Dental implants are considered the best replacement for missing teeth for those who qualify. This revolutionary dental solution involves surgically placing a titanium post into the jawbone where the missing tooth root is. A dental crown or other restoration is then affixed to the top to complete the permanent tooth replacement. Dental implants offer a number of advantages over alternative options, restoring the form and function of your teeth with long-lasting results.
Implant dentures offer a more life-like alternative to traditional dentures, helping you chew, talk, and smile more naturally. By anchoring your full-arch teeth replacement with a series of dental implants, you can obtain a secure new set of teeth that eliminates many of the frustrations associated with removable dentures.
All-on-4® Dental Implants
All-on-4 is a type of implant-supported denture that involves placing approximately four dental implants into the jawbone to support a new arch of replacement teeth. The implants may be placed at an angle to ensure optimal jawbone contact, achieving a strong and reliable foundation for your replacement teeth.
CEREC Same Day Restorations
With CEREC technology, dental restorations can be custom-made and placed during the same day, without the need for a follow-up appointment. Our dentists utilize this advanced CAD/CAM system to scan your teeth, after which they can design and fabricate your new restoration. From crowns and bridges to inlays and onlays, CEREC restorations provide a convenient solution to common dental problems.
A porcelain crown is designed to be a permanent solution for teeth that are badly damaged or heavily decayed. Often placed after a root canal, as part of a dental implant or bridge, or as remedy for a tooth that cannot be restored with a filling, porcelain dental crowns cover the entire tooth and can provide significant improvement in both the function and appearance of your teeth. They are custom-designed for the most accurate and precise fit, and color-tinted to match your surrounding teeth. Porcelain dental crowns are made to look and feel like your natural teeth – in fact, others will likely not even know you have one unless you tell them!
A dental bridge offers you the opportunity to replace one or more missing teeth with natural-looking results. Traditional, or fixed, bridges are essentially made of an artificial tooth with two porcelain crowns placed on the adjacent teeth. While the artificial tooth replaces the gap created by the missing tooth, the porcelain crowns provide a solid support structure for the replacement and reduce slippage and movement inside the mouth. Dental bridges are made to look like your natural teeth and can bring you very long-lasting results.
For patients who may be considering alternatives to dental implants as reliable replacements for missing teeth, full and partial sets of dentures are still very good treatment options. Dentures made to replace some or all of your teeth can improve your chewing and speaking ability while restoring the appearance of your smile. They can be placed in both the upper and the lower parts of your mouth, and are designed to comfortably mimic your natural teeth.
