What are Dental Bridges?

Denticare, where we bridge gaps not just in your teeth, but in your confidence and quality of life. Located in the vibrant heart of Dublin 3, our clinic specialises in providing top-tier dental bridge solutions, ensuring you leave with a smile that feels and looks natural.

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Bridges are cemented to the teeth surrounding the empty space.

When you have one or more missing teeth, then a dental bridge may be used to restore the resulting gaps. The dental bridge is basically a false tooth, beautifully created from porcelain that fills the gap and is supported by adjacent teeth or implants.

One of the most crucial skills in the placement of a dental bridge is to create the illusion that the missing tooth emerges from gum just a natural tooth. Our skills in cosmetic dentistry, gum manipulation and our in-house implantologist can combine ensure no-one will know that you ever had a missing tooth!

The process of getting a Dental bridge is the following:

The abutments on supporting teeth are prepared. It involves removing a small portion of the other teeth to allow room for crown to fit. 

Until your finished bridge is ready, a temporary bridge is made to protect the exposed teeth and gum.

After the lab work is done, your new dental bridges can be cemented into place.

6 reasons why you should consider getting a dental bridge

Frequently asked questions

A dental bridge is a custom-made replacement for one or more missing teeth that literally “bridges” the gap. It consists of a false tooth (or teeth), known as a pontic, which is flanked by two crowns that are cemented onto the natural teeth or implants adjacent to the empty space.

You may need a dental bridge if you have one or more missing teeth. Bridges not only restore the appearance of your smile but also prevent remaining teeth from shifting, which could lead to bite or jaw problems. A consultation with our dentists can determine if a dental bridge is the best solution for you.

Denticare offers several types of dental bridges, including traditional fixed bridges, cantilever bridges, Maryland bridges, and implant-supported bridges. The choice of bridge depends on the location of the missing tooth, the health of adjacent teeth, and personal preferences.

The process typically requires two visits to our clinic. The first visit involves preparing the abutment teeth and fitting a temporary bridge, while the second visit is for fitting the permanent bridge. The entire process is usually completed within two weeks.

Care for your dental bridge as you would your natural teeth. This includes daily brushing and flossing, as well as regular check-ups and cleanings at Denticare. Proper care can extend the life of your bridge for 10 years or more.

No, dental bridges are designed to look like your natural teeth. Our expert team ensures that the shape, size, and colour of the bridge match your natural teeth, making it virtually indistinguishable from them.

Alternatives include dental implants, which are surgically inserted into the jawbone and topped with a crown, and partial dentures, which are removable devices that replace multiple missing teeth. Our dentists can help you decide which option is best for you based on your dental health, preferences, and budget.

The cost of a dental bridge at Denticare varies depending on the type of bridge and the number of teeth being replaced. We strive to offer competitive pricing and accept a range of payment options, including PRSI benefits. For an accurate quote, please contact us or book a free consultation.

I've only ever had positive experiences at Denticaredublin, and I'm someone who loathes dental visits. Dr Nikolett is particularly impressive, as professional a dentist as you could find. Probably the best I have come across. Definitely a dental clinic I can wholly and thoroughly recommend.

This was my first time at Denticare. While in December I was not able to easily book an appointment (I guess everyone wanted to show their white pearls at their best for the Christmas parties), now in February I got an appointment quickly. The place is really easy to find, just be careful, once inside you need to go upstairs! Everyone here is really friendly and professional. I had the scale and polish with the teeth whitening. Very precise clean up of my teeths, I can't remember her name but she took such a good care of me, while being so kind. The whitening treatment was really gentle on my gums, no irritation at all. However, was enough to show a good difference! Overall I am satisfied with the service they provided and I can totally reccomand this practice :)
