If you have a gap in your mouth from one or more missing teeth, you could be a great candidate for a dental bridge in Foster City, California, and Dr. Stephen Henry is happy to help you!
A dental bridge is made of two or more crowns that are placed on the remaining teeth on both sides of the gap. Between the crowns are false teeth that fill your gap and complete your smile. This product has the ability to:
- Restore your ability to chew and speak properly
- Improve your smile
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Give you the needed force in your bite
- Prevent your remaining teeth from drifting out of place
The process of installing a dental bridge usually includes two trips to the dental office of Dr. Stephen Henry DDS. During your first visit, our dentist will prepare the natural teeth for the crowns. This will involve shaving portions of the teeth down to allow room for the crowns. Once the teeth are the correct shape, our dentist will make impressions of your teeth and send them to a lab, where they will make customized restorations. Once the bridge is created, our dentist will check and adjust the bridge to your bite and will permanently cement it into place when he finds the perfect fit.
