We can completely replace missing or irreparably damaged teeth with state-of-the-art implants. Once any remaining part of the tooth to be replaced is extracted, an aluminum alloy implant is anchored in the jawbone. The final step is to attach a replacement tooth that looks and feels completely natural and realistic.
There are a variety of types of dentures depending on the scope of tooth loss and the wishes of the patient. Removable partial dentures replace a few missing teeth on a single arch. Fixed partial dentures are also available. For patients missing most or all of their teeth, we also offer complete dentures.
Porcelain dental crowns are the latest method of replacing a damaged tooth using a prosthetic attachment. Crowns are also made from a variety of metals, but these can lead to allergic reactions and are accompanied by a variety of possible health risks. With proper care, porcelain crowns are extremely long-lasting.
Inlays and onlays restore damaged or decayed teeth that do not require a dental crown. An inlay involves bonding material to the tooth to replace areas missing from damage or cavity extraction and to cover a part of the chewing surface. Onlays cover the entire chewing surface, including one or more tooth cusps.
A dental bridge consists of an artificial replacement tooth or teeth fused into place between two porcelain crowns. A fixed bridge cannot be removed from the mouth by the patient, but must be removed and adjusted by a dental professional. Bridges can improve bites, smiles, and speech patterns immensely.
