Patients Seen Immediately: Dental Bridges

If your dental bridge is hurting, ill-fitted or needs replacing, the Gentle Dental can provide emergency appointments to relieve your discomfort and correct your oral problem quickly and easily.

Dental bridges are designed to bridge gaps in your mouth and involve replacing a missing tooth with a false tooth bonded to the natural teeth on either side of the hole.

However, they are susceptible to breaks and can cause oral pain and contribute to developing conditions that can weaken your oral state.

Our dentists work alongside technicians during each step of the procedure so that the dental bridges function perfectly and look natural.

Here at Gentle Dental, our experienced dentists are always available to provide 24/7 emergency or same-day appointments.

Although dental bridges are very sturdy, they may weaken, chip or crack.

While a broken bridge may not be as painful as a natural broken tooth, the break will allow bacteria to enter your dental bridge, which can lead to further oral hygiene problems.

So, the most important thing to do if your dental bridge breaks is to book an appointment with us as soon as possible.

This is to prevent any further dental complications and ensure the mouth remains in a healthy, good oral state.

Infections in your bridge

A tooth under a dental bridge can become decayed or infected.

A tooth infection is usually caused by a difficulty in cleaning under the bridge, or as a result of the bridge being fitted incorrectly, which allows bacteria and acid to build up around the area.

An infected tooth usually occurs because of a gum infection – and these are often quite serious.

If you think you may have an infection or decay under your bridge, it is best to book an X-ray appointment with us so that one of our dentists can assess the area in order to advise you.

As the decaying of teeth is a slow process, we recommend that you have an X-ray at least every 24-months in order to identify any problems at an early stage.

Talk to one of our friendly dentists to set up a routine X-ray appointment.

Same-day bridge repairs

We offer same-day dental bridge restorations to our patients. This is to guarantee that our patients are not in any pain for longer than they need to be.

As we have a special interest in restorative dentistry, the Gentle Dental use the latest and most advanced technology to repair broken bridges.

Ceramic CEREC restorations, from start to finish, only take a few hours.

CEREC dental bridges are created by using 3D scanning capabilities to cut a bridge from a single block of dental ceramic. Once the restoration has been created, one of our dentists will attach the bridge using dental composite cement.

If you have a broken dental bridge, or if you require a same-day treatment for any reason, book an appointment here or call us on 020 8224 7562. We are accepting new patients.

Resin-bonded dental bridge

Resin-bonded or resin-retained dental bridges are a less invasive alternative to CEREC restorations.

These restorations rely on dental cement for stability and are fitted to the surrounding teeth with metal or plastic attachments. Though they are less invasive, they are often considered temporary.

If this is the first time you need a bridge restoration, and you are not willing to have the surrounding teeth shaved down, then a resin-bonded dental bridge may be the best solution for you.

We always put our patients first, so if you would like to discuss your requirements and options, book a consultation with one of our highly professional dentists here.

Can't thank this practice enough for all their help. I don't post reviews very often, so when I do, it's because an impression has been left! Dr Ali saw me at short notice to help fix a broken tooth. The nurse (I think her name was Danni) was so helpful and kind, as were the rest of the team. Thank you for being there for me in my hour of need (the same day i asked for an appointment!)

I’m so happy to find this practice. I suffer from anxiety and high sensitivity to pain. It was very stressful for me going to dentist after years of fear. The team not only make me calm and welcome but I FELL ASLEEP during treatment with Dr Marshall ! So understanding and caring. Thank you!

I have been using this dentist for well over a decade and can honestly say my teeth would be in a far worse situation if wasn’t for the Gentle Dental practice.My most recent visit was for a filling .. barely felt the injection!I would highly recommend this dentist to anyone, but especially if you’re teeth require a high level of care like mine.

This place was recommended to me by family and for a nervous patient the best experience. The reception welcome is cheerful and friendly, beautifully modern area with hot drinks and water on offer.I needed implants, crowns and bridges followed by whitening, so lots of appointments. My dentist Mr Ali Rafai was superb from start to finish, so professional and personable. Throughout the whole process I was cared for wonderfully plus lots of laughs along the way. The constant care during appointments was very comforting, no rushing, and I knew I my needs were Mr Rafai's priority. Plus check up call the next day without fail to make sure everything was going well.Absolutely deserves five stars!

Fantastic experience with Ali. It took 18 months including bone grafting, removing and replacing failed dental implants, invisaline for my bottom teeth which were all over the place and some veneers but now I'm delighted with the outcome.Ali was always very clear about how this wasn't an overnight solution in an honest and forthright manner which gave me confidence that he would deliver results.I was offered several overnight solutions from other dentists locally at a fraction of the cost but when I see how much effort and detail that went into my plan, I know i made the right choice.
