A dental bridge is used to reduce a gap created by one or more missing teeth; literally bridging the gap. Many types of dental bridges exist but they are all fixed firmly in place and can only be removed by a dentist.
Traditionally bridges have relied on natural teeth to support them however, with advances in science and technology, Currie & Gribben can now offer implant supported bridges, with the advantage of spanning larger gaps.
There are two types of dental bridge:
Conventional – These bridges require some reduction of one or both teeth adjacent to the gap. A custom-made precision bridge is then cemented over the tooth/teeth to completely cover them and replace the missing teeth.
Adhesive Bridge or Resin Bonded Dental Bridges are the quickest, most conservative, and cost-effective solution in reducing that gap in your smile. They rely on good quality and quantity of tooth substance. A metal or porcelain wing is bonded to the inside of an adjacent sound tooth, this carries an aesthetic custom-made ceramic tooth to bridge the gap in your smile.
At Currie & Gribben, we use advanced technology and bridge materials based on Zirconium, which has eliminated the requirement for a metal substructure for your bridge. All ceramic bridges now are the gold standard in providing the ultimate aesthetic result.Finance options available
