Enhance your appearance by replacing a missing tooth
A bridge can also improve your bite and reduce the stress on other teeth
Don’t fancy wearing dentures? A bridge may be the solution you’re looking for. Unlike dentures, a dental bridge is fixed in place and doesn’t need to be removed at night.
Bridges can be treated like natural teeth, so you won’t have to worry about eating certain types of food or suffering from irritation due to sore gums. And as you’d expect from a private dental practice heavily involved in cosmetic dentistry, the results at WeLoveTeeth look natural.
It’s usually not a good idea to leave a gap between teeth. Whether the space is at the front or the back of the mouth, it can affect the way you bite, chew and talk. A bridge is designed to fill the space and provides a lasting and comfortable solution. You can expect good eating function and a natural feel. Bridges are also durable and resist stains.

Porcelain Bonded to Metal
The obvious reason for choosing a bridge is to enhance your appearance by replacing a missing tooth. But a bridge can also improve your bite and reduce the stress on other teeth.
Our ‘porcelain bonded to metal’ bridges offer great looks, incredible strength and good value for money.
Recent advances in dental science allow us to offer pure porcelain bridges with no metal whatsoever. This incredibly strong and beautiful material is the closest you can get to growing a replacement tooth without the expense of a dental implant.
Traditionally, placing a bridge would have caused damage to your healthy supporting teeth, which were filed down to create space, but due to advances in materials we no longer need to remove as much healthy tooth structure.
A very small portion of enamel will be removed on your first visit to allow room for a crown to be placed over the adjacent teeth. Impressions of your teeth will then be made, which serve as a model from which the bridge, false teeth and crowns are made in a dental lab.
We will make a temporary bridge for you to wear to protect the exposed teeth and gums while the bridge is being made. During your second visit, your temporary bridge will be removed and the new all porcelain or porcelain bonded to metal bridge will be checked and adjusted, as necessary, to ensure a perfect fit.
Bridges can also be fitted to dental implants – book your free dental implant consultation at WeLoveTeeth here.
