You should never leave gaps in your grin empty for long. Pick up the phone and call Dr. Guillen to get started exploring the different possibilities for replacing one, multiple, or even an entire set of teeth so that you still have a complete smile to show off to the world.

Dental Bridges

If you want your new tooth or teeth to stay permanently in your mouth, a fixed bridge is a good solution. The restoration is made out of a pair of crowns and a number of prosthetic teeth called pontics. The crowns are attached to your natural teeth while the pontics fill in the gap. A bridge will let you eat and speak normally again without worrying about your dental prosthetic coming loose at an awkward time.

If you’ve experienced advanced tooth loss including numerous consecutive and nonconsecutive teeth or a full row of teeth, we may recommend partial or full dentures. Partials are used to fill gaps in smiles. A gum-colored base that’s molded to fit between healthy teeth supports natural looking replacement teeth. The entire prosthetic is held in place with metal clasps that are attached to the remaining healthy teeth. A full denture is similarly made from a gum-colored base that supports a full arch of replacement teeth. Since there are no surrounding teeth to support the restoration, a full denture is made to fit snuggly against the gums, and it is held in place through natural suction. Some patients also use a small amount of denture adhesive to add stability to their denture. If you’d like a more natural looking and feeling solution, we also offer dental implant supported partial and full dentures.

Dental Implants

Before you receive a crown, bridge, or denture to replace your teeth, we can insert dental implant posts directly into the jawbone. Implants can perform the same functions as natural tooth roots and improve the strength and stability of the restorations they support. Our practice works closely with specialists who will handle the implant surgery before we provide your customized restoration. Call us today to learn more about the implant process and how it works.
