Why Choose Westgate Dental Care for Replacing Missing Teeth?
Patients who are missing consecutive teeth can benefit from our customized dental bridges. These consist of two dental crowns that are attached to either side of free-standing replacement teeth, called pontics. Before we place the restoration, we will prepare the natural teeth on either side of the gap to receive the crowns. After anchoring the bridge in place, you’ll be able to enjoy a complete arch of teeth that’s completely functional.
For patients missing numerous consecutive/nonconsecutive teeth or a full arch of teeth, dentures are an excellent tooth replacement option. Partials are used to fill in gaps between teeth. A gum colored base is crafted to fit between teeth, and metal clasps anchor the partial to remaining healthy teeth. Replacement teeth are custom crafted and attached to the base material to complete the smile line. A full denture is similarly crafted with a gum colored base supporting a full row of replacement teeth. However, there are no healthy teeth remaining to provide support, so the base is crafted to fit snugly against the gum line, creating suction that holds the denture into position.
Our team strives to provide our patients with the best dental solutions. That’s why we offer advanced dental implants to replace any number of missing teeth. They’re able to restore the entire structure of teeth, including the roots. This improves their stability, lifespan, and strength compared to traditional restorations. In addition to all of these unique benefits, dental implants are able to prevent jawbone deterioration, which helps preserve your facial structure.
