A dental bridge is a replacement for a tooth that is securely held in place by crowns on neighbouring teeth.

They are almost as permanent as an implant. As dental bridges need to be attached to crowns to neighbouring teeth this does mean that you will need crowns fitting if you don’t already have them.  If the neighbouring teeth are healthy this may cause unnecessary damage to them, so a dental implant may be a better choice.

Before you know it you’ll be smiling with confidence.

The dental bridge process

  1.  We’ll shape your teeth so they’re ready for the bridge.
  2. When your teeth are ready for the bridge we take a 3D scan to get the measurements we need. We're currently the only dentist in Salisbury with a scanner to take a dental impressions so

    Currently we're the only dentist in Salisbury that can take an impression of your teeth using just our 3D scanner. It’s much less invasive than traditional methods meaning there is no need to place a tray filled with gunk into your mouth. No goop, no gag, no worries. We will photograph your teeth to make sure the laboratories can match your natural teeth.

  3. We have carefully chosen high quality dental laboratories, it’ll take a couple of weeks for your crown to be made. In the meantime we’ll fit you with a temporary bridge to ensure there are no gaps and it looks as good as the final bridge. This will protect the work done to prepare your teeth.
  4. We'll fit your bridge, making sure that it is properly adjusted so you'll barely notice it's there. If we need to we’ll make any final tweaks.
