Dental Bridges

At The Dental Centre in Coffs Harbour, we strive to provide our patients with the best modern family dentistry services. A dental bridge from our experienced dentists offers significant benefits for patients with a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth:

  • Restore normal speaking ability.
  • Reinforce facial structure.
  • Prevent remaining natural teeth from drifting out of position.


What is a Dental Bridge?

Dental bridges are one of the most popular treatments for replacing missing teeth. A bridge is an artificial tooth (or multiple teeth) held in place by  healthy neighbouring teeth, known as abutment teeth. The false tooth, called a pontic, sits between the two abutment teeth and is cemented in place to fill the gap left by your missing tooth/teeth. Dental implants can also support bridges for added strength and stability.

Types of Bridges Available at The Dental Centre

We offer different dental bridges depending on your unique situation.
Traditional fixed bridges are created using porcelain crowns placed on neighbouring healthy teeth and a false pontic suspended between them.
Cantilever bridges are used when adjacent healthy neighbouring teeth are only on one side of the gap.
Maryland bonded bridges (resin-bonded bridges) feature porcelain wings secured onto neighbouring healthy teeth.
Implant-supported dental bridges – an implant is surgically inserted into the jawbone; this acts as an anchor point for several false replacement units suspended across the implants which act as the abutments instead of adjacent natural teeth.

The expert team at The Dental Centre will discuss each type of bridge with you during your consultation visit. As a result, you can make an informed decision about which option best suits your needs.
