Dentists at Sky Dental Clinic can offer dental bridges in Bexleyheath to help you get your smile back and return to the comfort of your regular lifestyle. A bridge attaches the surrounding teeth to create the appearance of a single tooth, replacing missing teeth and improving the appearance of your smile. As with all restorative treatments, dental bridges are designed to last forever, so you won’t have to worry about future problems down the road. To learn more about this option, contact our Bexleyheath dentist today!
A dental bridge is a fixed or removable appliance used to fill in a gap where there are one or more missing teeth. A missing tooth doesn’t have to mean an unsightly smile—you can replace lost teeth with dental bridges crafted from porcelain and other materials to create a new (and improved) smile. Advanced technology allows us to create natural-looking replacements for your teeth; call us today to schedule an appointment!
Most dental bridges are made of a gold alloy; however, more dental bridges today are being fabricated with porcelain fused to metal. This is because porcelain dental crowns help create a seamless look that more closely matches your natural teeth.
The process of creating a dental bridge involves taking an impression of your teeth, which is then sent to a lab so that we can fabricate your new tooth. We send you home with a temporary bridge while we wait for your permanent replacement tooth to be made. This usually takes around 2 weeks, after which we will call you back into Sky Dental Clinic to have the bridge fitted. In order to know if you’re a good candidate for dental bridges, make an appointment for a consultation at Sky Dental Clinic in Bexleyheath today!
The two main factors for how long it takes for a dental bridge to settle are your bone health and activity level. On average, a dental bridge can take three to four months to settle. Those with high bone density or who are very active might need longer. In these cases, it is important to be patient so as not to harm your gum tissue or tooth roots from strain. There is one thing you can do in order to help speed up settling time: avoid chewing hard foods. This also depends on how closely your dentist follows through with every step of treatment and also on how much time you will have to wear them (if they’re permanent).
Usually, a dental bridge can last anywhere from 5 to 7 years, depending on its material and wear. While there are many materials that make up a dental bridge, they all tend to be more durable than other restorations, like veneers or crowns. The biggest determinant of how long a bridge lasts is how you care for them. Good hygiene and regular check-ups with your dentist will help ensure your smile stays beautiful throughout its lifetime!
While dental implants are a far more cost-effective choice for long-term dental work, dental bridges can still be an affordable option. If you’re considering a dental bridge, get in touch with us, and we will provide you with advice on the treatment and how much your dental bridge will cost.
Many dental bridges require routine maintenance to avoid needing repair or replacement. There are a number of reasons your bridge might need repair, including broken dental crowns or damage to supporting teeth. The best way to avoid problems with your dental bridge is to have regular check-ups with Sky Dental Clinic in Bexleyheath. All you have to do is call us and make an appointment for a consultation at our clinic.
