Dental bridges

Serving patients throughout Caversham, Emmer Green and Reading

A dental bridge is a permanent fixture comprising one or more false teeth and is used to fill the gap after the natural tooth has been lost through injury or extraction.

Beautifully crafted in porcelain just for you, our bridges are extremely durable, correct bite issues, improve speech and are a good way to get your smile back on track.

Bridge treatment at Prospect Street Dental Practice takes two appointments. At the first appointment, we minimally shape the teeth in either side of the space, take a special mould of the teeth and place a customised temporary bridge.

About 14 days later at your second appointment, we will remove the temporary bridge before carefully fitting your new bridge. Your dentist will check for your comfort and make any small adjustments to ensure a perfect fit.

Reasons to consider dental bridges:

  • Restore the appearance of your smile
  • Filling a gap will prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of position and coming loose
  • Preserves your ability to chew and speak normally
  • Ensures an even bite which will help preserve the remaining teeth

If you have missing teeth, talk with your Prospect Street Dental Practice dentist to learn more about bridges and other restorative options. We’ll help find the best solution for your individual needs.
