Generating Perfect Smiles with General Dentistry
In many cases, even a single tooth can cause a patient pain and discomfort. Our expertise makes our Vero Beach office the perfect place to handle these situations. As trained prosthodontists, we’re ready to handle even the most challenging situations. We take unhealthy conditions and restore them to their optimal quality through a combination of advanced education and state-of-the-art technology. Nobody is better positioned to help you not only get out of pain, but put you in a position to avoid the pitfalls of poor oral health than our team.
Patients looking for an affordable and reliable tooth replacement option may find that dentures fit their needs. If you’re lost only some of your teeth, our team here in Vero Beach can design a customized and lifelike partial denture that comfortably fills in your gaps like a puzzle-piece. These dentures stay in place with the help of clips and brackets, and they’re easily removable for maximum comfort during sleep, as well as more ease during your regular oral hygiene routine.
Full dentures, like their name implies, are intended for patients who’ve lost their entire bottom arch of teeth, top arch, or both. They consist of a replacement row attached to a gum-colored base, and they stay in place inside the mouth with the help of natural suction or dental adhesive. Full dentures allow patients who’ve experienced severe tooth loss to speak, eat, and smile much more easily and confidently. Thanks to our skilled team’s cosmetic efforts, they can even help rejuvenate your facial appearance! Like partial dentures, they can be removed whenever needed.
When a patient has experienced severe enough decay or damage to a tooth that a filling just can’t fix, that’s where a dental crown comes in. By effectively “capping” off the area, they can restore much-needed structure, function, and aesthetic value. The process is simple enough – first, our Vero Beach dental team will inspect the tooth in question and create a detailed mold that will be sent off to a trusted lab. Once we’ve received your personalized, all-porcelain crown, we’ll invite you back to the office so that we can place it and ensure your complete satisfaction and comfort.
If you’re missing one or more teeth in a row but prefer a more fixed tooth replacement solution than traditional dentures, a dental bridge can provide the sturdiness you’re looking for. This restoration consists of a series of crowns that have been fused together in a way that looks natural and rebuilds your smile effectively. It is required that you have healthy teeth on either side of the gap in question,; additional crowns will be used to anchor your new bridge to those teeth as a way of holding it securely in place.
