What is the purpose of a dental bridge?

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

A dental bridge is a dental restoration that usually includes two dental crowns and a replacement tooth (pontic) that fills the gap left by your missing tooth. The dental crowns are secured to adjacent teeth on either side of the empty space and provide support for the artificial tooth. A dental bridge can keep your remaining teeth from shifting, in addition to completing the appearance of your smile.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

To all our valued patients,

We have some news on the COVID-19 front. You may be aware of the recent changes to our restrictions that have been passed down this week regarding Dental Practices. As of Friday the 8th of May we will be operating at LEVEL 1 COVID-19 restrictions. All dental procedures are eligible at this level.
Additional screening and infection control procedures will still be in place including the use of hand sanitiser, pre-procedural mouth rinses and social distancing. We will explain this on an individual basis prior to your attendance at our surgery.
