One of the simplest and most common methods of tooth replacement, a dental bridge combines multiple dental crowns to literally “bridge” the gap created by tooth loss. Most bridges consist of three or four crowns, and the crowns on either end are hollowed out so that they can fit over your natural teeth. Once we’ve placed your bridge, you can enjoy a confident, gap-free smile and enhanced chewing ability for more than a decade to come.
For a patient who is missing several or even an entire arch of teeth, the right denture can make all the difference in the world. Thanks to modern dental technology, these prosthetics have become more comfortable and lifelike than ever before. After we capture an impression of your mouth, we can use it to craft the perfect set of replacement teeth, whether that be a partial denture that fills in the empty spaces, or a full denture that restores the entire row.
While other tooth replacements recreate the crown portion of the teeth above the gumline, dental implants take it one step further by also bringing back the tooth roots. Made of biocompatible titanium, dental implants are surgically placed in the jawbone, where they form a foundation that can support any number of replacement teeth for 30+ years or even a lifetime. Compared to bridges and dentures, implants feel much more natural and restore more chewing force.
