It’s never too late to get the full smile you deserve after tooth loss.

So, you’re missing teeth, but you aren’t sure which replacement option is the right one for you. No problem. That’s where our Chehalis, WA, dentist Dr. Michael White and his expertise comes in handy. Restorative dentistry has made some incredible strides over the years, allowing our dental team to provide patients with amazingly durable and lifelike tooth replacement options that blend right in.

Here are just some of the popular restorations we use to replace missing teeth,

Dental Implants

Since implants mimic the look and function of a real tooth, they have quickly become a popular way for adults to replace one or more teeth. This metal post is placed into the jawbone where it takes the place of your tooth roots. Over the course of 3-6 months, the bone and tissue will grow around the implant, making it a permanent part of the jawbone. From there, an implant can support a false tooth.

If you are a healthy individual who is missing one or more teeth then you could very well be a candidate for dental implants. Our Chehalis, WA, restorative dentist will examine your mouth and jawbone to make sure that they are healthy enough for implants.

Bridges

If you are looking for an easy way to fill a gap in your smile then a dental bridge may be a fast solution. Bridges are a commonly placed restoration that offers a way for patients who are a bit more budget-conscious to get the false teeth they need to restore their smile. In order to get a dental bridge, our dental team will need to make sure that the natural teeth surrounding the gap are strong enough to support the bridge. From there, natural teeth are prepped and crowns are cemented into place over these teeth to support the one or two false teeth in the middle.

Full Dentures

Are you dealing with complete tooth loss? If so, full dentures can provide you with an easy and fast solution to getting a full set of teeth gain. Full dentures are customized to your mouth’s measurements to provide the best possible fit. Full dentures can be used to replace either your upper or lower teeth, and are place in a matter of weeks.
