Gaps or breaks in the smile are a common occurrence – we have multiple options available at Bank Chambers Dental Practice for our patients with missing teeth or broken smiles.
Bridges are a way to restore a smile with a missing tooth. A prosthetic tooth is used to fill the gap left by the missing tooth with the healthy teeth on either side acting as abutments or ‘anchors’ supporting it.
Replacing a missing tooth or teeth is important for a variety of reasons. Even a single missing tooth can lead to further complications and oral health issues such as misalignment of the remaining teeth, loss of bone density in the jaw, tooth decay and gum disease. It can also cause difficulty for the patient when it comes to eating and speaking, as well as lead to feelings of self-consciousness when smiling.
At Bank Chambers Dental Practice, we’ll be sure to go through all the options available to you when it comes to replacing a missing tooth or teeth.
At Bank Chambers Dental Practice our experienced dentists will discuss the best option for you.
We can usually complete a bridge in just two appointments at Bank Chambers Dental Practice. At the first appointment, we’ll take scans or impressions of the mouth and prepare the adjoining healthy teeth if necessary.
These will be sent off to our trusted dental laboratory partner, where your personalised bridge will be made. Once ready, you’ll return to the practice, and we’ll fit the bridge for you here.
