If you have missing, cracked, or misshapen teeth, there are a variety of options for you to choose from when it comes to tooth replacements. At White Settlement Family Dentistry, we offer a number of choices to fit your needs. If you’re not sure what’s best for you, here is some basic information on tooth replacements.
Dental bridges close the gap when you have one or more missing teeth. We work with each patient individually to create a custom appliance depending on your needs. They can be either removable or fixed in place. Rest assured that your dental bridge will be created to look and feel natural. You will be able to eat, chew, and speak normally and you’ll have a beautiful smile again.
Dental crowns are placed on top of damaged, broken, or decaying teeth. Our crowns are made of porcelain so they look and feel just like your natural teeth. They are bonded to your tooth to cover any damage. Dental crowns function just like a regular tooth and with proper care they are extremely durable and long-lasting.
Porcelain veneers are perfect for those with small, chipped, stained, or misshapen teeth who want to enhance their smile. The process is simple and safe. After we create your custom-made veneers, we bond them to the front of your teeth. They adhere perfectly to the stay in place for years with proper care. Because veneers are made of thin, durable, porcelain, they wear well and give you the confidence to show off your smile, while allowing you to eat, chew, and speak without any issues.
If you’re not sure about committing to veneers, we offer Snap-On Smiles for both upper and lower teeth. There’s no surgery or drilling required and no adhesive needed to keep it in place. Plus, you can eat and drink with it on. It’s another great solution for hiding damaged teeth.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted within the bone underneath the gum line. The tooth replacement is placed on top of those posts, creating a strong, durable, and natural-looking tooth. Replacements placed on top of dental implants include crowns or bridges, depending on how many teeth you need to have replaced. Implants take several sessions to complete, but once done are long-lasting.
