SOUTH CAPITOL SMILE CENTER, WASHINGTON DC
If you have several teeth missing that cannot be corrected with an implant or a bridge, consider partial dentures to replace those teeth. Your custom-designed partial denture from the South Capitol Smile Center will fit comfortably in your mouth and blend in with your remaining teeth. This type of denture is removable, made from a synthetic material that is supported with a lightweight metal. It mimics your gum tissue and teeth to create a natural-looking smile while still remaining functional.
Q: What are my options to replace a missing tooth?
A: By replacing missing teeth either with a bridge or implant, you will alleviate the problems associated with missing a tooth and give your smile back its beautiful, full and functional appearance. A bridge is one solution for replacing a tooth. By using neighboring teeth as the supportive structure, Dr. Samaddar places a porcelain restoration into the vacant space, restoring the functionality and look of your smile. A dental implant is also an excellent solution. Dental implants involve the placement of a titanium post directly into the jawbone. Once the post has bonded to the bone, it can act as a new, solid support for a natural looking porcelain restoration. Implants can replace a single tooth, or an entire set of teeth, offering more function and permanence than traditional dentures.
