DENTAL BRIDGES

DENTAL BRIDGES IN LEEDS

At our luxury practice in Leeds, we offer a number of restorative dental treatments, all designed to improve both your oral health and confidence. Missing teeth can lead to dental complications without treatment. A dental bridge is an excellent solution to restore the function and aesthetics of your smile.

WHAT ARE DENTAL BRIDGES?

Dental bridges are prosthetic devices used to replace one or more missing teeth. This restorative treatment works by creating an artificial tooth and anchoring it to the adjacent teeth for support. Bridges not only fill the gaps left by missing teeth but also help maintain the proper alignment of surrounding teeth, preventing issues such as shifting and misalignment.

WHY CHOOSE A DENTAL BRIDGE?

There are several reasons to consider a dental bridge for tooth replacement.

  • Bridges help restore the ability to chew and speak properly, improving overall oral function.
  • By filling in gaps left by missing teeth, bridges enhance the appearance of your smile, boosting confidence and self-esteem.
  • Bridges prevent adjacent teeth from shifting out of alignment, which can lead to bite problems and further tooth loss.

HOW DO YOU CLEAN A DENTAL BRIDGE?

Good oral hygiene is essential for maintaining the longevity of your dental bridge. While cleaning a bridge is similar to caring for natural teeth, special attention should be given to areas beneath the artificial tooth and around the supporting teeth. Utilising dental floss, interdental brushes and antiseptic mouthwash can help remove plaque and debris, reducing the risk of decay and gum disease. You should also continue to visit our Leeds practice for professional dental cleanings.

HOW MANY TEETH CAN BE IN A BRIDGE?

Dental bridges can be customised to replace one or more missing teeth, depending on your specific needs. While traditional bridges typically replace one or two teeth, larger bridges, also known as cantilever bridges, can span multiple missing teeth with the support of adjacent teeth or implants.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A DENTAL BRIDGE?

The benefits of dental bridges extend beyond their aesthetic advantages:

  • Improved oral function and speech
  • Enhanced confidence
  • Prevention of adjacent tooth movement
  • Preservation of facial structure and jaw alignment
  • Minimally invasive treatment option

WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE FOR HAVING A BRIDGE FITTED?

The procedure for fitting a dental bridge typically involves the following steps:

INITIAL CONSULTATION —

During your visit to our Leeds practice, one of our clinicians will take the time to assess your oral health and discuss appropriate treatment options.

PREPARATION —

The adjacent teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to accommodate dental crowns.

IMPRESSIONS —

Impressions of your teeth are taken to create your custom-made bridges – colour-matched to the rest of your smile for an aesthetically pleasing result.

TEMPORARY BRIDGE —

A temporary bridge may be placed to protect the prepared teeth while your long-lasting bridge is being crafted.

FITTING —

Once your long-lasting bridge is ready, it is checked for fit and comfort before being placed.

FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENTS —

You will be invited back to our state-of-the-art practice in Leeds for a follow-up appointment to help you maintain a healthy smile.
