How many teeth can be on a bridge?
    In most cases, a bridge is used to replace one missing tooth, but they can be used for up to four teeth. If you have multiple missing teeth, your dentist will be able to discuss with you if a bridge is the best option or if another restorative option would suit better.
  • Can I eat normally with a bridge?
    Yes, you can eat normally with a dental bridge. As they are fixed in place, they will not move as you bite like dentures can and you should have no trouble eating. It is important to remember to clean your bridge thoroughly, to avoid gum disease and other issues.
  • What is a dental bridge?
    A dental bridge is a tooth replacement option for one or more missing teeth. It's essentially a false tooth (or teeth) anchored to neighbouring natural teeth or implants. This "bridges" the gap and restores your smile and bite function.
  • How much do dental bridges cost?
    The cost of a dental bridge varies depending on several factors, including:
    • Number of teeth replaced: Single-tooth bridges are generally cheaper than multiple-tooth ones.
    • Material used: Porcelain or zirconia bridges are more expensive than metal alloy bridges.
    • Additional procedures: If you need extractions or other dental work before the bridge placement, it adds to the cost.
