Depending on the position of the remaining teeth, dentists have various possibilities to eliminate spaces. Bridges are a dental prosthesis which fixes the replacing dentures to the adjacent remaining ones. Bridges with a ceramic cover always have a metal base called a metal structure. It can be made from precious metals (being the most perfect) or non-precious metals. The ceramic cover sits on the metal base making it look aesthetically pleasing. The metal structure gives the crown its stability and long life.
The bridge is made by constructing crowns on the teeth either side of the gap and joining them together with a false tooth. It is made in the laboratory and cemented into place using a special dental adhesive. Once in place the bridge cannot be removed. You can usually have a bridge if you have enough strong teeth with good bone support.
1. You will be given a local anaesthesia around the working area before preparing the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth. For the bridge to work effectively the teeth will need to be reduced in size and shaped to both support the bridge and to make sure it doesn't protrude.
2. Once the teeth are prepared, your dentist will take an impression and a colour match from surrounding teeth. The bridge will then be made in the laboratory by a dental technician. A temporary bridge will be fixed into place ready for you second appointment.
3. You will be given another local anaesthesia to numb the area and then the dentist will remove the temporary bridge. Once you and the dentist are happy with the fit and positioning of the bridge, it will be cemented into place.
