Dental Bridges

With a dental bridge, we take advantage of your remaining teeth to fill in the empty space in your mouth. The restoration is made up of two crowns and at least one artificial tooth. While the crowns rest on your teeth, the prosthetics between them complete your smile. The entire restoration is made out of tooth-colored materials so that it can blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile. A dental bridge can stay in your mouth for over a decade with the right care.

Dental Implants

The traditional methods of replacing teeth can only replace the crown (the portion of the tooth that you normally see). Dental implants are a modern solution that replace the roots of the teeth along with the crowns. Teeth supported by artificial roots are stronger, let you eat more foods, have a longer lifespan, and are generally easier to take care of. Are dental implants the right choice for you? Set up a consultation at our dental office to find out.
