Dental bridges are designed to fill or bridge the gap in your smile, whether you’re missing one tooth or multiple consecutive teeth. To do this, two dental crowns are placed on top of existing teeth adjacent to the missing ones (the crowns filling the gap are known as pontics.) All of the crowns are bonded together to create one larger restoration. Bridges work to restore the appearance of your smile, make chewing feel normal once again, and prevent teeth from shifting out of place (which is a common side effect of tooth loss.)
Did you know that dentures have been around for not just hundreds of years, but thousands? Don’t worry, you’re not getting a denture that would have been worn by George Washington or the Etruscans of 7th century Italy. Instead, you’re getting a strong, comfortable, and natural-looking denture that is fully customized to your liking. This brings back both your bite and appearance, so whether you need to replace multiple teeth on both sides of your mouth or all the teeth in both your arches, we’ll make sure you walk out of the dental office happy.
One of the most unique tooth replacement treatments out there today is dental implants, mainly because they replace the entire tooth both above and below the gum line. The result is a restoration that not only looks indistinguishable from natural teeth, but feels indistinguishable as well. If you’re looking for equal parts form and function for your next tooth, dental implants are the answer. We’ll be able to replace either single teeth or all the teeth in your smile at a time, all with minimal maintenance and longevity you can rely on (averaging anywhere between 30 years and a lifetime.)
