A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. When cemented into place, the crowns fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. A dental crown may be needed to protect a weak tooth from decay or breaking, to restore an already broken or severely worn down tooth, to hold a dental bridge in place, to cover misshapen or severely discolored teeth, or to make cosmetic modifications.
If you have one or more missing teeth, a dental bridge can fill the gap with one or more artificial (false) teeth. A bridge is typically made of crowns on either side of the missing tooth or teeth supporting the false tooth and is cemented in place. Dental bridges can help if you have a missing tooth or teeth. Your teeth work together: if a tooth is missing, nearby teeth can move into the empty space. The teeth in your opposite jaw can also move up or down toward the space. This can cause bite problems, chewing difficulties, pain from the extra stress on your teeth and jaw, or self-consciousness about the way you look or your smile. Dental bridges can prevent the development of these issues.
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. Dental implants offer several advantages, such as an improved appearance, enhanced speech and comfort, easier eating, higher self-esteem, better oral health, increased durability, and convenience. The first step in the dental implant process is the development of an individualized treatment plan. The plan addresses your specific needs and is prepared by our team of professionals who are specially trained and experienced in oral surgery and restorative dentistry. Our team approach provides coordinated care based on the implant option that is best for you.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available: complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Dentures are made to closely resemble your natural teeth so there should be only a small noticeable change in appearance. In fact, dentures may even improve your smile and fill out your facial appearance
