It might be surprising, but tens of millions of Americans are missing at least one tooth. Many don’t have any teeth at all, but Allen Smile Design hopes to change that. At our office, you can replace teeth in a variety of different ways, and we work with you to find a solution that best fits your needs. If you’re in need of a reliable tooth replacement solution, Dr. Lewis is happy to play a role in your smile journey!
Need to replace one to two teeth at a time? With traditional dental bridges, we fuse a series of crowns together, then make minor adjustments to your existing teeth sitting adjacent to the gap in your smile. We then place the bridge on top, giving it a reliable foundation for daily use. Dental bridges can also be combined with dental implants depending on your preferences. We’ll make sure your bridge feels good and fits comfortably, so you can smile with confidence.
When you have multiple missing teeth in opposite sides of the mouth or you’re missing all teeth in your arch, a partial or full denture is more ideal. Each denture is made with gum-colored and tooth-colored materials, so your new smile looks natural to those around you. We’ll help you get accustomed to it if it’s your first denture or we’ll replace your current denture if it’s no longer fitting comfortably.
Does your dental bridge not feel quite right? Wish your denture wouldn’t keep shifting out of place? Unlike bridges and dentures, dental implants work to replace the root portion of your tooth as well as the restoration. Once integrated with your jaw and bone tissue, we’ll place an abutment, which connects your permanent restoration directly to the implant. Whether you need to replace single or all teeth in your smile, it can be done with versatile dental implant treatment.
