Dental Bridges

A natural-looking way to restore front and back teeth

Bridge the gap

A popular solution for large gaps and multiple missing teeth, a dental bridge is a prosthetic fitting secured at each end by a crown. Even if your missing teeth are causing no discomfort, gaps can cause you to subconsciously change the way you eat, speak and smile. This can put additional pressure on your other teeth and also take its toll on your health, if you’re avoiding healthy foods such as fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as damaging your self-confidence.

Secure your dental future

In addition to helping solve daily problems caused by missing teeth, dental bridges from 543 Dental in Hull are highly recommended for preventing potential future problems. These include bite distortion, caused by your remaining teeth shifting to fill the gap, and vulnerability to gum disease and jaw pain. Unlike dentures, a bridge is not removable, giving increased support and stability within the mouth.

Custom-made solution

Your bridge will be custom-made in a laboratory and can be made from a range of materials to suit your surrounding teeth, the function of the replacement tooth or teeth and your budget. We can even make bridges so they contain no dark metal in the crowns at all, reducing the risk of any unsightly dark lines appearing near the gum edges. No matter your budget, your dentist here at 543 Dental will work with you to choose the restorative option that will give you the best overall outcome.


How is a bridge fitted?

Your dentist will prepare the teeth either side of the gap and take an impression. The impression goes off to a laboratory where your bridge is made. Your dentist cements your new bridge in place with a special adhesive without the need for a plate or denture.

How long will my bridge last for?

Look after it properly, following your dentist and hygienist’s advice, and you can expect your bridge to last for upwards of 10-15 years.

How do I look after my bridge?

You’ll need to clean under and around your bridge every day to prevent problems such as bad breath and gum disease. Your dentist or hygienist will recommend cleaning products, such as a bridge needle or special floss, and show you how to use them.
