What Are Dental Bridges?
When you lose a tooth (through decay or injury) you require an immediate treatment to fill the new gap. It is not only important for cosmetic and aesthetic reasons, but it is also important for the health of your gums and bones.
There are different methods of filling these gaps. One method is having a denture which can be a temporary or removable solution. The other more stable and permanent solution is a dental bridge. The dental bridge, as the name suggests, is actually a replica of your natural bridge (found in the mouth), as it requires two supports on either side of the missing tooth. This bridge covers the gap with the help of supports. In between these supports is the false tooth, which fills the place of a missing tooth. The dental term for this is a pontic.
In some instances, a Maryland bridge may be used. In this procedure, wings are fixated to the teeth on either side of the gap. The advantage of this method is that the two teeth on the sides of the gap do not need to be fitted for a crown.
I have been with Accent dental surgery for the last 5 years and have enjoyed excellent service.
Dental surgeons are competent who provide dental implant service along with other like dental bridges. Staff are very polite and respectful. I will recommend their services to anyone based on my experience.
Why Would I Need a Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges offer the following advantages:-
You can maintain your original smile even after losing your front teeth
It will help you with chewing and speaking
It will prevent your teeth from moving (gaps between teeth can lead to crookedness from surrounding teeth)
It will help in maintaining the balance of your bite
How Do You Know if a Dental Bridge is the Best Treatment for You?.
Visit us at Ascent Dental Care Solihull for a free consultation. We will look at your problem and will find out what is required to be done. If a bridge is required for your case, we will prepare a treatment plan with all your suitable options listed and will answer any questions you may have.
After the treatment plan has been accepted the abutments for the bridge will then be prepared. Before the dental bridge can be placed, the teeth either side of the gap will need to be crowned. The crowning will require a small portion of the tooth’s enamel to be removed to allow for the fitting of the crown. Impressions of your teeth will then be taken, ready to be sent to the dental laboratory for the bridge to be made. It will take a couple of weeks before your dental bridge is made but in the meantime we will fit you with a temporary bridge.
Crowns and Dental Bridges

Currently undergoing Invisalign treatment at Ascent Dental in Solihull. My partner has also had root canal and various other treatments and we can’t praise the team highly enough! Friendly, professional and highly skilled, I actually look forward to visiting the dentist which is something I never thought I would say as I used to have a real fear of the dentist chair! The staff are amazing from the minute you walk through the door and I am extremely happy I found Ascent Dental. Thank you!
I had a great experience with Yasmin being my Dentist at Ascent. She reassured me every step of the way throughout my journey. I had my teeth whitened, a new crown fitted and some composite bonding. I was so happy with the final result. Thankyou! 🤍 …

The care I received was exemplary from my dentist Mo he made me feel completely relaxed and exxplained the procedure every step of the way I would most definitely use Dorridge again for any root canal work.
Very professional & efficient.
I have had excellent orthadontic treatment with my Invisalign.
I would highly recommend Ascent Dental.
I had a lingual brace fitted to my top teeth with Ascent Dental last year and I am very pleased with the results. I had some overcrowding and crookedness which has now been resolved and I feel much more confident with my smile! I would definitely recommend this type of brace if you are wishing to straighten your teeth invisibly, no one even noticed that I had a brace unless I pointed it out. The staff were very helpful and supportive during my treatment. I am now considering having my bottom teeth done with the same type of brace.
Very professional dental service, I’ve needed a lot of treatment over the past 6 or 7 months but have to say all the staff are extremely pleasant and welcoming, jas is a top dentist always explaining my options and always extremely professional in his work. Highly recommended
Fabulous experience end to end with Ascent – lovely practice and lovely people who have done a fantastic job with my sons teeth which are now a beauty to behold!! Thank you to all of the team :-)
