Dental bridges replace one or more missing teeth by creating a bridge between two healthy teeth. Bridges can be made of materials such as porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, or a combination of these materials and are bonded onto surrounding teeth for support. We can attach them to natural teeth or dental implants for more stability.
Dentures are removable dental appliances designed to replace multiple missing teeth. They’re often made of acrylic or porcelain and can be customized to match the colour of your natural teeth. There are two types of dentures: full and partial.
Dental implants are a natural-looking, permanent solution for missing teeth. They’re surgically placed into the jawbone to provide a stable base for a replacement tooth. With dental implant treatment, you can smile confidently, knowing no one will ever suspect you have a replacement tooth.
Implants may also anchor dentures, especially with lower dentures that tend to shift when you talk or chew. For patients with removable partial dentures, implants can replace missing teeth and provide a more natural-looking smile. We can use implants to support single crowns or bridges.
