Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Bridges & Crowns

How can we help you?

Education is the foundation of your dental healthcare. We believe it is vital for our patients to have all the facts so that they may make informed decisions about their dental treatment and care program.

We have compiled a selection of common questions about our practice, the services we offer, and dentistry in general. If your question is not answered here, and/or if you would like more information, please call our office or send us an email.

Bridges & Crowns

Veneers, crowns, and fillings can all be used to treat chipped and worn teeth. We are happy to meet with you, examine your teeth and gums, discuss your dental goals, and make a recommendation as to which cosmetic treatment is right for you. 

We can replace missing or damaged teeth with attractive, natural-looking bridges or implants. Missing teeth can cause dental and health problems, and after a comprehensive evaluation of your particular needs, we will be able to determine the right solution for your dental issues.

 

Cosmetic treatments that Dr. Rahimi offers are teeth whitening, laser dentistry, fillings, dentures, bridges and crowns, Invisalign, veneers and implants.

Implants are beneficial not only because they address aesthetic concerns with tooth loss but also because they help maintain bone structure.

When you lose a tooth, the bone where that tooth once was begins to deteriorate and shrink away. This can have a detrimental effect on the surrounding teeth by causing tipping, turning, or caving, eventually creating problems with function and bite, resulting in further tooth loss.

Implants are anchored in the bone to help prevent bone loss. Additionally, implants mimic your natural tooth and provide a stable chewing surface.
