In some cases patients do not want to have a removable appliance and for gaps that are not too large we can use a bridge to close this gap. They can be made of porcelain or metal backed for extra strength. Book an appointment and we can assess your suitability for bridge work and the types of bridges available to you.
This young lady's bridge left her underwhelmed. The colour was too 'monochromatic' and the teeth were not in proportion.
Her new bridge, with improved aesthetics and better tooth proportion. The patient was much happier.
I had a lower denture to replace one tooth that I had lost in an accident a few years ago; I hated this denture as it never fitted well. After discussing my options with Mr Crutchley we agreed to try a Maryland bridge as this option was less destructive to my surrounding teeth. The result was amazing denture gone and my smile back to normal.
Three implants placed and bridge. Slight blanching of the gum due to immediate slight pressure of the new work against the gum, much like when you push gently at a nail bed. It will return to pink in less than 24 hours.
