Bridge Dental Work: Closing the Gap in Style

When you lose a tooth, however that may happen, it’s not a nice feeling. Gaps in your mouth look a bit odd and you may be afraid people are bound to notice and will think you don’t take care of yourself. It’s just not a good look, anyway. You’re not some hillbilly stuck up a mountain, removed from civilisation, you’re a modern Australian and Kalgoorlie is a modern city. It is also a city with a forward-thinking dental practice, and for us at Goldfields Family Dental, bridge dental work is a speciality. We use it to restore our patients’ teeth to good order, attractiveness, and functionality.

What Does a Dentist Bridge Mean?

With anything from a single tooth bridge to a more complex arrangement, the principles of bridge work for teeth are the same. It makes a bridge between two stable teeth so that a new prosthetic tooth can be placed there, filling the gap and securely anchored on both sides. Bridge work teeth are sometimes called pontics, which comes from the Latin word pontus, meaning bridge. You’ve heard the old French song, Sur le Pont d’Avignon – same origin. On the Avignon bridge, secure and solid at both ends but with a new section in the middle. Read More

What is the Procedure for Having a Dentist Bridge your Gap?

All our dental bridges and crowns (which are another way of tackling a similar problem) are made in a specialist dental lab. We have a good look in your mouth to assess exactly what is needed, then pass the information to them and they will make your bridge to order, using the latest materials for excellent strength and realistic appearance. They give the finished article to us; we install it securely and you’re back in business as if nothing ever happened.

Forget the old notions of removable false teeth on a plate: they do still exist, but there is so much more that can be done these days when it comes to cosmetic dental treatments. Bridges are permanent, so you’re not going to be removing them at night and putting them in a glass in the bathroom. Yours will be in your mouth for the duration, fulfilling the function of the original one that somehow bit the dust. You will be biting and chewing effectively, and maybe smiling more than ever, just because you know you look good when you do it.

10/10 was a little anxious about getting a tooth pulled but it was pain free and all the staff were super friendly. No longer in any pain.

Recently bit the bullet and finally took myself to the dentist after 5 years 🙈. I tell you after the experience at GFD the time between visits will no longer be that long! The staff at GFD we so welcoming and accommodating, not a word to make me feel bad about leaving so long between visits, I felt supported for finally doing some self care. I was also terrified of going through having a clean, remembering it like torture 5 years ago, but honestly it was way less painful, (the EMS was a breeze!) and if I don't leave it for so long to the next one, I know it will actually be painless!!! Who knew going to the dentist could actually be so enjoyable. Shoutout to Truc for a great job and being lovely!

I cannot thank the staff here enough for the most wonderful first dental experience for my 3 year old. I was really worried about him being compliant because of his stubborness and how he usually is at the doctor. I left with my mouth wide open in amazement! The childrens jungle themed waiting room made him feel very comfortable. Dr Sigourney took her time with him showing him all the equipment and got him to even lay on the chair without me! The dental nurse was also so kind. Then collette took him to the underwater themed teeth brushing room and was incredible, even getting him to use toothpaste which I always struggle with. Thank you all

Had a temporary filling repaired by Sigourney this morning and would just like to say how lovely she was. She explained what she was doing every step of the way and it took all the nerves and anxiety out of it.
