Replacing Missing Teeth

Losing a tooth can be a stressful, even emotional experience. Apart from the impact it can have on your appearance, it can often feel like losing a part of yourself—and one that you can’t get back.

Thankfully, losing a tooth is no longer as permanent as it once was. In fact, most missing teeth can be replaced one way or another. Tooth replacements can be made to look extremely natural—even almost indistinguishable from natural teeth, and there are often several options to choose from.

Here’s what we offer:

  • Dentures
  • Bridges
  • Implants

Dentures are often the simplest option for replacing your missing teeth. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. You may have heard of them referred to as ‘plates.’ They are strong lab made false teeth attached to a plastic or metal frame that are designed to fit precisely in your mouth and replace the look and function of missing teeth. They can also be easily removed for cleaning. They are usually the most cost-effective option to replace several missing teeth. To learn more about dentures, click here. 

Bridges are a more ‘fixed’ tooth-replacement solution. They are porcelain teeth which are stuck to the adjacent natural teeth by way of a crown (which is like a porcelain ‘cap’ on the natural tooth). Several types of bridges exist, each with their own specific advantages, but all of them generally provide excellent aesthetics and a natural feel. 

Implants are the most permanent tooth-replacement solution. They feel and function the most naturally, and often have the highest aesthetic potential. Implants are small titanium screws inserted into the areas of the jaw bones that usually house the roots of the teeth, with porcelain teeth (like the ones in bridges) attached to the screw. Dentures can also be attached to implant screws. To learn more about implants, click here. To learn more about implants, click here.
