If you have missing or decayed teeth, you can choose from options like:
A dental bridge is used to replace one or two teeth that are missing. They are functional for normal biting and chewing, but they also serve a cosmetic purpose. Each one is made of durable porcelain materials that withstand daily use but also blend in with your other teeth.
Full Coverage Dental Crowns
Most of the time crowns are used on teeth that have lost structural integrity or do not have enough healthy enamel to support a filling. Instead, the tooth must be completely covered to distribute the normal chewing and biting forces exerted onto the tooth.
Our Florida family dentists recommend crowns on teeth that have:
- Been treated endodontically
- Large cracks or fractures
- Large fillings that are leaking
- Advanced tooth decay
White Tooth Fillings
Whether you have a new cavity or want to have your old silver fillings changed out for cosmetic purposes, white fillings are a great choice. Each one of our Smile Design Dental dentists will carefully match the color of the tooth filling to resemble the shade of your surrounding tooth surface. After removing the decayed area of tooth, the composite is bonded into place, fusing with the natural pores of your enamel.
Smile Design Dental offers comprehensive start to finish dental implant therapy in each of our locations as part of our restorative dentistry menu. From the surgical placement of the implant root to the fixed restoration – we have you completely covered.
Implants can be used in simple tooth replacement treatments, or for complex full mouth reconstruction. Each implant is a prosthetic root made of titanium that is placed down into the jaw, where a natural tooth would be. The procedure is no more uncomfortable than a dental extraction, but we offer several types of sedation dentistry just to put your mind at ease!
Replacing teeth has never been easier. A full denture will replace all of your teeth at one time. Traditional dentures are removable, and are secured in place by hugging the contour of your jaw while creating a seal against your gum tissues.
If you are only missing some of your teeth rather than all of them, a partial denture is another alternative to a bridge or multiple dental implants. Removable partial dentures clasp into place around your existing teeth.
Our dentists have changed hundreds of smiles through our in-house implant treatments. But implants aren’t just for replacing single teeth with a crown or a fixed bridge. They can also be used to permanently support your denture in place – giving you a slimmer, more comfortable denture that is highly aesthetically pleasing.
