Fix Missing Dental Teeth Using Dental Bridges in London, Ontario

Missing teeth can be a source of both functional and cosmetic concerns. They can make it difficult to chew properly and speak clearly and can negatively impact your confidence. Dental bridges offer a reliable and effective solution to replace missing teeth and restore the beauty and functionality of your smile. 


We offer dental bridges made from natural-looking porcelain fused to gold, tooth-colored ceramics, or tooth-colored zirconia to replace single or rows of missing teeth.

What are Dental Bridges and How Do They Work?

A dental bridge is a fixed restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. It is anchored to the healthy teeth on either side of the gap, acting as a bridge over the missing tooth/teeth. The materials used in dental bridges provide a natural look that blends seamlessly with your existing teeth.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

  • Improved Chewing Ability: Dental bridges restore your ability to chew properly, promoting better digestion and overall health.

  • Enhanced Speech: Missing teeth can impact your pronunciation. Bridges improve speech clarity, allowing you to communicate effectively.

  • Restored Smile Aesthetics: Bridges close the gaps from missing teeth, giving you a confident and complete smile.

  • Prevents Teeth Shifting: Missing teeth can cause surrounding teeth to shift out of place. Bridges prevent this from happening, maintaining proper bite alignment.

  • Boosts Confidence: A complete smile can significantly improve your confidence and self-esteem.

Types of Dental Bridges and Their Advantages

There are two main types of dental bridges:


  • Traditional Bridges: These are the most common type of bridge. They are made of porcelain fused to metal and are anchored to the crowns placed on the healthy teeth on either side of the gap. Traditional bridges offer a strong and durable solution suitable for most patients.

  • Cantilever Bridges: These bridges are used when healthy teeth are only on one side of the gap. They are anchored to just one healthy tooth and cantilever, or extend, over the missing tooth space. Cantilever bridges are less common than traditional bridges and may not be suitable for all situations.

The Dental Bridge Procedure (Step-by-Step)

The dental bridge procedure typically involves several appointments:


  • Consultation and Examination: Your dentist will discuss your dental history, examine your teeth and gums, and take X-rays to determine if a dental bridge is the right solution for you.

  • Tooth Preparation: The teeth on either side of the gap will be prepared to receive crowns. This involves removing a small amount of enamel to create space for the bridge.

  • Impression and Temporary Bridge: An impression will be taken of your teeth to create a custom-made bridge. A temporary bridge may be placed to protect the prepared teeth and maintain aesthetics while the permanent bridge is being fabricated.

  • Bridge Placement: The permanent bridge will be carefully placed and checked for fit and bite. Once you and your dentist are satisfied, the bridge will be permanently cemented in place.

  • Follow-Up Appointments: Regular check-ups are essential to ensure the bridge fits properly and your oral health remains optimal.
