If your dental bridge is hurting, ill-fitted or needs replacing, the Gentle Dental is able to provide emergency appointments to relieve your discomfort and correct your oral problem quickly and easily.

Dental bridges are designed to bridge gaps in your mouth and involve replacing a missing tooth with a false tooth which is then bonded to the natural teeth on either side of the gap.

However, they are susceptible to breaks and can cause oral pain and contribute to developing conditions that can weaken your oral condition.

Our dentists work alongside technicians during each step of the procedure so that the dental bridges function perfectly and look natural.

Here at Gentle Dental, our experienced dental specialists are always available to provide 24/7 emergency or same-day appointments.

Call 020 8224 7562.

24-hour emergency appointments

Although dental bridges are very sturdy, they may weaken, chip or crack.

While a broken bridge may not be as painful as a natural broken tooth, the break will allow bacteria to enter your dental bridge, which can lead to further oral hygiene problems.

So, the most important thing to do if your dental bridge breaks is to book an appointment with us as soon as possible.

This is to prevent any further dental complications from taking place and ensuring the mouth remains in a healthy, good oral state.

Infections in your bridge

A tooth under a dental bridge can become decayed or infected.

A tooth infection is usually caused by a difficulty in cleaning under the bridge, or as a result of the bridge being fitted incorrectly, which allows bacteria and acid to build up around the area.

An infected tooth usually occurs because of a gum infection – and these are often quite serious.

If you think you may have an infection or decay under your bridge, it is best to book an X-ray appointment with us so that one of our dentists can assess the area in order to advise you.

As the decaying of teeth is a slow process, we recommend that you have an X-ray at least every 24-months in order to identify any problems at an early stage.

Talk to one of our friendly specialists to set up a routine X-ray appointment.

Same-day bridge repairs

We offer same-day dental bridge restorations to our patients. This is to guarantee that our patients are not in any pain for longer than they need to be.

As experts in restorative dentistry, the Gentle Dental use the latest and most advanced technology to repair broken bridges.

Ceramic CEREC restorations, from start to finish, only take a few hours.

CEREC dental bridges are created by using 3D scanning capabilities to cut a bridge from a single block of dental ceramic. Once the restoration has been created, one of our dentists will attach the bridge using dental composite cement.

If you have a broken dental bridge, or if you require a same-day treatment for any reason, book an appointment here or call us on 020 8224 7562. We are accepting new patients.

Resin-bonded dental bridge

Resin-bonded or resin-retained dental bridges are a less invasive alternative to CEREC restorations.

These restorations rely on dental cement for stability and are fitted to the surrounding teeth with metal or plastic attachments. Though they are less invasive, they are often considered temporary.

If this is the first time you need a bridge restoration, and you are not willing to have the surrounding teeth shaved down, then a resin-bonded dental bridge may be the best solution for you.

We always put our patients first, so if you would like to discuss your requirements and options, book a free video consultation with one of our highly professional dentists here.
