Some of the simplest pleasures in life, like eating your favorite foods or smiling with the rest of your family in photographs, depend on having a full set of natural teeth. Sadly, millions of Americans experience tooth loss every year, but there’s no need to force yourself to live with the gap in your grin. Here at Arts Family Dentistry of Dallas, you have several options for seamlessly filling in the gaps in your grin. Call us today to set up a consultation and discover your options for replacing missing teeth in our Dallas, TX dental office.
A dental bridge is a type of dental prosthetic that’s anchored to your natural teeth in order to fill in a gap in your smile. Two dental crowns sit on the teeth themselves and hold a number of prosthetics between them. We’ll carefully design your bridge so that it looks like a natural part of the rest of your smile so that you can be confident in your appearance.
Dentures let you replace many teeth at once at an affordable price. We may recommend either full or partial dentures depending on how many teeth you’ve lost. Partial dentures fill in gaps left between your natural teeth whereas full dentures fill in entire rows of missing teeth. In both cases, the restoration will be custom designed to fit comfortably in your mouth and function properly on a day-to-day basis.
We’re partnered with local specialists who are trained to place dental implants – biocompatible posts that are placed in the jaw to act like new roots for dental crowns, bridges, and dentures. New teeth that are supported by implants tend to be stronger, will not slip while you’re eating or speaking, and have a longer lifespan than more traditional options. Once your dental implants have joined with your jawbone, we’ll handle the process of designing and attaching beautiful new teeth.
