There are a few options to close a gap where a single tooth is missing or multiple teeth are missing along the same row. One of the quickest and most cost effective solutions is to close the gap using a fixed Dental Bridge. A Dental Bridge is as the name suggests, a Bridge over the tooth/ teeth that are missing that anchors onto the teeth either side of the gap. The teeth either side of the gap are prepared in order to anchor the Bridge. A Dental Bridge is a fixed non-removable solution unlike a conventional Denture, which is removable. As a general rule, if you have a single tooth missing you will need a 3 Tooth Dental Bridge to close the gap. If you have 2 teeth missing next to each other you will need a 4 Tooth Dental Bridge and if you have three teeth missing along the same row you will need a 5 Tooth Dental Bridge. Simply count the number of teeth missing and add on an extra tooth/ Crown at each end to calculate the size of the Bridge needed. Although the Crowns are joined together to create the Bridge they will appear to the naked eye as individual teeth so the end result is natural in appearance. As a Dental Bridge is a fixed solution, full function is provided with regards to chewing and speaking. The materials used are also varied but preference is given to Metal Porcelain Crowns (PFM), or Zirconium Porcelain Crowns. If you are travelling for a few days we can also use CAD CAM technology to design and mill your new Dental Bridge in the clinic itself without the need for an outside laboratory to complete any aspect of the procedure, saving time and you money.
If you are unsure if a Dental Bridge or a Dental Implant is the best solution for you, please get in touch with us today and we can advise you of all your treatment options and the associated costs of each.
All our Metal Porcelain and Zirconium Porcelain Bridges are crafted in selected A grade laboratories that are known for dental excellence and accuracy. It is important to remember, the skills of the Cosmetic Dentist is only one aspect of your treatment. The quality of the Crowns used in your Dental Bridge, combined with the skills of the Dental Technician is also vitally important to ensure a good end result in terms of fit and aesthetics. Our laboratories use only the very materials that are sourced from across the globe.
It is entirely your choice as to how many visits you would like to make to Turkey, however it will be more economical for you to make one visit for your consultation and subsequently your treatment, should you wish to proceed.
The timeframe needed for each of our treatments is shown on each treatment page. If you are planning multiple treatments or you would like to double check you can get in touch with us and we will advise accordingly and answer any other questions you may have. The timescale advised allows for both your consultation and the completion of your treatment. The usual process involves your first visit to include your consultation and the start of your treatment should you wish to proceed, which will allow plenty of time to complete your treatment before you return home.
There is no charge for any aspect of the consultation to include Panoramic X-Rays and no pressure to proceed with treatment. If you would not like to proceed with treatment following your consultation, no charges will be made and we will return you to your hotel/ accommodation if this service is provided by the clinic.
