Our own independent Maintenance Plan, unlike the national schemes, allows you to choose how much you pay each month and the level of cover you will receive.

Bridges


Reasons for replacing missing teeth vary from improving your appearance to reducing the strain caused to the teeth on either side of the gap. A gap can also mean your ‘bite’ is affected, because the teeth next to the space can lean into the gap and alter the way the upper and lower teeth bite together. This can then lead to food getting packed into the gap, which causes both decay and gum disease.

Bridges


Sometimes teeth are lost.

The adjacent teeth are prepared.

A Bridge is made which exactly matches the space ...

... and is fitted across the gap.


Fibre Bridge


Sometimes the most sensitive way to fill a gap ...

... is to utilise fillings that already exist in adjacent teeth.

These fillings are removed and matching 'wings' attached to the bridge ...

... which fit into the spaces.


Adhesive Bridge (Fibre 1-Wing)


An adhesive bridge is non destructive.

A bridge is prepared ...

... and 'stuck' to the inside of the adjacent tooth.
