Dental bridges are used to literally bridge the gap left by one or more missing teeth in order to restore the area. There are numerous varieties; basically, they are all fixed and can only be taken out by a dentist. Bridges have historically been supported by natural teeth, but thanks to scientific and technological advancements, Piccadilly Dental is now able to provide implant-supported dental bridges London, which have the advantage of filling in wider gaps. Conventional dental bridge London procedures entail priming the adjacent teeth for a crown; the space is filled in when the final bridge is cemented in place using lifelike ceramic pontic.


A dental bridge is a precision-made, custom piece that is cemented over your implant or tooth to fill in any gaps and cover the entire surface. Dental bridges have historically been characterised as ceramic fused to metal. These kinds of dental bridges are the most commonly used. But thanks to developments in technology, zirconium-based materials are now available, negating the need for a metal substructure for your bridge. Nowadays, all ceramic bridges set the benchmark for the best possible aesthetic outcome.

When it comes to filling in that gap in your smile, resin-bonded dental bridges are the easiest, most economical, and fastest option. They depend on the presence of both sufficient and high-quality tooth substance. To fill in the space in your smile, a metal wing that is bonded to a neighbouring healthy tooth holds an aesthetically pleasing ceramic replacement.


Piccadilly Dental takes care of both practical and aesthetic requirements. Speech and eating are impacted by gaps in the front of your mouth, which also give you a bad cosmetic appearance. Significant dietary restrictions may result from missing teeth further back in your mouth. These lessen the delight and satisfaction that come with eating and social gatherings. It may be possible to replace loose, unstable dentures with a fixed bridge. You will gain a life-altering experience and the self-assurance to always smile when you bridge that gap.

You will meet with one of our dentists for an initial consultation, evaluation, and planning. We will go over the best options for your situation in detail with you. The procedure will begin with the taking of preoperative images and tooth shade. To enable our ceramist to provide a diagnostic wax-up, impressions may be taken. This will enable you to physically see and approve the desired result.


  • - Regaining a smile or mouth that looks natural
  • - Regaining normal speech ability because a lack of teeth can make it difficult to pronounce words correctly
  • - Preserving the natural structure of the face by halting the loss of jawbone where a tooth or teeth are missing
  • - Regaining effective chewing efficiency preventing the emergence of new teeth in the empty space, which could result in complications and bite issues.


  • - The bridge may be jeopardised if the abutment teeth sustain further damage.
  • - Tooth decay could be caused by bacteria and plaque entering the crowns if they don't fit properly.
  • - Your bite may be impacted by the crowns' potential to alter the structure of your teeth.
  • - The bridge may collapse if the abutment teeth are not strong enough to support it.
  • - Dental implants may be required to replace the abutment teeth if the procedure(s) weakens them.


They eliminate the need for local anaesthetic because they require little to no tooth preparation. Together with your personalised prescription and smile design, an impression of the tooth will be taken and sent to our ceramist. Your bridge will be handcrafted by the Piccadilly Dental ceramist according to your unique prescription. After being approved, this is tried in and cemented in. Resin-bonded bridges require less tooth preparation and are less expensive than conventional bridges, but their lifespan is shorter.


The most artificially created alternative to natural teeth replacements are implant retained bridges. There are numerous ways to configure an implant-supported bridge.

The patented lithium disilicate material developed by Ivoclar Vivadent is genuinely revolutionary for the dental sector. Up until now, no material has been able to combine excellent strength, excellent aesthetics, and ease of use into a single product. For complete anatomical restorations, IPS e.max is a lithium disilicate glass-ceramic with optimal translucency, strength, and durability. IPS e.max lithium disilicate has advanced beyond previously available lithium disilicate ceramics as a result of the application of new technologies and optimised processing parameters. In fact, it exhibits a 2.5–3 times higher strength than other glass ceramics. Restorations made of IPS e.max lithium disilicate show exceptional resilience with 360–400 MPa of flexural strength. The monolithic structure is the strongest ceramic system tested to date when it is fabricated to full contour.


The strongest crown material available right now is zirconia. Most zirconia manufacturers usually use tetragonal polycrystalline zirconia that has been partly stabilised with yttrium oxide. The strengths of zirconia materials are usually greater than 900 MPa.


Bonded to a metal substructure is white porcelain. Porcelain gives the white colour, and metal gives strength. not as aesthetically pleasing as Gradia and Emax crowns. The patient has the option to select a non-precious or precious metal substructure. Since precious metal is more biocompatible with gingival tissue (gums), there is generally less chance of corrosion and inflammation. The porcelain eventually breaks off the metal because this is where the bond between the two materials is weak. Additionally, an unsightly smile results from a black line appearing above the crown as gums recede with age. The metal in the crown is what's black. All-porcelain or ceramic crowns do not experience this.

It is widely acknowledged that 1 in 5 to 1 in 8 crowned teeth eventually become non-vital and need a root canal; in certain cases, this can happen years after the original crown was placed.
