Dentures and Partials

Patients may lose teeth due to Oral diseases, decay, or trauma may cause you to lose several or all of your teeth, but custom-made full or partial dentures allow to restore the appearance and function of their teeth.

Removable Dentures

Removable dentures replace some or all of the teeth to keep the proper shape of their mouth and teeth and help you eat and speak properly. Partial dentures replace several missing teeth while your healthy teeth remain, but complete dentures replace all of the teeth on the upper and/or lower arches, but some of the patient’s natural teeth remain. Removable dentures can be taken out as needed for cleaning or other reasons, unlike implant dentures that are anchored into the jawbone. For the most natural look, all dentures are custom made at a dental laboratory with high quality materials that are designed to look and feel natural.

Dental Bridges

A bridge fills in a gap in the teeth with a false tooth that is held securely in place by attaching the false tooth (pontic) to a crown that is placed over a natural tooth. There are three main options for bridges depending on the patient’s needs: a traditional bridges are a false tooth surrounds the pontic (false tooth) on each side by a crown over natural teeth; a cantilever bridge surrounds the false tooth surrounded on one side by at least one attached crown; and a Maryland bridges or resin-bonded bridge supports the false tooth by wings or framework bonded to the surrounding natural teeth.

Dental Crowns

To repair and protect broken teeth, deep discoloration, significant decay, and other problems, dental crowns cover the entire tooth. Crowns (sometimes called caps) are strong, durable covers that fit snugly over the visible portion of the tooth in cases where a cavity is too large to be filled or if the tooth is broken and needs protection. Crowns can also be used to mask a discolored tooth or add stability to a dental bridge. Crowns can be metal, porcelain, or ceramic, depending on the location of the crown. The back teeth usually benefit from the extra strength of metal, while visible teeth look better with porcelain or ceramic that are colored to match the natural teeth.
