Dental Bridges

One tooth or multiple consecutive teeth can be replaced with a traditional restoration called a dental bridge. It’s made out of two crowns and a number of prosthetic teeth. The crowns are supported by the natural teeth adjacent to the space in your smile, and the prosthetics between them act as your new teeth. Just like individual crowns, dental bridges can be made out of lifelike materials that, when shaded correctly, make your new teeth virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

While bridges are suitable for replacing one or a few missing teeth at a time, dentures are usually recommended for more extensive tooth loss. Partial dentures can fill in multiple gaps in your smile while full dentures can replace an entire missing arch. Both are made to be removable so that you can clean them thoroughly. Partial dentures are held in place by metal clasps on your teeth, but full dentures simply sit on your gums and are held in place by natural suction.

Dental Implants

Dental implants can act as new roots for your replacement teeth – something that traditional bridges and dentures cannot do on their own. Because of this, dental implants offer many unique benefits, including biting strength and longevity that far surpasses that of other tooth replacement options. If you’re interested in getting dental implants, you do not need to see a specialist; we can perform the surgery to place the implant post(s) in your jawbone right here.

Full-Mouth Reconstruction

When multiple teeth need to be replaced or repaired, we’ll need to think carefully about what kind of treatments are right for your situation. During a full-mouth reconstruction, we may combine tooth replacement options, such as dental implants and bridges, with other restorations, such as individual dental crowns that are meant to protect and strengthen the teeth you still have. The entire process will be customized specifically for you depending on your needs.
