Tooth Restoration: Dental Bridges and Dental Implants in Los Angeles

Dental Implants in Los Angeles and Dental BridgesTooth replacement has been a highly requested dental procedure at Dr. Bill Dorfman, DDS – Century City Aesthetic Dentistry. When our patients inquire about tooth restoration, we typically tell them about fixed or traditional dental bridges and tooth implants in Los Angeles.

A dental bridge is an artificial tooth which replaces a missing tooth. The false tooth—called a pontic—is fused to porcelain crowns on either side of the extracted tooth.

Tooth Implants Replace the Root and Crown

Dental implants in Los Angeles are also popular and can often be a superior choice. A dental implant includes a titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post integrates with the bone to provide a stable foundation for the replacement tooth. After 6 months, it has most likely bonded with the bone, so a smaller post can then be attached. This post extends above the gum line. The artificial tooth or crown is then attached. The entire process takes several months but consistently yields extraordinary results.

Preserving Facial Contour

Both of these tooth replacements maintain or restore facial contour and allow you to talk and eat normally. Tooth replacements prevent adjoining teeth from gradually shifting and can help correct bite troubles, as well. Dental bridges and dental implants in Los Angeles can replace one or more missing teeth. Many men and women have been treated successfully with these tooth restoration procedures. Call Dr. Bill Dorfman, DDS – Century City Aesthetic Dentistry to schedule a tooth restoration consultation by calling us at 310-277-5678.
