When you come into our San Rafael, CA office and talk to Dr. Rinck, the doctor may feel that your best option to replace a single lost tooth is a bonded bridge. A bonded bridge consists of two parts. The first is a false tooth, called a pontic and the second are 'wings' that support the pontic. The entire structure spans the space vacated by the missing tooth giving you a natural looking replacement without damaging surrounding teeth. Neighboring tooth structures are allowed to remain the same and the wings of the bonded tooth are attached behind the neighboring teeth.
So don't put off that dentist appointment one more day. Pick up the phone and call Dr. Rinck at 415 479-4977 and setup an appointment to replace that missing tooth today. You will be so glad you did.
