Missing teeth aren’t just a cosmetic problem. With a full smile, even speaking clearly and chewing your favorite foods become extremely difficult tasks. Our dentists at Dulce Dental have seen many different forms of tooth loss and can offer a variety of dazzling, custom-made options to fill in any number of gaps or even entire arches.

A bridge is made up of a pair of dental crowns and at least one prosthetic tooth called a pontic. We may suggest a dental bridge if you’ve lost up to three teeth in a row. The crowns will be placed on two of your natural teeth; the pontics are what will fill in the actual gap. Because they’re held firmly in place by healthy dental structures, dental bridges tend to be a highly durable and stable option for tooth replacement.
Partial dentures are typically reserved for more extensive cases of tooth loss – specifically when many teeth are missing but you still have enough worth saving. Each partial denture is custom designed to fill in the gaps in your smile wherever they’re located. Of course, when an entire arch of teeth is missing, full dentures are often your best option. No matter what kind of denture you need, we’ll give you a new smile that you can feel confident going out in public with.
Dentures and bridges have to be replaced every few years. Dental implants are far more permanent, lasting decades at a time. They’re the only type of tooth replacement that accounts for the entire tooth structure, including the root. Since they’re made of titanium, they can integrate with the jawbone itself for maximum stability. With the right number of implants, we can provide stronger, more reliable, and more attractive replacements for any number of teeth.
