Dental Bridge Treatments
We at Cheadle believe that a cosmetic bridge can provide you with a good option to close gaps for front or back teeth. This procedure is fairly standard and involves using the one or two neighbouring teeth to act as a supporting tooth, which is called an anchor or abutment. These will then hold the missing tooth, called a pontic, in place.
Dental bridges can be done as a permanent solution the bridge is securely fixed to the neighbouring teeth and does not, and cannot, be removed once in place allowing you to chew and function confidently.
Fortunately, modern dentistry can solve problems of missing teeth to restore your mouth back to function and cosmetic appeal. We at Cheadle have a huge array of treatment modalities available to help you achieve the final beautiful smile that you want.
Our technology and state-of-the-art advanced systems ensure that we create beautiful natural looking teeth. For us at Cheadle, a final result is where nobody can tell where your missing tooth once was.
What Exactly is a Cosmetic Bridge?
A dental bridge literally bridges the gap created by any missing teeth. Cheadle offers various designs of dental bridges. Some require minimal cutting of the two supporting natural abutment teeth while other types often require the supporting teeth to have full coverage of artificial crowns on them. Bridges can also be supported by dental implants. The designs are often dependent upon the strength of the remaining supporting teeth and the number of missing teeth.
We at Cheadle always aim to create a functional and aesthetically appealing solution that fits in naturally with the other dentition.
The Advantages of a Cosmetic Bridge
- Restores your smile
- An option for replacing missing teeth.
- Once treated no one can tell you had missing teeth.

How long will the treatment take?
Cheadle aims to provide a tailored experience to our patients, therefore our experienced ceramist will handcraft your bridge specific to your bite, gap, and appearance of your neighbouring teeth so the gap closure looks natural. the length of the treatment varies on the design that is chosen, such as, if you choose an implant-supported bridge, this can take longer to complete than a natural tooth supported bridge due to preparatory work required in surgically placing and healing of a dental implant.
