A dental bridge is a simple prosthetic that uses the strength of the teeth near missing ones to support one or more dental crowns that close the gap. The teeth on either side of a space are fitted with crowns, and these are bonded to the replacement teeth in the middle. In addition to restoring the appearance of the smile, bridges also enable patients to eat like normal again, plus they prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of place (which is common after tooth loss).
Dentures in one form or another have been around for hundreds of years, and thankfully, they have evolved a lot since the days of George Washington. Today’s prosthetics look extremely lifelike and give people a secure fit that helps them feel like their teeth never went missing in the first place. Partial dentures can be specially designed to seamlessly fit between any remaining teeth, while a full denture sits directly on the gums to bring back an entire row at once.
If you ask any dentist around the world what they think is the best type of tooth replacement, they will all say dental implants. Unlike other solutions that only bring back the visible portion of a tooth, implants go a step further and restore the root structure below the gum line as well. The end result is indistinguishable from a natural tooth when it comes to strength, durability, and aesthetics, and our team can use them to replace any number of teeth for a lifetime.
