Dealing with a gap in your smile isn’t easy, and it can negatively affect your oral health, which is why our team invites you look into your options for tooth replacement. Today, the world offers many dental treatments that can restore a full, complete smile. Our team is pleased to offer three long-lasting tooth replacement services that can change your smile and your life:

Dental Bridges
A dental bridge can be an excellent option to fill a gap in your mouth if you wish to avoid oral surgery. A dental bridge consists of one or more artificial teeth between two dental crowns, and it is anchored to the surrounding teeth to provide natural-looking results for your smile.

Dentures
These removable dental appliances can replace multiple missing teeth whenever you desire to wear a full smile. We can provide two denture products–partial and complete dentures. While partial dentures fill a moderate-sized gap in your mouth, complete dentures fill a full arch.

Dental Implants
You can benefit from a dental implant if you are looking to replace both the missing tooth and its root. Unlike dentures and dental bridges, implants require surgery and a period to recover before they are placed, but they provide permanent and natural-looking results. An oral surgeon places a small implant post in the jawbone, and then Dr. Derek C. Barnes can cover it with a custom-made dental crown or another dental restoration.
