Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Two crowns are secured to the teeth either side of the gap, and an attached crown replaces your missing tooth, effectively ‘bridging’ the gap.

Home >> General Dentistry >> Bridgework

Bridges are fixed in the mouth, unlike partial dentures which can be removed.

Bridges can reduce the risk of gum disease, help correct some bite issues and even improve speech. Bridges do require a commitment to serious oral hygiene.

If spaces from missing teeth are left unfilled, they may cause the surrounding teeth to drift out of position and therefore throw your bite out of balance, as well as create unsightly gaps between your teeth. Additionally, spaces from missing teeth can cause other teeth and the gums to become for more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease.

Types of Bridges

  • Traditional fixed bridge – to replace one or more missing teeth, using the support of 2 adjacent teeth.
  • Resin bonded bridges – used primarily on the front teeth, the bridge is bonded to the backs of the adjacent teeth with resin which is hidden from view.
  • Cantilever bridges – used when there is only one tooth available on one side of the open space.

I saw Dr Maydelman today, it had been a long time since I attended the dentist and the team made it such a warm and welcoming space, they put my favourite music on and even provided me with a blanket. All the little details where such a nice touch. Dr Maydelman made sure to check in with me throughout the clean making sure I was doing okay. The whole experience was great and eased any nerves I had previously. I would highly recommend!

As my front teeth have slowly been wearing away over the past 10 years I have become less comfortable showing my teeth in photos. I have only been smiling with my mouth closed. This year I decided to change this and did some research into cosmetic dentistry. There were so many positive reviews on CLDC that I made an appointment to see what they could do to improve my smile. After consulting with Dr King, I actually became excited with the possibility that something could be done. So - a few appointments later - my smile is huge! I am so much more confident to show my teeth and could not be happier with the excellent service provided. Thankyou so much CLDC!!!read more

Great team that compliment each other. Clean fresh surgery. All the latest equipment. Friendly. Great location, plenty of transport options. Efficient. Listen to you. Gentle. Thorough. Highly recommend. I usually go overseas for dental but can’t travel because of covid. Really happy I found this place. I travel in from a regional area and they are great appointments to fit in with my travel arrangements.

Entrusting Cosmetic and Laser Dentistry Centre with my dental care is one of the best decisions I have ever made, and Dr King's transformation of my smile has been nothing short of life-changing. Her skill and dedication has given me a confidence I never thought I would have, and achieved a cosmetic outcome that has exceeded my wildest expectations.Before becoming a patient of this clinic, I hated dentists due to childhood traumas and avoided them at all costs, but it's impossible not to like the CLDC team! They've completely changed my attitude, and I am beyond grateful for their support in a long overdue commitment to my dental health.Aside from the brilliant Dr King to whom I owe my beautiful smile, I would like to give a special mention to Deborah, Riya, Meg & Chloe for showing kindness and compassion throughout my treatments. Thank you team; you are all superstars, and I will recommend you to everyone I know.read more

My experience in choosing CLDC has been nothing less than life changing. To be fair I imagine my case was of the more challenging ones, where all other dentists I tried year after year were unable, and some, unwilling to put forward a solution. I'm grateful that I held the belief that something could be done because the team at CLDC have without a doubt exceeded my expectations.I can't speak highly enough of the professionalism and dedication of the staff towards achieving outstanding results, and I am so impressed at Dr.Kings ability to perform her work, she is certainly a master of her craft and is way ahead of anybody I have tried in the past.I highly recommend this dentistry and will be forever grateful to have had the pleasure of meeting each and every person there along my journey, they are all to be commended equally.read more

A most caring and thoughtful assessment of my general dental and gum health. The team at C&L Dentistry were professional and knowledgeable in the latest, most effective treatments and procedures. It's very reassuring to know there is a dental centre around like this one. They're worth travelling to should you live some distance away.

I genuinely got over my fear of the dentist thanks to the awesome dentists at Cosmetic and Laser dentistry. After putting it off for so long, and simple dealing with the pain, I called, booked, arrived and left with no fuss what soever. The in-between was a breeze, and the staff were so incredibly friendly and understanding towards my fears, and reassuring to a point that put me closer to ease than I honestly could have hoped. My fear is gone, as is the pain. Could never thank them enough.

From start to finish, the CLDC team were incredibly welcoming. I had a consultation with DR King, and she is clearly passionate about her work. She described the range of options available and what suited my budget. My second visit, and everything was complete. I am so happy with my smile and how natural it all looks! This gave me the confidence I needed to smile from ear to ear, take photos with my teeth showing, and just have overall confidence. If you’ve thought about it for quite some time like I did, I highly recommend going for a consultation.I cannot thank you all enough. I’ve already recommended CLDC to my friends and family who are amazed at the change! Can’t wait to see you all soon ! - Suziread more

I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Houman. He spent two hours doing a complex root canal and I was very comfortable the entire time. He is extremely skilled, professional and caring and I am so thankful to him for saving my tooth. I was also impressed with the gentle manner in which Dr. Houman asked his Dental nurse, Dinara, questions. What a great learning environment. Thank you CLDC

Well, firstly I must say that the whole family have been attending this clinic for approx 4 years . From all types of issues with teeth to just your general clean to implants, crown etc . For one of us that also has fear and anxiety of dentists too LOLI just can’t find the words to speak highly enough of this clinic. The entire staff is amazing , the service that we have all received has been outstanding. I don’t mind going to the dentist these days as the patience they have when I’m undergoing a procedure they make me feel at ease and relaxed . Their work is of extremely high standard. We travel approx 1 hour each way to come here and it’s totally worth it . Big thank you to everyone at Cosmetic and Laser Dentistryread more

I had the best experience I’ve ever had with any dentist at CLDC. I opted for composite veneers and had them done by Dr Yvonne King.The first person I spoke to when I rang to book a consultation was Meg the treatment coordinator, and right from the start I was warmly welcomed. She is a lovely person, happy, bubbly person and is a pleasure to deal with.Dr Yvonne king did an amazing job of my teeth and completely changed my smile without shaving down any of my natural teeth, she really is amazing at what she does and you will not be disappointed. I had a slight issue afterwards due to my bite and slight chipping but the guys at CLDC were able to fit me in to get it fixed straight away with no hassle at all.Lastly, Dr Daniel maydelman also did a check up for me and this resulted in me needing a couple of fillings and some fissure seals. He is extremely thorough, gentle and really kind. I would highly recommend him as a dentist and will be coming here for my bi annual check ups from now on, despite living 40 mins away.Thank you guys!!read more

Thanks to all at CLDC for making my recent dental treatment a breeze. It was truly a positive experience. Having not visited a dentist for 3 years due to endless negative dental disasters in the preceding years, I was hopeful that CLDC could, and would, deliver what their website claims. Well deliver they did. The staff understood my initial apprehension; listened to what I needed to say, and were very supportive. Their professionalism, skills, and knowledge, helped restore my faith and trust in dentistry once again. Yvonne's skill in cosmetic and aesthetic dentistry achieved an outstanding result, way above and beyond anything I'd imagined. I can finally give a full smile with my newly refreshed gleaming teeth! Feeling so happy, grateful, and confident! Anyone reading this review, and not sure, well just do it, you can't go wrong. Cheers Monikaread more

Two and a half years ago Dr King and staff gave me a smile. Now when I bump into friends, I give them a great big grin and they know just how happy and more confident I am. Your generosity and kindness will never be forgotten.Thank you so much Yvonne and girls for making my life a happier one :)
