San Jose Dental Office Can Replace Missing Teeth in an Hour

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - March 29, 2015) - Dr. Gagan Sandhu, a skilled San Jose dentist, can replace patients' missing teeth in just one hour using state-of-the-art dental implants.

Dr. Sandhu, owner of California Shine Dental, became certified in dental implants in 2002. He offers dental implants to patients with individual missing teeth or for those who need more stability from their dentures.

Dental implants are durable, last a lifetime and give patients 90 percent of the chewing force of natural teeth. Implants are made from titanium posts that fuse to the patient's jawbone and then support a porcelain restoration or denture.

Dr. Sandhu's patients often prefer dental implants to dental bridges. Before dental implants were introduced, dental bridges were the most common way to fill gaps caused by missing teeth. The disadvantage to dental bridges is that Dr. Sandhu has to shave down two healthy teeth to support the appliance.

With years of experience and expertise, Dr. Sandhu offers dental implants to patients who do not want the bridge procedure. He sees patients in his practice every week who walk in self-conscious about their smile and leave 60 minutes later with dental implants that restore their mouth and chewing force.

To be a candidate for dental implants, the patient must be in relative good health and have enough remaining jawbone to support the implants.

"The great thing about dental implants is that you cannot even tell the difference between the implants and your natural teeth," Dr. Sandhu said. "With our dental implants, patients find that they can eat the food they've been missing out on for years."

California Shine Dental offices are at 105 North Jackson Ave., Suite 105, San Jose, CA, and 3151 South White Road, Suite 101, San Jose, CA. The offices are open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The offices close from 1 to 2 p.m. for lunch.

In addition to providing comprehensive services, staff members can speak English, Spanish, Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu.

Dr. Sandhu has practiced dentistry for the past 13 years. He graduated with honors in periodontics from Chaudhary Charan Singh University in India in 2002, which is the same year he received his certification in dental implants. Dr. Sandhu immigrated to the United States in 2003. He trained with the prestigious University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco and The Duggan Institute of Dentistry. Dr. Sandhu earned his California Dental License and his Invisalign certification in 2007. He also holds a certification in dental implant surgery.

Dr. Sandhu is a certified Invisalign provider and places and restores his own dental implants. The practice treats patients from across San Jose, including the areas of Santa Clara, Union City, Fremont and Milpitas.

Dr. Sandhu practices with three associates: Dr. Vandana Karia, Dr. Mandeep Kaur and Dr Harsirat Gondara.

Dr. Karia has practiced dentistry in San Jose for more than seven years. She attended the University of Mumbai in India and then earned her license from the California Dental Board. She focuses on preventive and restorative dentistry.
