Dental bridges have been used to replace missing teeth for a very long time, and dentists are still likely to recommend them if you have a single gap in your smile. The crowns at either end of the bridge are fitted over your natural teeth. The space will be filled by one or more prosthetic teeth supported by the crowns. A bridge might be used to replace one missing tooth or at least two consecutive teeth depending on the situation.
Looking for an affordable way to restore your smile after losing most or all of your teeth? We’re likely to recommend custom-made dentures. You can get a full denture if the entire arch needs to be replaced, but if you still have a good number of teeth that can be saved, we can instead give you a partial denture that can fill any spaces in the arch. Each denture is personalized for the patient’s comfort.
Dental implants provide a unique way to replace missing teeth. While traditional bridges are supported by natural teeth, and dentures typically rest on the gums, dental implants fuse with the jawbone. This means they can act like tooth roots, giving your new smile a more natural feel while also stopping the deterioration of the jawbone. On average, dental implants can last for 30 years or more – far longer than what other replacement options can offer.
