A resin bonded bridge is a cost effective fix in San Francisco for missing teeth

Resin Bonded from Bridge San Francisco dentist

Crowns and resin bonded bridges play an important role in the broad spectrum of dental treatment options offered by Dr. Leo Arellano, General & Cosmetic Dentistry in San Francisco.

Dental implants and porcelain veneers have surpassed crowns and bridges in popularity in recent years, but the advancements in the design and materials used for bridgework now make them a more cost-effective choice to replace one or two teeth. Modern bridges have increased durability and enhanced esthetic appeal.

Where Used and Design

Resin bonded bridges are primarily used to replace front teeth, or incisors, where the bite strength required is not as powerful as that for the back teeth. They are the result of conservative dentistry, which advocates minimizing tooth preparation and keeping enamel intact to help protect the overall health of the teeth. The bridge is made with wing shaped attachments connected to an artificial tooth. This artificial replacement tooth is made of resin or porcelain material to mimic your natural teeth.

Procedure

The bridge is attached using a resin composite cement to the teeth on both sides of the span. These anchor teeth are minimally prepped to accept the resin bonded bridge. A small amount of enamel is removed from the inner sides of both teeth so the bridge can adhere to them firmly. The resin bonded bridge placement procedure takes about an hour and costs approximately 50% less than a conventional bridge or dental implant.

Durability

Studies show over 80% of resin bonded bridges on front teeth are still functioning after 15 years, and patients are satisfied with the functionality and look that these prosthetics provide.

I've been going to Dr. Arellano for about 20 years and I continue because of the excellent care and treatment I get with him and his whole office team. He is both professional and personable.
Recently I had a newer technique of gum surgery/grafting at his office called, "Pinhole Surgical Technique of gum grafting." I personally found this to be much easier to handle than the other style of gum grafting that I received years ago for the other side of my mouth. That worked, it was where part of my roof of my mouth was cut and surgically sewn onto the gum. However, I much prefer the pinhole technique. It was actually the easiest dental work I've had (beyond regular cleaning.) It didn't take too long and it didn't feel uncomfortable getting it done. I was swollen, but I think that happens regardless of what kind of gum grafting is done. I needed ibuprofin for a few days, no major pain. It healed well and just felt easy. I am not a fan of having any work done in my mouth because that's me, but this was the easiest work I've ever had done.
So, if you are debating which kind of surgery to do I personally would recommend the pinhole surgery.

We've gone to Dr Arellano for many years and have never been disappointed with any of the work he's done. Recently my husband broke a tooth and Leo got him in and had the tooth repaired within a few short hours. Service like that is very hard to finds these days. His office staff is fantastic. Nice people you are always glad to see. I would highly recommend Dr Arellano to anyone who is searching for an honest, competent, well trained dentist.
