One missing tooth can turn into an absolutely devastating oral health issue if it isn’t replaced right away. And of course, the more teeth you lose, the more your ability to speak and eat normally will be impacted. Dr. Luke and Dr. Kingsberg can provide many different kinds of custom-made replacements for one, multiple or even an entire row of missing teeth. Call us today to set up an appointment and start learning more about your options for replacing missing teeth in Denver, CO.
A bridge can either be used to replace a single tooth or several teeth in a row. The restoration is made out of two crowns and an appropriate number of false teeth called pontics. The crowns are anchored to natural teeth, making them both stable and sturdy. Unlike dentures, bridges aren’t removable, and that means they don’t come loose when you’re chewing your food or speaking in public; many patients tell us that it feels very natural.
Any number of missing teeth can be replaced with dental implants. Your standard dental restoration only replaces the crown – the portion that everyone else sees when you smile or laugh. Only dental implants can act as a substitute for the roots of the teeth, performing all of the functions that are required for a truly strong and healthy smile. Our dental office is able to perform the entire procedure from start to finish without having to send you to another specialist.
Today’s dentures are smaller, sleeker, and stronger than anything your parents or grandparents might have worn. Consisting of a natural-looking, gum-colored base that will be custom-fitted to your mouth and attractive artificial teeth, our dentures can help patients regain their ability to smile and eat with confidence again with just one prosthetic. We offer partial dentures for those with remaining teeth, full dentures, and even implant dentures that perfectly recreate the strength, stability, and aesthetics of real teeth.
