Dental bridges literally act to bridge the gap between one to four consecutive missing teeth. These prosthetics have two main components: the crowns that are placed on your natural existing teeth, and the pontics, which are free-standing replacement teeth situated between the crowns. Once anchored in place, dental bridges can last for several years with the proper care and can prevent surrounding teeth from shifting out of place to fill the gap in your mouth, leading to bite and orthodontic problems down the road.
We craft both full and partial dentures to address a variety of tooth loss cases. Partial dentures have a metal base that’s strategically designed to fit between the existing teeth to fill in several gaps along an arch, while full dentures utilize a gum-colored acrylic base that sits atop the gums, using natural suction to stay in place. Both types of dentures are crafted from high-quality, natural-looking materials like gum-colored acrylic, porcelain, and ceramic.
Dental implants offer a more permanent solution for missing teeth compared to traditional bridges and dentures that have to be replaced every 10 years or so. A major benefit of this procedure is that it replaces both the crowns and roots of missing teeth, resulting in a new smile that feels as natural as it looks. Our team can complete every step of the dental implant process in-house, so you’ll have professionals you know and trust helping you every step of the way.
