Dental Bridges

A bridge is used to replace a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth in a row. A dental bridge works by using two surrounding healthy teeth to hold false teeth over the gap or gaps. Usually the supporting teeth are crowned to increase their strength; however there are various types of bridges that may not include crowning teeth. The dentist will discuss these options with you in your consultation and help you discuss which bridge is more suitable for you.

What are Dental Bridges made out of?

Bridges are made of metal and porcelain or sometimes just porcelain and ceramics. Depending on what is most suitable for you and what you want to achieve, the price will vary. But our friendly dentists will always explain all the options to you so you can make the best decision for you.

What are the benefits of Dental Bridges?

If there is something your not quite happy with your teeth and would like to know your options, please do not hesitate to call us and book your dental assessment today.

→ A bridge can help complete your smile and help build your confidence

→ It can improve your bites function and can help you eat and chew

→ They look just like your natural teeth as the dentist can match your shade

→ They can last many years

→ Can prevent the surrounding teeth being overloaded with the bites force

The surrounding teeth will be prepped the same as they would be prepped for a crown by reducing the sides of the teeth to fit a crown over the top and impressions are taken. The dentist will place a temporary bridge until the permanent bridge comes back from the lab (tailor made for you) and will be cemented on.

The only downside with bridges is that the surrounding teeth will require healthy tooth structure to be shaved down for the crowns to be fitted. As always, your natural teeth will always be the best set you will ever get and we will always work with you to help maintain your oral hygiene (to save your natural teeth for as long as possible). We will always discuss the most suitable options to meet your needs.

Testimonials

Brilliant service! I wasn’t a patient at this practice when I phoned for my initial appointment, but I had a dental emergency and was not getting the right care at my previous practice. Stourcote Dental fitted me in for an appointment fast, identified what needed to be done, and sorted me out. They were friendly and caring from start to finish. Everyone I dealt with was lovely, I’ve never had such great dental care. I’m terrified of going to the dentist so extra special thanks for taking care of me. I’ll be a lot less nervous when I come back!

Mani and Abby looked after me today and did a marvellous job. Very attentive and cheerful looking forward to seeing their faces in six months at my check up. Keep up the good work.

Excellent service and COVID safety all in place. On time appointment and friendly team as always.

Sue, Working Feedback

I have suffered some awful mouth sores over the past week and I was pleased with the very prompt appointment today (Monday) that I was provided with, having raised an online request only on Saturday.
On Saturday evening, one of the doctors (Dr Jandu?) phoned me and helped me with a recommended course of action and he followed through by making me the appointment with Matthew Walker today. I was greeted in a friendly, upbeat manner by the dental nurse and I felt very reassured after today’s visit. Mr Walker will phone me in a week, to see how things are progressing.
Overall an excellent level of care and all “very joined up”.

I’ve been a patient and my children have too and i must say that the reception staff especially Ann are wonderful. So helpful, friendly and polite all the time. Their customer service is second to none.
Viz the dentist I’ve been seeing is amazing so kind and caring and a perfectionist. Boys treatment under NHS has been very slow. There was an admin error at the beginning which delayed their treatment but not sure who’s fault that was but Ann has been a great help moving this forward. Obviously due to Covid its not a priority by any means. Thank you for your hard work and adapting so swiftly all the time.

I recently joined Stourcote after a traumatic experience with another dentist. From the outset they were really welcoming & listened to my concerns & demonstrated that they wanted to help.
I’ve now seen Manisha a few times & even though I’m a ridiculously nervous patient (I started crying as soon as I sat in the chair today), she was so lovely and understanding. I felt safe, in control & comfortable.
I will never enjoy visiting the dentist but Stourcote have made it manageable for me, so I can’t recommend highly enough.
