Dental Bridges

Never be afraid to smile again

  • Replace a missing tooth
  • A dental bridge allows you to smile without being embarrassed, and enables you to eat with confidence

Are you missing a tooth or two? Do you get embarrassed when you smile? Are you limited in the things you can eat? A dental bridge could be the solution you're looking for ...

A missing tooth can put a big strain on your other teeth and affect the functionality of your bite. So the health benefits of having it treated are quite considerable. If left untreated your other teeth may move their position; this will cause discomfort and affect the shape of your mouth.

Not only that, but a missing tooth can be embarrassing and cause you to hide your smile, or even suppress your laughter; it can make you so self-conscious that you avoid going for a promotion, or going to parties.

 

We would love to help restore your self-confidence

Everyone's different. If you require a fixed or removable bridge, we will help you find the right solution. Using only the finest materials and the best dental technicians, we will give you back your smile. Other options (such as Dental Implants and Dentures) are available.

Erik Lijesen

Principal Dentist

Erik is passionate about dentistry. For him, it’s more than just a service: it’s a precise art and a means to improve the lives of his clients. His philosophy is built around the idea of continual improvement so he’s always delivering the best and most cutting-edge services to his clients.

He is a great believer that to excel at cosmetic dentistry you have to be skilled in a similar way to an artist, as it’s important to consider not only the teeth but the personality, skin tone and facial symmetry when creating the best smiles. So a great artist - a great painting, a great dentist - a beautiful smile.

He first qualified with a degree in dentistry at the Vrije University of Amsterdam, graduating in 1986 and has continued to broaden his skill set ever since as well as being a master of general dentistry,

Erik has extensive training in both dental implants and advanced cosmetic dental treatments, and has been trained by some of the best dental practitioners from around the world.  These include the world renowned Didier Dietschi of the Geneva Smile Centre http://www.genevasmilecenter.ch/team_didier_dietschi.html and Ash Parmar of Smile Design by Ash http://smiledesignbyash.co.uk/ 

Not only does Erik have many years’ experience and a proven track record for excellence which has been recognised by Denplan Care who have extended Erik their elite marque, Denplan Excel, placing him amongst the top echelon of Denplan Care providers.  He is also a member of several leading dental organisations in the UK and abroad and is qualified to administer sedation by the Society for the Advancement of Anaesthesia in Dentistry (SAAD), which can also assist nervous patients with overcoming their fear.

Outside of work Erik is an active family man and enjoys nothing more than spending time with his wife and family.  He is also a dab hand in the kitchen and enjoys cooking for family and friends, trying out new recipes.  His other passions are skiing and sailing and when time permits he enjoys following these pursuits which have taken him to Europe and beyond.
