Are you considering a dental bridge in Casuarina?

For patients with missing teeth, we encourage tooth replacement. A complete smile is simply better for chewing and keeping your remaining teeth healthy and in place. Tooth loss promotes dental migration and bite issues that can eventually wear down your teeth.

What Is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge consists of one or two artificial teeth (in the same general location) fixed between tooth crowns—one on either side of the bridge. Your dentist prepares supporting teeth and covers them with crowns. The artificial teeth complete your smile.

You can also talk to your dentist about other types of dental bridges, like an implant-supported option.

We always customise your dental bridge and crowns to complement your smile aesthetics, and your dentist pays close attention to fit and function. Of course, we want your bridge to be just what you want aesthetically, but we also believe it should work as intended.  

Is a Dental Bridge Right for Me?

Before you move forward with any tooth-replacement option, you visit our dental clinic for a friendly consultation with the dentist. This visit determines whether a dental bridge will work for your tooth replacement. Your dentist also answers your questions and addresses your concerns.

At this visit, you can also learn about other tooth replacement options.

Taking Care of Your Dental Bridge

We typically recommend a few amendments to your brushing and flossing routine. For example, a floss threader and specialised cleaning brush can help keep your bridge free of debris and build-up. And these tools promote better gum health, which may contribute to bridge longevity.
