When multiple teeth are missing, a dental bridge can be used to fill in the gaps and create improved oral function. Using healthy abutment teeth, our team will file them down to serve as anchors for the bridge, which consists of several fused dental crowns. The two exterior teeth will fit snugly over the healthy structures, while the remaining crowns rest on top of the gums, creating a full, complete smile. With proper care, these prosthetics can remain in place for a decade or more.
Full and partial dentures have been around for centuries. Fortunately, the materials used to create them have changed, but the goal remains the same – to generate complete smiles. Made from durable acrylic, the bases are gum-colored, and the teeth are often made from porcelain or acrylic. Partial dentures are held in place using metal clasps or clips that attach to healthy teeth, while full dentures rely on your natural suction and dental adhesives.
Known as the most superior form of tooth replacement available, dental implants are titanium, screw-like posts that mimic the roots of natural teeth. Positioned within the jawbone, they fuse over time and create a foundation for customized restorations (i.e., crowns, bridges, dentures). As the only prosthetic capable of restoring the full root-to-crown structure, they ensure optimal functionality, durability, and longevity, lasting 30 years or more.
