Unfortunately, when an adult loses a tooth due to decay or a physical accident, the patient's entire smile can be affected. In order to feel confident and proud of our smile, replacing missing teeth is often a necessity.
Fortunately, there are several options to help restore the look and function of missing teeth.
Fixed Dental Bridges are used to prevent missing teeth from causing surrounding teeth to shift, changing your bite, or making your jaw sore.
Resin-Retained Dental Bridges are best for front teeth which typically don't go through much pressure. This procedure is less invasive and they also allow you to show off your smile without shame or fear of your missing tooth being noticed.
Single Tooth Implants act as tooth roots for replacement teeth. They are securely anchored into the jaw, and topped with a dental crown for the very best in look, feel, and function.
Dentures and Partial Dentures are made of a gum-colored plastic resin or acrylic base and either resin or porcelain replacement teeth, which are custom designed to fit your mouth. Full dentures are for patients who are missing several or all of their teeth on the upper or lower jaw.
Partial Dentures are great for patients who have several missing teeth scattered along the upper or lower jaw. These can be either fixed or removable.
