Replacing Single Teeth

Dealing with tooth loss can be a deeply destabilizing experience for patients of all ages. The good news is that our team creates attractive, customized replacement teeth to help make your smile whole and healthy again. Before crafting your restoration, we will actually look to your natural smile for inspiration and guidance. Once your replacement tooth is in place, you’ll be amazed at how seamlessly it blends in.

Replacing Multiple Teeth

Sometimes patients need to replace multiple missing teeth at once. When this is the case, one treatment option is to use a number of individual replacement teeth to restore the patient’s smile. Alternatively, you may choose to replace several teeth with just one oral appliance, like a denture or a bridge. The key is to make sure that your new restorations work in harmony with your natural smile.

Making Restorations Permanent

Thanks to advancements in the world of restorative dentistry, patients no longer need to settle for replacement teeth that sit on top of the gum tissue. Dental implant technology allows us to permanently secure restorations in your natural jawbone tissue. The small titanium implant roots that hold your “teeth” in place will actually bond with your jawbone tissue over time, helping to ensure a stable connection and support bone health.

If you are living with an incomplete smile, our Saint Louis dental implant dentists want to encourage you to proactively seek out restorative treatment. To get started, you can always call our office or use the Contact Us page on our site to submit a question or comment!
