Bridges are a way of replacing a missing tooth with a restoration that is fixed into place. They can usually replace 1-2 missing teeth and are supported by the neighbouring teeth.

FAQs

We recommend waiting up to 6 months after an extraction before having a bridge fitted. This allows time for the gums to heal and settle, ensuring we are fitting the restoration over a solid foundation. For this reason it may be best to have a temporary denture before having the bridge made.

You can have a bridge only if you have enough strong teeth with good bone support. Your dental team will help you decide which is the best way of replacing missing teeth.

Bridges are usually made of porcelain bonded to precious metal. Sometimes other non-precious metals are used in the base for strength. There are also new bridges made entirely of a special type of strong porcelain.

You need to clean your bridge every day, to prevent problems such as bad breath and gum disease. You also have to clean under the false tooth every day. Your dentist or hygienist will show you how to use a bridge needle or special floss, as a normal toothbrush cannot reach.

Whilst effective, bridges are not the only option available. Alternative options you may want to consider include; dentures and implants.

I am really happy with the treatment I received, the new filling looks natural – you can’t even tell there is a filling there, and it has also lasted. The staff were friendly and professional and the service I received was really good.

My family have been with this surgery for years and have received nothing but the best of care. I would recommend this dentist in a heartbeat!

My daughter has received thorough and professional treatment at Evergreen Dental Surgery.

The treatment was excellent – my daughter has a perfect smile. I would highly recommend the dentist to my friends and family. Very good service throughout the treatment.

Despite this not being my regular dental practice I was able to book an emergency appointment at short notice to assess and treat a painful tooth. The staff were highly professional and helpful and when I told them the pain had increased considerably over night they managed to bring my scheduled appointment forward 24hrs. During the visit an X-ray was taken and the dentist talked me through the results, treatment options and recommendations. This was done very clearly. The dentist then proceeded to treat the infected tooth even though the practice was due to close for the day. I was very impressed with the whole experience.

Staff always friendly and professional and I have absolute faith in Michelle, the Hygienist, and Matthew, my Dentist.

The treatment was excellent my daughter has a perfect smile . I would highly recommend the dentist to my friends and family. Very good service throughout the treatment.

Our lad had treatment here for 18 months and the journey from Clacton every time was worth it. Lovely staff , clean environment, appointments on time. Our son’s teeth are amazing now. 5 stars!

The dentist is AMAZING and cannot recommend enough! He’s thorough, knowledgeable, funny and kind and totally put my son at ease throughout the entire procedure.

I’ve been a patient at this practice for over 25 years and I’ve never had any reason to complain . Even when I moved miles away years ago, I still attended as I was happy with the service provided. Now with the restructuring of management etc, I am more than impressed with the service. Matthew and Michelle have excellent standards and advice, warm and welcoming too. Hannah, also has the same approach. I would recommend Evergreen Dentistry to anyone and I am thankful for their care.
