Why Choose Tijerina Family & Cosmetic Dentistry for Replacing Missing Teeth?

Dental Bridges

The standard for tooth replacement, dental bridges are ideal for those who are missing one or more consecutive teeth. To create the bridge, a series of crowns (typically three to four) are fused together. The crowns in the center of the bridge act as the replacement tooth (or teeth) while the crowns on either end are meant to fit on top of existing healthy teeth. This means a small amount of enamel needs to be removed so that the bridge has a proper foundation

Dentures

When you have several missing teeth on opposite sides of the mouth or you’re missing all teeth in a given arch, a full or partial denture might be the best option for you. For one, dentures are quite affordable considering the number of teeth they can physically replace at a time. Each denture is customized to fit the natural shape of your mouth. Once fabricated, you’ll get a chance to try it on and confirm that it fits properly.

Dental Implants

If you want to replace the entire root of your missing teeth and ensure the most natural-feeling tooth replacement possible, dental implants are the best option to consider. Not only do they work to protect your remaining bone tissue after placement, but they also help you make sure that your biting force remains strong. After surgical placement is complete, you’ll need to wait several months before the permanent restoration can be attached. This healing period is crucial to ensuring that it remains healthy for decades to come.
