Dental Bridge

If you're missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge could fill the gap and restore the look and function of your smile.

At Swish Dental, we can fit a permanent dental bridge to replace a single tooth or several teeth in a row. The dentists in Everton Park and Mitchelton can design your custom restoration to blend in with the rest of your teeth for a natural appearance.

To find out if you're suitable for a dental bridge, get in touch today to book a consultation at your nearest Swish Dental clinic.

About Swish Dental

Is a dental bridge right for me?

A missing tooth can affect more than just your appearance. It can also cause the teeth on either side of the gap to shift and become crooked, making them more difficult to clean and increasing your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. That's why we recommend that you always replace missing teeth.

A fixed dental bridge is a more permanent option than a removable denture for replacing a lost tooth. It's also a less intensive option than a dental implant, although it may not last as long. We'll discuss all your tooth replacement options at your consultation.

What is the dental bridge procedure?

The dentists in Everton Park or Mitchelton will explain what the treatment involves during your consultation. We'll also tell you about the other tooth replacement options we offer, so you can make an informed decision.

If you choose a dental bridge, we'll take x-rays of your mouth to help us design your custom bridge. We'll also take photos of your teeth so we can match their shade as closely as possible.

Your fixed bridge will be supported by crowns fitted over the teeth on either side. After preparing these neighbouring teeth by reducing them in size, we'll take an impression of your mouth that will be used to design your custom crowns and bridge. These will be manufactured in a dental laboratory. We'll fit you with a temporary dental bridge and crowns to wear until your next appointment.

When your permanent dental bridge is ready, usually 1 to 2 weeks later, we'll schedule a final appointment to make any final adjustments and cement your crowns and bridge into place.

How can I look after my bridge?

Your permanent dental bridge should last 5-10 years with good care. Taking good care of your teeth and gums by brushing and flossing every day and following a healthy diet will help to prevent problems such as tooth decay and gum disease that can cause a dental bridge to fail.

While your temporary dental bridge is in place, we recommend that you avoid overly hard, crunchy or sticky foods, as these could cause it to become damaged or dislodged.

What are the risks?

Fitting a dental bridge is a non-invasive procedure, so there shouldn't be any risk of infection.

The teeth on either side may feel more sensitive after being prepared for crowns, but this should go away within a few days or weeks.

If you have any unexpected symptoms, you should make an appointment with our dentists.

What does a tooth bridge cost?

What does a tooth bridge cost?

The cost of a dental bridge depends on how many teeth are being replaced and whether any other treatments or sedation options are needed.

We'll give you all the information you need about costs, payment options and what your insurance covers at your consultation.
