If you are missing one or more teeth, there are several tooth replacement options that can restore a beautiful smile and effective tooth function. Our dentist, Dr. Pamela Marzban, can discuss each of these options with you and help you choose the right one for your needs and expectations.
Dentures are often the first thing people think of for replacing teeth, but in fact there are a few tooth replacement alternatives to dentures, such as:
Facelift dentures, while similar to traditional dentures, address some of the common shortcomings of traditional dentures, such as slipping, poor fit, lack of stimulation of supporting bone, and so on. Facelift dentures also create fuller, more youthful cheeks and a defined jawline.
A dental implant is surgically implanted in the jaw and then a dental crown is placed on top of the implant. These restorations tend to be the longest lasting tooth replacement and are optimally functional and beautiful. Dental bridges use an artificial tooth that rests in the space of the missing tooth and is supported by a dental crown on either side.
Our experienced dentist can help you compare the advantages of each option and help you choose the one that is right for you.
