A bridge keeps replacement teeth in place by fixing them to the natural teeth on either side of the gap.

If missing teeth are destroying your confidence – a dental bridge might be the perfect solution.


Dental bridges are a popular treatment option for those with missing teeth, bridging the gap between existing teeth for an end result that looks, performs and feels just like your natural teeth.

Unlike dental implants which are fixed into place with a titanium screw directly into the jawbone, dental bridges consist of false teeth, which are bonded to the surrounding teeth on either side of the gap for a full and healthy-looking smile.

Restore your natural smile

Here at Hockerill Dental, we understand how important your smile is. Not only is it a crucial part of your everyday life, but it can also have the power to reinstate your confidence and self-esteem. That’s why we ensure our bridges are tailormade to compliment your existing natural teeth with accurate colour matching, making it almost impossible to tell the difference.

Whilst there are a range of dental treatments on offer for those with missing teeth, the benefits of opting for a dental bridge include:

  • Easy colour matching with your existing teeth colour for a natural-looking smile
  • Ability to help maintain facial structure
  • Improves bite
  • Can help to reduce the risk of bone loss in the jaw
  • Offers a low maintenance option
  • Feels natural in the mouth

Dental bridges for nervous patients

We appreciate that for some, coming to the dentist for any kind of treatment can be daunting and frightening – particularly if it has been a while since you last visited. The good news is that here at Hockerill Dental, the team at our dentists in Hertfordshire are extremely warm, welcoming and understanding.

We have been working with patients across Hertfordshire since 1960, and we are particularly accustomed to dealing with patients who are fearful of the dentist. Our environment is not overly clinical, and instead offers a warm, calming and professional setting for you to talk through your worries with our team.

If you’ve been suffering with missing teeth for some time because of your fears, do get in touch with our friendly team who would be more than happy to put your mind at ease.

A bridge improves the way you look, bite and chew, and as it can be matched to the natural colour of your teeth, you’ll soon forget that you have anything missing. With proper care, they last for many years.


Being told what’s going on in my mouth and explaining it in a language that I could understand was great. To find an understanding and caring dentist is great. He and his team helped me face my fear, they listen and are kind and caring, and that gave me the courage to just do it. I look forward to getting to the point of smiling with confidence and showing my new found smile. Thank you, Stuart.
