Whether you’re missing one tooth or an entire arch of teeth, it’s important to have gaps in your smile replaced to ensure that you’re able to preserve the function and health of your remaining pearly whites. To help, we offer several customized restorative solutions and have a prosthodontic specialist on-staff to achieve the best results possible. To learn more about how we can restore your smile, contact our dental office today to schedule an appointment to discuss your options to replace missing teeth in Baltimore, MD!
If you’re missing one or more consecutive teeth along an arch, we can craft dental bridges to help literally bridge the gap between one of your natural teeth and the other. These restorations can be made from porcelain or ceramic and consist of two dental crowns placed on either side of free-standing replacement teeth, known as pontics. Once attached to your existing natural teeth, you will be able to enjoy a completed, beautiful smile.
Missing several or all of your teeth along an arch is a life-changing event. To help make your experience with tooth loss better, we offer partial and full dentures that restore the function of your mouth, allowing you to easily eat and speak, as well as the overall look of your smile. Partial dentures are specially designed to fit around your existing teeth, while full dentures are made to utilize the base of your gums and natural suction to stay securely in place.
For our patients who want a more permanent and natural-looking and feeling tooth replacement solution, whether they’re missing one tooth or an entire arch, we recommend modern dental implants. This restorative solution replaces the entire structure of missing teeth from the roots upward. Not only does this provide you with new teeth that rival any other traditional restoration, but it also allows you to enjoy several unique benefits, like prevention of the deterioration of your jawbone.
Our full mouth reconstruction process blends both restorative and cosmetic dental services to help you achieve a smile that’s custom-crafted to fit your aesthetic and functional needs. It can include treatments like dental crowns, bridges, porcelain veneers, gum recontouring, and cosmetic bonding. We use virtual smile design, which crafts a real-life-looking digital blueprint of your mouth to show you what you can expect the results to look like when your full reconstruction is complete.
