Tooth Replacement Options in Jacksonville, TX
Missing teeth must be replaced as soon as possible to avoid bite problems, bone deterioration and other issues. Your Jacksonville, TX dentist offers several tooth replacement options to bring back function and improve your smile’s appearance. We can replace one or several missing teeth with beautiful, high-quality crowns, bridges, dentures, and dental implants.
Crowns are caps that cover the part of the tooth above the gum line. Dental crowns are often used to restore severely damaged teeth, protect a tooth after root canal treatment, cover dental implants, secure fixed bridges and prevent a weak structure from breaking. A typical crown is made in the laboratory and fitted at a later date.
We value your time, so we offer CEREC same-day crowns and inlays/onlays that are placed on the same day they are designed. No more messy impressions (everything is computerized), return trips or waiting! Our same-day restorations are as successful as traditional restorations, and look incredibly lifelike.
Bridges and Dentures
For multiple missing teeth, All Smiles offers dental bridges or removable partial dentures. Bridges consist of crowns that anchor the replacement teeth in the middle, while removable dentures are secured by metal clasps attached to nearby teeth. Bridges and dentures are affordable and effective, but they are not as durable and secure as implant-supported replacement teeth.
Dental implants are small titanium screws that replace the lost tooth roots. Each screw is embedded in the jaw and capped with a crown, bridge or denture. Because implants simulate real teeth from root to crown, they are the most secure teeth replacement option. Dental implants can replace a single lost tooth, several missing teeth or all of your teeth.
