A dental bridge is made up of two crowns and at least one artificial tooth known as a pontic. The crowns are made to rest on your natural teeth while the pontic (or pontics) fills in the gap. A dental bridge can be used to replace one tooth or multiple consecutive teeth. They are made out of the same materials as traditional dental crowns, meaning you can expect your new teeth to blend right in with the rest of your smile.
All of your missing teeth can be replaced at once with a custom-made denture. The base of the denture will be made out of gum-colored acrylic; the teeth will be customized so that they give your grin a natural appearance. There are two types of dentures that we offer: partial dentures and full dentures. A partial denture is made to fill in specific gaps in your smile. A full denture replaces all of your teeth at once.
Dental implants are often referred to as the modern gold standard for replacing teeth. Unlike dentures and dental bridges, implants extend deep below the gumline and join with your jawbone so that they can act as replacement tooth roots. Not only does this improve biting strength and let you enjoy a wide variety of foods, but your new teeth will help keep your jawbone healthy and strong through the stimulation they provide. We can determine if you’re a candidate for implants during a consultation.
