Dental Bridges in Long Beach
Restore Your Smile with a Durable, Natural-Looking Dental Bridge
A dental bridge is a type of dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. A dental bridge is placed over your natural teeth which have been prepared to support the restoration.
Dr. Pakiz has many years of experience repairing gaps caused by missing teeth. He creates durable, natural-looking bridges that blend seamlessly with your existing teeth and help restore your natural ability to chew and bite.
Replacing missing teeth with dental implants
The problem with a dental bridge is that it requires altering your other teeth to hold the bridge. If those other teeth are healthy Dr. Pakiz will likely recommend a dental implant instead.
Dr. Pakiz takes a conservative approach to dentistry, which means he tries to preserve your natural teeth whenever possible. A dental implant is the most conservative method of replacing a missing tooth as it does not require the alteration of your other healthy teeth.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a titanium post placed in the jawbone to simulate a tooth root. It is topped with a crown to replace a missing tooth. Dental implants are the modern solution for replacing missing teeth.
