A Few Missing Teeth

Dental Implant Bridges are one of the most lifelike and natural-looking solutions out there for replacing a few missing teeth. The teeth are porcelain which fit over a metal structure inside the mouth. This gives a secure and realistic solution.

They can be used for anything from 2 teeth to a whole jaw, but the real benefit is that because of the ‘bridge’, fewer implants need to be used. Not only does this mean better surgery for you, it also makes it more cost-effective for what you receive.

It can even be as little as 2 implants for 4 teeth. The historical alternative are traditional dental bridges which do have their downsides.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges have been around for 100 years. Until dental implants came along dental bridges were considered the gold standard treatment for the replacement of single teeth or a number of teeth. Bridges require some sound teeth to attach to – usually either side of a gap.

Advantages of bridges

  • Can achieve excellent aesthetic results
  • Long lived (10 years possible)
  • Feel like real teeth
  • Quick – bridges can be completed in 2 weeks
  • Stay put and don’t move around
  • Fixed in place (not removable like dentures)
  • Less expensive than implants

Disadvantages

  • Require solid teeth to fix to
  • Bridge support teeth have to be drilled down to make room for the bridge-bridge support teeth will often fail in the long term because of the extra strain on them (5 yrs +)
  • Not suitable for replacing more than 2 teeth in a row
  • Not possible if large number of teeth are missing
  • Not possible if teeth missing do not have a solid tooth behind them to act as a back bridge support
  • More expensive than dentures

Cost from £2,900 – We also provide temporary Bridges which cost from £386

Free Consultation

Without seeing things for ourselves, we can’t tell people what their options are.

And so with that in mind, we are happy to offer free consultations, as this is a big decision for most people. We are careful to take budget, comfort and appearance into account when explaining all the available choices and there is never any pressure to proceed, and certainly not on the day.

We set out to be a friendly practice and try to provide everybody with what’s right for them, at an affordable cost. We hope our dentist reviews give that impression.

What they say about us

Painless Professional and Perfect

Painless, Professional & Perfect
I’m so pleased that I chose Winning Smiles when I found that I needed dental implants; the friendly, professional and perfectionist team provide dental treatment of the highest quality.
After a thorough initial case assessment Andrew went through the issues and options with me explaining both the procedures and the costs of a comprehensive course of treatment designed both to address my existing dental problems and forestall any potential issues.
The treatment I chose was provided painlessly and to a truly excellent standard.
I would certainly highly recommend Winning Smiles to anyone who is nervous of dentists and/or is looking for first rate dental service.

Embarrassed by my teeth

I could write a page on how bad my teeth were before I first visited Winning Smiles. I’d got to the stage where my fear of dentists was outweighed by the embarrassment I felt by their condition. A consultation with Andrew put me at ease and gave me hope that something could be done. He doesn’t see the neglect, he sees the end result. Doesn’t berate you like a naughty child (had that a few times in the past!) but treats you as an adult needing his help and expertise.

Now a year on and 2 implants, a crown to fix a twisted canine, new fillings and whitening, I have a set of ‘gnashers’ I can flash with confidence, something I’ve not had since….well ever, really.

Andrew and all at Winning Smiles, I cannot thank you enough for all you’ve done and for curing me of my dental phobia. A customer for life….make that a ‘regular’ customer for life!
