What Are My Tooth Replacement Options?

Gaps in one’s smile caused by missing and/or damaged teeth can negatively impact your confidence while also increasing the risk for serious oral health problems, such as your bite being misaligned or even jawbone deterioration. Thankfully, Dr. Zorro and her experienced cosmetic dentistry near me  practice offers several tooth replacement options that may be able to help bring back your smile. These include:

  • Dental Implants: Dental implants are a great choice for missing or damaged teeth, and for good reason: they are designed to replace the entire tooth—including the root—for a durable, stable, and natural-looking restoration. Dr. Zorro, surgically insert a titanium post into your jawbone. Once the post has fused with the bone, it is topped with a custom crown or other dental restoration, producing a result that both functionally and aesthetically mimics your natural teeth.
  • Dentures: Traditional dentures can be a good solution for patients who are ineligible for dental implants due to low jawbone density. These removable dental appliances are custom-designed to resemble your natural teeth, and they can replace either entire dental arches (complete dentures) or smaller gaps in your smile (partial dentures).
  • Dental Bridges: Dental bridges are a great option for those who are missing one or more adjacent teeth. Dr. Zorro will create a customized bridge that is secured to the natural teeth on either side of the gap using porcelain crowns. The result is a functional, gorgeous, beautiful smile.
