Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. In order to have a bridge, you need at least one tooth or implant crowned to serve as an anchor. Usually, however, you have two – one tooth or implant either side of the space/gap and then another crown suspended between them – just like a bridge over a river!

Bridges are usually made of porcelain fused to metal (strong metal base with tooth coloured porcelain covering it). However all-ceramic or all-gold bridges can also be made. Your dentist will discuss the best option for your individual case.

What You Can Expect with Your Dental Bridge

Bridges are considered “major dental”, and your dentist will ensure you have an appropriate length of time booked in; this will allow time to prepare the tooth/teeth, take detailed impressions and make a temporary bridge. The impression will be sent to a dental laboratory where your custom made bridge will be constructed. Approximately two weeks after your initial preparation appointment, you will need to return for a shorter appointment to have your permanent bridge fitted.

Caring for Dental Bridges

Bridges can last a lifetime; however, as with everything in dental, they can also fail. Just as with your natural teeth, the durability of bridges depends on how well you look after them, so long as you implement good oral hygiene and return for regular dental check-ups and cleans, your bridge should last for many years to come.

If you have any questions about caring for your tooth bridge, speak to one of our team at Redbank Dental for advice.

Dental Bridge Cost

When it comes to the cost of your dental bridge, the price will depend on the level of work that needs to be done on your tooth bridge as well as any other ancillary dental work required to provide a strong foundation for your bridge to be placed. Dental bridges are all alike in their installation, but all different in the sense that everyone’s needs are unique.

As a result, the cost will vary – so please contact our team if you would like to speak with us about your dental bridge cost. We do have payment options depending on how many appointments you need, and you may be able to seek financial support from your private health fund or Medicare.
