About Bridges

Bridges are dental devices used as a substitute for one or more missing teeth. They are designed in a way that will make them look like natural teeth and can also restore the appearance and function of your teeth.
A bridge works by anchoring to the healthy teeth on either side of the gap. A prosthetic tooth is used to fill the gap, and it will help you to maintain the structure of your smile.

Are dental bridges permanent?

Yes, dental bridges are permanent. You can have your dental bridges removed only with the help of your dentist.

How long can dental bridges last?

Usually, the life span of the dental bridges is 5 to 15 years and sometimes may even be longer.

Will getting a dental bridge affect how I eat and speak?

A dental bridge will help you to chew your food better. Until you become accustomed to having the bridge in your mouth, it is recommended to eat soft foods that can be cut into small pieces.
It will take some time for you to adjust to speaking with your dental bridge. Initially, you may experience difficulty in pronouncing certain words, but over time your speech will improve.

Why should I get a dental bridge instead of an implant?

Dental bridges are an easy, quick and affordable solution to replace missing teeth. The dental bridge treatment can be completed in 2 appointments. To learn more about the benefits of getting a dental bridge, please contact Eastgate Dental Care.

What our clients say

Never felt so relaxed at the dentist before, friendly, welcoming staff who provide an efficient service


I had a fulling and extraction carried out in the same appointment. It was all carried out very professionally and am very happy with the service


Absolutely fabulous! Very nervous customer but was kindly put at ease and supported throughout. Excellent customer care - would gladly go again rather than put off. Thank you!


Excellent, Ashmi and Sophie were so good. I am quite a nervous patient, but was continuously at ease by Ashmi running through the procedure before, during and after. Thank you.
