Dental bridges are similar to Dental Crowns, but serve a different purpose. Dental crowns are attached to either end of a bridge to anchor it in place to restore missing teeth and complete an arch. Our restorations are made from natural-looking, durable materials that can last for several years with the proper maintenance.
If you’re missing several or all of your teeth along an arch, customized full or partial dentures is a tried-and-true treatment that many patients turn to. Both types of dentures are crafted from gum-colored acrylic that holds natural-looking replacement teeth in place, but there’s one primary difference. Partials are made to secure to surrounding, existing teeth to stay in place, while full dentures utilize natural suction and are designed to sit over the gums.
For patients who are looking for a more permanent and stable replacement option for their teeth, we also offer dental implants. This procedure combines the best aesthetic traits of traditional restorations with the strong and stable foundation of a dental implant, or a small, titanium post that’s placed below your gumline. This treatment is revered as the best way to restore smiles because of its 35+ year-long lifespan with proper care and ability to provide patients with a fully functional smile that looks and feels natural, among countless other benefits.
