The kind of tooth replacement you get largely depends on the number of teeth missing. If you have only one gap to fill – be it from a single tooth or multiple teeth in a row – we can place a dental bridge that uses two of your natural teeth for support. The bridge will be made of two crowns and multiple prosthetic teeth; the material used to create a bridge will be carefully shade-matched so that your new restoration matches the rest of your smile.
There are two types of dentures you might get depending on how many teeth you’ve lost. Partial dentures are for filling in multiple gaps throughout an arch, whereas full dentures are used to replace entire rows of teeth. The technology, materials, and techniques used to make dentures have made them much smaller and sleeker than they used to be, meaning it is much easier to design false teeth that look like a natural part of your face.
Depending on how healthy your jawbone is, we may refer you to a specialist to place dental implants in order to completely replace all of your missing teeth. A dental implant can fulfil the same functions as tooth roots, and it offers your new teeth additional strength and stability. It’s possible to use implants to replace everything from a single missing tooth to an entire mouth in a way that looks and feels as natural as possible.
Dental Implant-Retained Prosthetics
One of the biggest advantages of dental implants is that they can be used to support a wide variety of aesthetics, from single crowns and bridges to partial and full dentures. After your jawbone has joined with the implant posts, we will take impressions of your mouth in order to design the final prosthetic. We’ve helped reconstruct many smiles in the past, and we always go the extra mile to deliver truly stunning results.
