Restore your smile with bridge treatments from our dental experts
For a more permanent and sturdy solution to your missing teeth, opt for dental bridges, fitted by one of our dental experts
What is a dental bridge?
Bridges are a great permanent fix for patients with missing teeth. While partial dentures provide a useful solution for those who prefer removable artificial teeth, a dental bridge provides a replacement that is fixed in place.
A dental bridge will usually be suggested if only a very few teeth need replacing or if teeth are only missing on one side of the mouth.
The base of a dental bridge is normally made from a type of precious metal, while the artificial tooth placed on top is made from porcelain and styled to match the shape and shade of your natural teeth.
A crown treatment is a far more common solution than you may think, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you think you need our help.
What type of dental bridge should I get?
There are a variety of different bridge designs you can choose for your teeth, but most types fall into one of two main categories: conventional bridges or adhesive bridges.
- Look great cosmetically
- Are strong and durable – they should last for over 15 years
- Extensive preparation ensures that the bridges are effective long-term
- Require far less preparation
- The process is kinder to the adjacent teeth
- Usually costs less
- Rely on the adhesive used to bond them in place with a lifespan of 7-10 years
- Look good cosmetically

I would recommend the Portobello Dental Clinic because I felt the price was reasonable, the service was excellent, all the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and the end result looked great.
I am so glad I found the Portobello Dental Clinic and have no hesitation in recommending them to my family and friends. Everyone at the Portobello clinic is professional and friendly and the follow up phone call after treatment, to inquire how I was feeling was much appreciated.
I recently got implants at Portobello. I am very satisfied with the results and I have confidence that if any problems do arise, that they will be dealt with. I have been going to Portobello for about nine years.
