Bridges are fixed appliances for dental restoration and are best used for replacing missing teeth. They join an artificial tooth or set of teeth to other dental implants or surrounding teeth. It will take you a couple of visits to the prosthodontists before the dental bridge is correctly applied to your teeth. The best part about bridges is that they will last for about 5 to 15 years if you look after them properly. Bridges are a reliable and robust option for patients looking to replace missing teeth.


Crowns are an excellent option for replacing missing teeth and holding broken or chipped teeth together. The expert team at Goichi Shiotsu, DDS ensure you don't have to worry about your crown looking out of place among your teeth. We ensure that your crown looks and feels natural, so you can confidently shine your smile.

Dental Implants

If you're looking for a long-term and effective option to replace your missing teeth, you can't go wrong with dental implants. The implant will be placed in the area you are missing teeth and will fuse to your natural bone, which encourages new bone growth and preserves your remaining bone.
