Dublin Dentist – Dental Bridges

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are false teeth that are used to replace missing teeth. Unlike traditional removable dentures, a dental bridge is permanent as it’s anchored to the teeth at one, or both, sides using metal bands held in place by resin or cement. They’re an alternative to dental implants for patients who don’t want to have surgery.

Why do I need a dental bridge?

Gaps in your teeth don’t just look unappealing, they can also cause a lot of damage to the surrounding teeth, putting more pressure on them and sometimes straining the jaw. A dental bridge is used to solve this problem, usually by fixing a false tooth in the gap and using the natural teeth to hold it in place.

How are dental bridges made?

Generally, it takes two appointments to prepare and fit a bridge. During the first appointment the adjacent teeth are trimmed down slightly to accommodate their bridge. An impression is taken of the area and the bridge is custom-made by a specialised lab technician according to Dr. Keenan’s instructions. In this first appointment we will also determine the right shade for your bridge and fit a temporary bridge until your new one is ready. At your second appointment, the temporary bridge is removed and the new one fitted. Dr. Keenan will ensure the fit is comfortable and that you are happy with the appearance.

If you feel that you may require a dental bridge please call our dentist, Dr. Keenan, today at Pembroke Dental Ballsbridge, Dublin 4 on 01 668 3242.
