Replacing Lost Teeth

Serving San Jose and Santa Clara County for dentures, dental crowns and bridges, prosthodontics and tooth replacement

Teeth can be lost for a variety of reasons including decay, gum disease, injury, medical and congenital problems, and even wear. The inability to enjoy certain foods and feeling self-conscious when you smile may cause a loss of self-esteem. Prosthodontists, experts in recreating nature's balance, understand that missing teeth have an immediate impact on a person's quality of life.

As the American Dental Association recognized specialist in tooth replacement and restoration, a prosthodontist such as Dr. Hong can recommend and provide the best treatment available including:


With the improvements in dental implants and other techniques in recent years, dentures are not as common as they once were. However, they can still be very effective for many people, and Dr. Hong can provide high quality new or replacement dentures for you. Success with dentures depends on a good fit and a well-made denture, and on following the advice of your dentist.

Denture wearers gain confidence about how their dentures look and feel as they adjust to them over time. They usually learn to speak and eat more confidently than ever before. With a good daily cleaning routine and regular visits to the dentist, dentures can help you lead a healthy and natural lifestyle. Of course, even with the best of care, it may be necessary to have dentures remade after a number of years. This is because the bony ridge in the mouth that dentures rest on goes through natural changes over time, causing dentures to fit improperly. Whenever you sense any change in the way your dentures work or feel, your dentist can tell you if it's time for new dentures or if a relining or adjustment in fit is needed.

What Is a Prosthodontist?

Prosthodontists are dental specialists in the restoration and replacement of teeth. After completing four years of dental school, prosthodontists receive three years of specialized training in an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited graduate education program. Prosthodontics is one of the eight dental specialties recognized by the ADA.

Rigorous training and experience provide prosthodontists with the special understanding of the dynamics of the smile, the preservation of a healthy mouth, and the creation of tooth replacements.

Serving as the "architect" of a dental treatment plan, prosthodontists collaborate with general dentists, specialists and other health professionals to develop solutions to your dental concerns.

Protecting Your Teeth

Years of eating, chewing, and for many nightly "grinding" can affect your teeth in many ways. For example, excessive wear on teeth with large fillings or root canals can lead to portions of teeth breaking off. To preserve the remaining tooth and prevent breakage, a prosthodontist may recommend various types of crowns or "caps" to restore the tooth. Prosthodontists are experts in managing the increased complexity of multiple tooth treatments, as well as providing "state of the art" solutions to protect and restore natural-looking smiles.

Prosthodontists Can Help in Many Ways

As dental experts in state-of-the-art procedures and techniques, Dr. Hong is able to treat many different, diverse dental conditions such as:

  • Complex care management involving multiple specialists
  • Post oral cancer reconstruction and continuing care
  • Children born with missing teeth
  • TMD - jaw joint problems
  • Traumatic injuries
  • Snoring and sleep disorders

Integrating natural-looking replacement materials with the patient's original facial structure into a comfortable and pleasing appearance is our goal.
