Bridges Dentist San Rafael
Having one or more missing teeth can have a serious effect not only on your smile, but also on your dental health. Specifically, missing teeth can cause:
- A shift in the alignment of your teeth?
- Increased risk of periodontal disease
- Increased risk of tooth decay
- Loss of adjacent teeth
- Speech disorders
- Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
What Are Dental Bridges?
A dental bridge is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth with a restoration that is strong enough to withstand everyday chewing, but that does not require surgery to secure into place. Dr. Creaghe is renowned in San Rafael, CA for creating aesthetic dental bridges. Contact his office to schedule an appointment to discuss this procedure. Dr. Creaghe begins by taking measurements of the gap between your teeth to be filled and carving a replacement tooth from a piece of porcelain ceramic. Your just milled new tooth is a solid porcelain block bonded over the teeth on either side of the gap. The solid porcelain bridge stays in place so that its alignment matches your surrounding teeth perfectly and fits with your natural bite.
