‘I want a nice smile’-we’ve heard it so many times and we’re well aware the impact your smile can have, not only on your confidence, image, and well being but also on your personality and how the people around tou perceive you as a result.

Cosmetic dentistry and dental health have become an important aspect in everyday people’s lives-we are all increasingly becoming aware of the benefits and positive impact a lovely set of teeth and a great smile can bestow.

In the past, many people may have neglected the health or the appearance of their teeth but this has changed and more and more individuals are now undergoing cosmetic dentistry treatments to improve their teeth and get a nice smile.

Missing teeth is one of the problems that some people may wish to address. There are a number of treatments that are available to fill gaps and replace missing teeth and some of these include dental implants, aesthetically pleasing dentures which are made from more comfortable and natural looking materials, dental bridges.

A dental bridge is one of the options that can bridge the gap between missing teeth.
Dental bridges fill the gap between two or more missing teeth in your mouth with the help of support from adjacent teeth in your mouth so that a false tooth can be attached to replace the missing tooth.

Dental bridges can be made from a variety of materials some of which include metal bonded to metal (conventional bridge) or porcelain bonded to metal.

The replacement teeth used to fill gaps are supported by your dental bridges which in turn is supported by your existing teeth.

A Dental Bridge can be made with both aesthetics and functionality in mind to give you a natural looking smile which also allows you to eat and speak with ease.

Dental bridges require the same amount of care and oral maintenance as your original teeth in order to prolong their lifespan so you will need to make regular trips to both your dentist and dental hygienist.
