Horsham Dental Bridges

Bridges are used to fill space created by the loss of teeth. There are two types:
 

Conventional Bridges and Resin Bonded Bridges

A traditional bridge is usually made of porcelain or ceramic that is fused to metal. These are made to be strong enough to replace molars.  To put dental crowns on your adjacent teeth, enamel removal will need to take place. Your dentist will need to remove some of the enamel, removing enamel is irreversible since enamel doesn’t grow back.

This type of bridgework is different to a resin retained bridge because it takes more time and involves ‘crowning’ several teeth. This type of bridge is generally favoured.

Both provide a lab made restoration that adheres to the prepared tooth with special cement filling the spaces where teeth once were.

Resin bonded bridges have a great success rate and provide a lab made restoration that adheres to the prepared tooth with special cement filling the spaces where teeth once were. 

Most commonly Conventional Bridges require the crown being placed on the teeth at either side of the space, ‘bridging’ the gap which can then be filled with porcelain teeth.

Resin Bonded Bridges involve minimal, or no drilling. Rather a wing is bonded to the back of supporting teeth.

At our appointment our dentists will be happy to discuss and explain all options with you. We have finance options available for your convenience.
