Do you have gaps or spaces in your smile that make you embarrassed to smile? Have you lost one or more permanent teeth? Ask Dr. Joseph C. Styger about getting a dental bridge in San Francisco, California. A dental bridge is made of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap, also called abutment teeth, with one or more replacement teeth in between. Our dentist may place a dental bridge to:
- Restore your smile
- Improve your ability to chew and speak properly
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Properly distribute your bite
- Prevent your natural teeth from shifting
Our dentist uses Lava™ bridges to provide you with a restoration that has an outstanding fit and is exactly matched to the color or your teeth. Lava bridges also have the natural translucency of teeth, unlike metal-based and Zirconia restorations. Unlike metal-based restorations, Lava bridges retain their beauty for years. Lava bridges are strong enough to withstand stresses that are greater than those that occur in your mouth.
We welcome you to contact our dental office today to learn if Lava bridges are right for you and to schedule your next appointment. We are excited to serve you and your smile!
