Bridges are usually made of a precious metal. If the bridge will show, porcelain is then bonded to the base. Sometimes, there are other non-precious metals used in the base for strength. In some instances metal free ceramics can be used.
Although a bridge may seem costly they can be a wise investment that will give many years of good service. It will also improve your appearance and bite. A bridge uses the considerable skill of the dentist and technician, and in this way, it’s similar to ordering a piece of hand-made jewellery.
You need to clean your bridge every day, to prevent problems such as bad breath and gum disease. You also have to clean under the false tooth every day. Your dentist or hygienist will show you how to use a bridge needle or special floss, as a normal toothbrush cannot reach.
Don't just take our word for it, read what our wonderful patients have to say about the service they received.
Whitehall Dental Practice will remain open for all dental appointments throughout the national lockdown. Routine dentistry is just as important as emergency care as it helps us to detect dental disease early.
