bridgeA dental bridge is an appliance which is permanently fixed in the mouth to replace missing teeth. It uses remaining teeth to support and stabilise the new artificial tooth or teeth.

A bridge is generally made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap – these two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth, and the false tooth/teeth is rigidly attached in between. The false teeth are called pontics.  The bridge can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials.

An enamel-bonded bridge uses a metal or porcelain framework to which the artificial teeth are attached, and then resin bonded to supporting teeth. The dental bridge is constructed by hand by our very qualified dental technicians who are based in Sydney.
