- Fully Customized Dentures and Bridges

A dental bridge can be used to replace one tooth, but it can also fill in gaps left by multiple consecutive teeth. The crowns at either end of the bridge are anchored to your natural teeth so that the false teeth between them (known as “pontics”) can fill in the space. The crowns and the pontics are made out of tooth-colored materials that can be shaded to match your specific smile, making your new teeth look as dazzling and natural as your other teeth.
Dentures & Partials
If you need to replace multiple missing teeth or even a full row of teeth, let our Dublin dental team talk to you about receiving treatment with a removable prosthetic. Using a custom-made partial denture, we can help you complete your smile with a prosthetic that fits around the gaps in your smile like a puzzle piece. We can also create a full denture for anyone who needs to replace all of their upper or lower teeth. In both cases, you’ll have a prosthetic that looks natural and improves your smile’s functionality but is also easy to remove.
Dental implants are in a class of their own compared to traditional bridges and dentures. They’re permanently anchored to your jawbone so that they can act like tooth roots. Not only will they stop your new teeth from moving around, but they can also stimulate the jawbone to stop it from breaking down over time. If you’re interested in dental implants but aren’t sure if they’re the right choice for you, you can schedule a consultation with us so that we can examine your mouth and determine whether you’re a candidate for the treatment.
