Dental bridges are similar to dental crowns but are used when a group of teeth are damaged beyond repair or missing.

Preparing Your Teeth

An appointment will then be set for you to have your teeth prepared for the crowns. An impression will then be taken of the teeth. This will be used in the lab to fabricated your custom teeth.

The dentist will then give you temporary teeth so that you don’t have unsightly gaps or prepared teeth.

Commonly Asked Questions

How much does it cost to get a dental bridge?

Each crown unit of a bridge costs from €450, so the total cost of your bridge will depend on how many units you are getting.

Does it hurt?

There is only mild discomfort while numbing the area for a dental bridge. After that it should be pain free.

Are there any age limits?

Ideal candidates are aged 18 and above. There is no upper age limit for dental bridges.

Being able to smile with confidence and taking pleasure in the foods you enjoy most should be something people of all ages can do.

How long does it take?

Once you have had your initial consultation and have been given the treatment plan, you will be given your preparation appointment.

Once we begin the process you should have your finished bridge within 6 weeks.

Do you offer finance?

Yes we have different options available.

Check out our payments plans and Flexi-Fi page for some background information.

Please also discuss this with the front of house staff. They will give you the best advice.

Is a bridge better than an implant?

It depends on each situation.

Some patients are not suitable for implants due to poor bone quality or quantity, so a bridge can be the ideal solution to replace missing teeth.

Do dental bridges come out?

No. Dental bridges are bonded with a special cement, so they stay strongly fixed to your remaining teeth.

Do dental bridgets hurt?

Not at all. The area will be numbed before the procedure.

After the bridge is fitted and adjusted to your mouth, it should feel perfectly confortable.
