With a dental implant, a patient doesn’t just get a new tooth, but a new tooth root as well. A small titanium post is placed into the jawbone that serves as the foundation for a crown, bridge, or denture. Compared to every other tooth replacement option, dental implants are the closest thing to real teeth. They have unmatched strength, a natural look, and have been shown to last for 30 years to a lifetime for a wide variety of patients.
Today’s dentures are nothing like the ones your parents or grandparents had. They are extremely secure, exceedingly comfortable, and can be made to have a lifelike appearance that perfectly mimics nature. We can provide partial and full dentures depending on a patient’s needs, and we can even combine them with dental implants to give someone a rock-solid fit that will last for decades.
If you’re not ready to commit to veneers, or you’re looking for the most budget-friendly way to transform your look, Snap-On Smile may be perfect for you. Dr. Alani is the leading provider of this service in the United States. She designs a custom, removable prosthetic that fits in seamlessly with your natural features and disguises the aesthetic flaws in your teeth. Snap-On Smiles are made of a durable resin and can stand up for everyday eating and drinking.
A dental bridge offers a relatively simple way to replace one to three teeth in a row. A crown is fitted over the remaining teeth on either side of the gap, and these are used to support dental crowns. Our bridges are made from tooth-colored materials so they look perfectly natural, and they are also strong enough that patients can eat whatever they like without having to think twice about their prosthetics.
Made of a thin and flexible but strong acrylic, a Nesbit Partial is an excellent option for a patient who is only missing one or two consecutive teeth on one side of their mouth. Unlike a regular partial denture, a Nesbit is held in place using gum-colored clasps that blend into the smile. Aesthetically, it is seamless, and it also enables a patient to chew and speak comfortably. All in all, it’s a denture that doesn’t look like a denture!
