At Balham Lodge Dental Practice, we offer a wide range of treatments for restoring teeth. Our team is particularly skilled and qualified to deliver these treatments to a very high standard. One type of restoration that is used to replace more than one missing tooth is a dental bridge.
Bridges are made up of artificial teeth, consisting of a precious metal base which gives them a solid structure and makes them hard-wearing. If you need a bridge in your smile line, porcelain is usually added to the base to make it look more like real teeth, giving it a natural appearance that blends in. A bridge helps to strengthen the prepared teeth and makes chewing and eating easier because it is permanently fixed in the mouth. Dental bridges can also be fitted onto dental implants. Once you have a bridge fitted, you will have to take extra care of your daily hygiene regime to ensure it stays plaque free and that you can prevent bad breath.
We look forward to looking after your smile!
