We offer excellent dental bridges in Glasgow by providing custom-made restorations, made with the finest quality materials and the latest technology.
Why would I need a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is a restoration that replaces missing teeth by using the support of natural teeth on one or both sides of the gap. There are many reasons why it is beneficial to replace lost teeth, the most obvious being to improve the appearance of your smile. Missing teeth can also make it difficult for patients to chew properly and speak clearly.
What are bridges made of?
Dental bridges can be made from many different materials. The most common materials used include porcelain and non-precious metal. The base is usually made from the metal and the visible part of the appliance is often made from porcelain matched to the shade of your natural teeth to give a cosmetically pleasing result.
Are bridges expensive?
The cost of the bridge will depend on whether it is NHS or private treatment and also on the material used. Here at our Southside Dental Practice all patients are registered as NHS patients. This means that if the bridge required is suitable to be done as an NHS bridge then this option is available to you. Your dentist at Skye Dental Group can recommend the best materials for your budget and individual preferences during a consultation.
How do I care for my dental bridge?
Your dental bridge must be cleaned and brushed just like any natural teeth. Your dentist will advise you on the best method to keep the bridge hygienic and may also recommend some special cleaning products.
