Traditional Crown & Bridge
Dental crowns or caps as the name suggests fit over the top of a damaged tooth in order restore form and function following decay or trauma. For patients with 1 to 3 consecutive missing teeth, dental crowns can be used to support a replacement tooth or teeth. This dental prosthetic is often referred to as a bridge or fixed bridge. The replacement tooth is attached to dental crowns on either side, and these crowns and bridges are attached as a single unit to the healthy teeth surrounding the empty socket providing support for the prosthetic. Crown and bridge tooth replacements are sturdy and durable, and they look and feel so much like natural teeth that you might forget they aren’t your own.
Partial & Full Dentures
For those patients missing numerous teeth or a full arch of teeth, we offer traditional partial and full dentures. Partial dentures sometimes simply referred to as partials allow us to fill in any number of dental gaps by crafting prosthetic teeth set into a gum colored base. This prosthetic snaps into place like a puzzle piece for patients’ smiles, and is held in position with metal clasps or bars. For those missing a full arch of teeth, removable dentures restore patients’ ability to chew, speak, and smile with confidence. Replacement teeth are set into a gum colored base, and these prosthetics are anchored into position using natural suction or dental adhesive.
