Dental Bridges in Basingstoke
If you require a more extensive restoration than a crown or have more than one tooth that needs to be repaired, one good solution is a bridge. Bridges are usually made of a metal base or zirconia ceramic block (a better option for front teeth as this does not stain the teeth, giving a long lasting cosmetic result) 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. A bridge helps to strengthen the prepared teeth and makes chewing and eating easier because it is fixed and can't come out.
Some bridges can also be fixed to your jaw with dental implants, if you have several teeth next to each other that are missing.
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 to prevent bad breath.
