Lanier Family & Cosmetic Dentistry offers several options for patients with missing teeth. Advances in modern dentistry mean replacement teeth are more comfortable and natural looking than ever. With more options, your dentist can also help you find the best solution that fits your health needs, aesthetic goals and budget.
Options For Missing Teeth
At the basic level, there are three options for replacing missing teeth: dental bridges, implants and dentures. Each type of treatment has its own advantages. Our dentists will help you choose which treatment is right for you.
A dental bridge can be one of the most affordable ways to replace missing teeth. We offer the option of a traditional fixed bridge, supported by dental crowns or a dental bridge that is supported by dental implants.
A dental implant is a more permanent solution for missing teeth. The implant actually replaces the root of the tooth, becoming fully integrated with the bone. Dental Implants offer both cosmetic and restorative dental health benefits. Learn more about dental implants:

A denture is used when a person is missing all of their upper or lower teeth. The denture can either be removable or secured using dental implants. An implant denture is more expensive than a removable denture, but it offers patients a higher quality of life and level of comfort.
