Out of the many tooth replacement options available to you, dental implants offer the most comprehensive approach thanks to the method in which they integrate with the bone and soft tissue. Once they are placed and have fully healed, a porcelain crown, bridge, or denture can be attached to them to replace teeth. This process makes them durable, long-lasting and reliable. With routine care and regular exams and cleanings, you can expect them to last between 25 years and a lifetime.
Through a dental bridge, you can effectively replace missing teeth and improve your ability to eat the foods you enjoy. Each dental bridge is customized to fit over existing teeth, much like a traditional crown. The main difference is a bridge consists of multiple crowns fused together. The crowns on either end fit on top of teeth and the crowns in between bridge the gap in your smile. With proper care, you can expect your dental bridge to last between 10 and 15 years.
For many years, dentures were the standard option for tooth replacement, including the most severe cases. Today, they are still widely affordable and ideal for those missing several teeth on opposite sides of their mouth or all teeth in the top or bottom arch. Dr. Candon uses tooth- and gum-colored materials to design and create your future smile, so you can expand your diet and smile with more confidence. We’ll work with you as you get acclimated to their use as well as make any adjustments as needed.
