Dental Bridges

Dental Bridges is included under Major Dental.

Dental Bridges is a service provided by a specialist dentist as part of our Major Dental cover. Bridges are a type of dental implant and are used to replace one or more missing teeth by literally ‘bridging’ a gap.

Bridges are custom made to match your teeth. They can enhance appearance by giving you back a full row of teeth, and may help you regain mouth function, the ability to chew food properly and speak clearly.

You might need Dental Bridges if you...

  • Have a series of missing teeth
  • Want to prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
  • Wish to restore your smile
  • Would like to restore your ability to chew and speak
