To fill in the gaps left behind by multiple consecutive missing teeth, a fixed dental bridge can be created using two dental crowns that fit over healthy abutment teeth on either side of the gap. The remaining pontics (artificial teeth) create the remainder of the bridge and rest on the gums to complete the smile. Dental bridges are known for their natural appearance and can last for upwards of a decade if properly taken care of over time.
An entire arch of missing teeth can easily be replaced by a full denture. Whether created for the top or bottom arch or both, these prosthetics use natural suction to remain in place. Similarly, partial dentures can replace multiple nonconsecutive missing teeth throughout an arch. Made of acrylic and a metal framework that supports the artificial teeth that are put into place, they act like a puzzle piece when positioned to fill in the gaps of a smile.
Dental implants are considered superior tooth replacements because of their ability to provide continuous stimulation to the jawbone as well as their longer lifespan. Replacing both the roots and crowns of teeth, they rebuild smiles in their entirety while delivering improved eating, speaking, and smiling. With dental implants, greater confidence is achievable as well as better oral and overall health.
Zirconia Dental Implants
Dental implants are most commonly made of a titanium alloy, which has a long track record of success. However, we understand that some patients are concerned about the use of metals in dentistry. That is why we also offer zirconia dental implants. Zirconia is a type of ceramic that is extremely durable and offers some unique advantages. When you come in for your tooth replacement consultation, our team can help you compare your implant options so you can settle on the one that best fits your needs and preferences.
