Replace missing teeth without the need for dentures
Don’t fancy wearing dentures? A bridge may be the solution you’re looking for.
Unlike dentures, a dental bridge is fixed definitively in place and doesn’t need to be removed at night. Bridges can be treated like natural teeth, so you won’t have to worry about eating certain types of food or suffering from irritation due to sore gums. And as you’d expect from a practice heavily involved in cosmetic dentistry, the results Cliftonville can offer are very natural-looking – a real enhancement to your smile.
Why it’s important to bridge that gap
Quite apart from the issue of appearance, it’s usually not a good idea to leave a gap between teeth. Whether the space is at the front or the back of the mouth, it can affect the way you bite, chew and talk. A bridge is designed to fill the space left after a tooth has been removed and provides a lasting and comfortable solution.
Here at our Northampton practice, we use only the highest quality materials and latest technology to fit aesthetic bridges. We take special care to match the colour of the bridge to that of the rest of your teeth – so you can enjoy the benefits of a consistent, natural-looking smile.
An easy maintenance regime for your bridge
When we fit your bridge we may need to prepare the teeth on either side of the gap to allow correct fitting, but this isn’t always the case. Once your bridge is in place you should take a little extra care over cleaning but you’ll find that in general it will be easy to maintain.
