Prosthodontic Treatment Options
To address a damaged or dysfunctional smile, we will need to fully examine the health and function of the teeth, jaw, gums, and joints. Using advanced dental technology, we can evaluate your dental health and create an effective treatment plan to address your needs and give you back a comfortable smile.
- Dental Bridge: This restoration is designed to bridge the gap between missing teeth. It is commonly used to address several consecutive missing teeth. Depending on your needs, your dental bridge can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials.
- Dental Implants: An implant is designed to mimic the natural tooth root. It is comprised of the implant post, abutment, and dental crown. Dental implants can also be used to secure a dental bridge or denture.
- TMJ Treatment: If you have a bite disorder, it is important to identify the underlying cause and treat it. Treatment may include orthodontics, mouthguards, or restorative dentistry.
- Dental Crowns: A custom crown is designed to fit over the damaged or decayed tooth. Dental crowns can be used to address tooth damage, fix a mishappen tooth, and the strengthen a weakened tooth.
- Porcelain Veneers: Veneers are ultra-thin shells that cover the front and sides of the teeth. They are color matched to match seamlessly with your existing teeth and are typically used to enhance the appearance of your natural smile.
Dental Filling: A filling is used to address a the decayed or damaged portion of a tooth. Most dentists use white colored dental fillings to address a damaged or decayed tooth.
- Dentures: If you are missing both arches of teeth, we may use a full denture to restore your smile. If you are missing either the top or bottom arches of teeth, we may recommend a partial denture.
