Rebuilding Smiles Affected by Tooth Loss
Tooth loss is more common than you may think.

If you find yourself a part of this statistic, you don’t have to just accept that your smile will never be whole again.

Traditional dental bridges are used to replace one or more consecutive missing teeth. The restoration itself is comprised of two main parts: dental crowns that anchor the bridge to existing teeth and free-standing replacement teeth called pontics. Once the two existing teeth on either side of the gap in your smile are fitted with crowns, the pontics will be secured in place, and your smile will be complete.
Missing several or all of your teeth can have a major impact on your daily life, making basic tasks like eating and speaking much more difficult. With full or partial traditional dentures that are custom-designed, your quality of life can drastically be improved. Dr. Garland utilizes high-quality materials like gum-colored acrylic and professionally shaded ceramic and resin to create strong, natural-looking replacement teeth here at our dental office near Houston Acres.
Crowns, bridges, and dentures can all be anchored to dental implants to enhance their stability, longevity, and lifelike look and feel. Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed below the gumline and into the jawbone to restore the root structure of missing teeth. Once they have fused with the bone, customized restorations can be attached to them to rebuild your smile and renew your oral health.
