Time can certainly take a toll on your teeth – no matter how well you take care of them!

Over time, teeth can wear down, crack, break, become decayed, and even fall out! You can even experience dental injuries at work or play. But regardless of the poor condition your teeth may be in, you owe it to your smile to restore them. With the many restorative dental treatments offered at our Palo Alto Dental Practice there’s no reason to live with a less-than-perfect smile.

Your Palo Alto Dentist Dr. Hansen has provided dental services in the neighborhoods of Palo Alto, Menlo Park and Atherton for many years now! Our Palo Alto Dental Practice has cared for thousands of patients during this time.


Dental Crowns are most often used to restore strength and functionality to a compromised tooth. They are frequently placed on teeth that have been treated with a root canal, or on Dental Implants. In the dental bridge procedure, crowns are used to anchor a false tooth to the teeth on either side of a missing tooth. A crown may also be used for cosmetic reasons to hide flaws like chips, cracks, or discoloration. Palo Alto Dentist Dr. Hansen performs crown restoration work, helping patients with worn or compromised teeth improve their appearance and function. No matter what the reason, dental crowns are a great way to improve self-confidence and help patients become proud to show off their smiles. With advanced, lifelike dental crown materials, we are able to ensure your dental crown is indistinguishable from other teeth.


Of all the ways you can improve your smile appearance after losing a tooth, a dental bridge is an affordable and stable dentistry option. Palo Alto Dentist Dr. Christine Hansen will examine your teeth and gums and help you decide if a dental bridge is the best way to go. No matter how challenging your dental concerns may be, our creative team can match you with very natural-looking solutions that improve your dental health as well as your smile appearance. You may be a good candidate for a dental bridge if you have one or more missing teeth. A custom false tooth will fill the space of the missing tooth. The two neighboring teeth will receive crowns which in turn provide stabilization for the artificial tooth. A natural tooth often supports dental bridges, but Dental Implants can be used as the foundation if necessary. A Dental Implant is also an excellent alternative to a dental bridge for replacing a missing tooth.
