Replace one or more missing teeth.
A dental bridge is an effective and simple solution that can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. As well as being unattractive, missing teeth can cause significant problems because having a space between teeth can inhibit proper eating and speaking. Teeth have the tendency to drift into the area of the missing tooth or teeth. To create a strong, new tooth or teeth, Dr. Choi first takes precise measurements of the gap. Using these measurements, a replacement tooth is suspended between two porcelain dental crowns. These crowns fit over the teeth adjacent to the gap and are bonded to hold the bridge in the correct position. The final bridge will be matched as closely as possible to the surrounding teeth. Once the procedure is completed, bridges can be used normally. For more information on dental bridges, call our office at 415-986-1491 to schedule an appointment.
