At 53 I noticed my teeth and smile were deteriorating rapidly. Through recommendations and several hours searching the internet I came across the Cosmetic Dentists of Australia web site and learnt how this group of dentists have all been trained at one of Americas Premier Dental Training Institutes, the Las Vegas Institute of advanced dental studies. I chose one of these CDA dentists to give me a New Smile makeover, and since then I have never smiled with so much confidence. My new smile changed my life…. I did it….. Why don’t you.?.

Dental bridges

Dental bridges is one of the options to replace missing teeth.  Dental bridges are very successful provided that the abutment teeth holding the bridge are and stay of good health.

What are dental bridges?

Dental bridges are fixed to specially prepared teeth.  These teeth are usually the teeth either end of a gap.  They are made form the same materials as dental crowns.  A dental bridge is used to bridge a gap (missing teeth) between healthy teeth. Teeth on either side of the gap are reshaped and reduced in size. These then act as anchors, or abutments. The dental bridge is attached to these anchor teeth - filling the missing tooth or teeth space.
