Dental Bridges

Dental Bridges in London - Fill Your Teeth Gap

Dental bridges are a popular tooth replacement procedure in London. Using false teeth that bridge the gap of one or more missing teeth, the false tooth or teeth will be fused in between two crowns that work as anchors. The natural tooth or implant will support the bridges which, with proper maintenance will last for several years.

Our team at Museum Dental Suites have extensive experience in placing bridges. We work hard to offer a relaxing environment and try to improve your oral health by giving you the perfect smile.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

It offers several benefits such as:

  • Improve the appearance for your smile
  • Regain your ability to speak as missing teeth might make speaking difficult
  • Restore your ability to chew and eat food properly
  • Maintain your facial structure by preventing bone loss from the jaw where teeth are missing
  • Prevent surrounding teeth from shifting into the empty space. This may lead to bite problems and other complications

Different Kinds of Dental Bridges

Implant Supported Bridges

Implants can help in the replacement of missing teeth. The implant will be placed into the bone to act as a root. After fusing with your jawbone, the tooth will be fixed to the root. Implant supported bridges can help when you don’t have any teeth on either side of jaws.

Cantilever Dental Bridge

The dentist will use a cantilever bridge for mouth areas as it will help if the false tooth has support on either side.

Traditional Fixed Bridge

The artificial tooth will be fused between the two crowns. This will fill the gap left by a missing tooth and the crowns will be attached. The dental bridge is a great way to replace one or more teeth.

Resin Bonded Bridge

This kind of bridge helps your front teeth, as they need minimal to almost no preparation. The false teeth will be fused to ceramic or metal wings, which may be fixed firmly with abutment teeth by means of resin. The wings will not be visible, and the replacement will look like your natural tooth.

Step by Step Method for Bridges

Dental bridges are permanent pieces that attach to healthy teeth via a dental crown. The process of having a bridge placed usually requires two visits to the dentist.

  • During the first appointment, the dentist will remove a small layer of the tooth to be crowned. An impression or digital scan of the teeth will be made and sent to the lab where the bridge will be manufactured. Making the permanent bridge will usually take three weeks. The dentist will place temporary crowns while you wait for a follow-up appointment.
  • On the next visit, the dentist will remove the temporary crowns. They will then place the permanent crown in position to check the fit of the crown and your bite. If necessary, minor adjustments can be made. Then, using a special cement, the dentist will attach the permanent dental bridge to the teeth.
  • After the permanent crown is fixed in place, patients must be sure to maintain good oral hygiene habits. This is especially important as the health of the surrounding teeth will be vital for the success of the dental crown. Your dentist or hygienist will show you how to floss underneath the bridge and, with proper care, the bridge should last for many years.

Aftercare Procedure:

Certain steps may help to keep your bridges, clean and extend its life. Our dentists suggest following these steps for the proper care of your bridge:

  • Brush your teeth at least two times in a day using fluoride toothpaste.
  • Floss once daily to remove small food particles that might get stuck in between your teeth.
  • Eat a diet rich in vegetables, fiber and fruits.
  • Visit your dentist once in every six months for thorough cleaning.

Can the dentist perform a bridge in one day?

Dental bridges on the same day are a great choice for individuals who have one or more missing teeth, however, they will need to have strong teeth on the sides of the empty area. This is a suitable option for tooth replacement for temporary reasons.

How painful is dental bridge?

The dental bridge may hurt a little but the pain will subside after a few days. If it lasts for one or more weeks, it might be a symptom of a poorly fitted bridge or an infection. You will always need to follow good dental hygiene habits.

Is it always possible to select a dental bridge to replace missing teeth?

There are certain situations when the teeth you need to support your dental bridge might not be strong enough. The dentist will suggest the best plan for replacing missing teeth in each individual case.

Can a dental bridge be worth it?

Yes, dental bridges are certainly worth it. They can help to restore overall functioning so that you can eat, speak and chew properly. It can also prevent other teeth from moving which may cause problems with the bite. It lessens the risk of bone loss by maintaining face structure. The bridges will be cemented permanently so that they are prevented from moving.

reviews-star.pngHighly recommend Museum Dental Suite. Their work is of the highest calibre, professional and friendly. I'm very thankful they for excellent aftercare advice and for making me relaxed and so well treated. I've recommended them to both my family and friends.


reviews-star.pngI have been undertaking a cosmetic treatment (Invisalign) for around eight months here, off the back of a recommendation of a friend who had the same treatment. The professionalism and perfectionism with which my treatment was delivered was outstanding, as was the general service and were all of the staff I encountered.

My dentist Dr. Wahab Shakir was particularly great, with a friendly, reassuring manner and an eye for detail. He always went above and beyond, without ever being asked.

I'm now almost at the end of my treatment and couldn't be more pleased with how treatment has gone. Given the service and end result I'd also consider it excellent value for money.

Keep up the good work Museum Dental Suites!


reviews-star.pngFirstly what a great dentist, all the staff were friendly and very helpful as this was my first time here.

I had called for an emergency appointment due to a sudden cracked tooth and Dr Wahab Shakir despite the end of day fast approaching (30 minutes till close) he said he would see me.

The treatment was not straight forward due to the crack but Dr Shakir after a lengthy time managed to save the tooth/restore it and prevent what I believe most dentists would have done which install a crown - Thank you!

Highly recommend this dentist and service and I am grateful for not only seeing me within an hour but also staying passed closing time and finally for doing a Stella job.


reviews-star.pngThis is a top notch dentist who makes you feel at ease which for someone liked me is important. The staff are very professional, polite, courteous and friendly. Marios, my dentist is extremely patient and cares about your dental care and the service you receive. Just received my new dentures and they have been done to a very high standard and am very pleased. I have nothing but praise for the staff and the treatment/service I received.


reviews-star.pngBest dentist ever hands down. Least painful and least scary experiences here (I'm usually really scared of going to the dentist, and even find the initial anaesthetic injection painful) - they really care about the patient, and making sure you're comfortable, results are also fab. Seriously can't imagine a better dentist!


reviews-star.pngAfter lots of research I was very happy with the results and the service at Museum Dental. 100% I would recommend to a friend. I couldn't be more pleased.
