Dental Bridges Port Elizabeth

Dental bridges are a type of restorative dental treatment used to replace one or more missing teeth. 

They consist of one or more artificial teeth, called pontics, which are anchored in place by adjacent natural teeth or dental implants

Dental bridges are designed to “bridge” the gap left by missing teeth, restoring both the function and appearance of the patient’s smile.

At Every Smile Dentistry in Port Elizabeth, we offer comprehensive dental bridge services to restore your smile and oral health. 

Whether you’re missing one tooth or several, dental bridges can be an excellent solution to regain function and confidence in your smile.

Types of Dental Bridges

  1. Traditional Bridges: The most common type, consisting of a pontic held in place by dental crowns cemented to adjacent teeth.
  2. Cantilever Bridges: Similar to traditional bridges, but supported by only one adjacent tooth.
  3. Maryland Bridges: A conservative option bonding the pontic to adjacent teeth using metal or porcelain wings.
  4. Implant-Supported Bridges: The most stable option involving surgically placed dental implants to support the pontic.


Before undergoing a dental bridge procedure at Every Smile Dentistry in Port Elizabeth, your journey begins with a comprehensive examination by our skilled dental team. 

This examination includes:

  • Diagnostic Imaging: We utilize advanced digital x-rays and other imaging techniques to assess the condition of your teeth, gums, and underlying bone structure. These images provide valuable insights into the extent of tooth loss and any potential underlying issues.
  • Impressions and Measurements: Precise impressions of your teeth are taken to create a custom-made dental bridge that fits seamlessly within your mouth. Our dentists carefully measure the size and shape of your teeth to ensure the bridge matches your natural dentition and provides optimal function and aesthetics.
  • Evaluation of Oral Health: We evaluate your overall oral health, including the health of your remaining teeth and gums. This assessment helps us determine the most suitable type of dental bridge for your specific needs and ensures the longevity of the restoration.
  • Discussion of Treatment Options: Based on our findings, we discuss the various treatment options available to you, including the type of dental bridge that best meets your requirements. We take the time to address any questions or concerns you may have, empowering you to make informed decisions about your dental care.


Here’s what you can expect during the procedure:

  1. Anesthesia: Before beginning the procedure, local anesthesia is administered to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment process. For patients who experience anxiety or have a low pain threshold, additional sedation options may be available to help you relax.
  2. Tooth Preparation: Once the anesthesia has taken effect, the adjacent teeth (abutment teeth) that will support the dental bridge are prepared. This involves removing a small amount of enamel from these teeth to create space for the bridge and ensure a secure fit.
  3. Impressions: After tooth preparation, precise impressions of your teeth are taken using dental putty or digital scanning technology. These impressions capture the exact dimensions of your teeth and gums, allowing for the fabrication of a custom dental bridge that blends seamlessly with your natural smile.
  4. Temporary Bridge Placement (if necessary): In some cases, a temporary bridge may be placed to protect the prepared teeth while the final bridge is being fabricated in a dental laboratory. This temporary bridge helps maintain proper tooth alignment and function until the permanent bridge is ready for placement.
  5. Fabrication of the Permanent Bridge: The impressions taken during your appointment are sent to a dental laboratory, where skilled technicians craft your custom dental bridge with precision and attention to detail. Our dentists work closely with the laboratory to ensure the final bridge meets our exacting standards for fit, function, and aesthetics.
  6. Final Bridge Placement: Once your permanent bridge is ready, you return to our office for its placement. Our dentists carefully evaluate the fit and appearance of the bridge before cementing it into place using dental adhesive. Any necessary adjustments are made to ensure the bridge feels comfortable and functions properly within your mouth.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

  • Improved Oral Function: Chew and speak properly, enhancing your ability to enjoy food and communicate confidently.
  • Enhanced Appearance: Restore the natural shape and appearance of your smile, boosting your self-esteem.
  • Better Oral Health: Prevent gum disease and other issues by restoring proper oral function and alignment.
  • Long-lasting Results: With proper care, dental bridges can provide a stable and durable solution for missing teeth.


Following proper aftercare instructions, including regular brushing, flossing, and avoiding hard foods, ensures the longevity of your bridge. 

Regular follow-up appointments with our team are essential for maintaining optimal oral health.

The staff is sooo friendly. I have a big fear when it comes to dentists, but my dentist calmed me down so well and talked me through what she was going to do and what she was doing while busy. I had an infected tooth that she extracted. I felt no pain and it was over within seconds. I will definitely go back.

The place is overall beautiful and the reception guys are too friendly. My only issue was the doctor. 1st she didn’t greet or introduce herself I had to ask the assistant what the Doctors name was. Also she was not patient with my son and seemed irritated most of the time. I however have to give thanks to Musa who was the assistant that guy is amazing and super patient he made my son super comfortable and explained every process to me and my son.
