Dental Bridges and Dentures
Removable Dental Replacements That Fit and Feel Better
Missing teeth do not have to be a way of life. If you are not a candidate for our amazing dental implants, consider our other tooth replacement options, including custom made precision bridges and precision full or partial dentures options.
A dental bridge is a custom-made false tooth or teeth placed permanently between two healthy teeth, filling in the area left by a missing tooth or teeth. The bridge is held in place by porcelain crowns placed on the healthy teeth on each side of the space that is to be filled. Our bridges are mostly metal-free. As a result, they absorb light just as natural teeth do, to create a beautiful, natural-looking smile. More importantly, our bridges are created and custom fitted based on careful measurements, 3-dimensional model jaw movement simulators, models, mock-ups and intermediate “trial” restorations so that the fit and appearance of your full or partial bridge is perfect. Bridges reduce the risk of gum disease, stabilize the position of teeth, help correct some bite problems and help improve speech.
A denture is a removable appliance that replaces missing teeth and adjacent tissues. Made of resin and porcelain, complete dentures are used to replace all the teeth. When some healthy teeth remain, a partial denture can be used. A partial denture also keeps the remaining healthy teeth from shifting in the mouth.
Full and partial dentures improve chewing ability and speech, and support facial muscles. Dentures also enhance appearance. While removable, these alternatives can be stable and beautiful when precision technique and attention to detail are uncompromised. Like the fixed dental bridge, all dentures and partial dentures are built to our exacting standards on three dimensional jaw movement simulators. In addition we most often can eliminate the unsightly wires and clasps that show in many other types of dentures and partial dentures.
