Do you suffer from a weakened bite and appearance due to damaged, broken, or missing teeth? Restore your full smile with a dental bridge, dentures, or partial dentures from Olympia Hills Family Dental.
Having a broken or damaged bite and smile can be tough—you lose confidence in both your ability to eat what you want and smile when you’re happy or enthusiastic. Dr. Jerame Hafen and Dr. Christine Gonzalez want to help you regain your confidence and your ability to live comfortably with proven restorative dentistry techniques and methods.
What are Dental Bridges?
The loss of a single tooth can have a major impact on your dental health and personal appearance.
When one or more teeth are missing, not only you have to deal with the unsightly gaps in your smile, but also the remaining teeth can shift out of their normal position. These teeth are more susceptible to decay or gum disease because they are more difficult to clean around.
A non-removable dental bridge can restore you teeth to normal function by replacing missing teeth. It will improve the entire health of your mouth by keeping the surrounding teeth in position and can also help maintain the structure or your face and jaw.
A popular alternative to a dental bridge is dental implants.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are a tooth replacement option that are crafted to provide the characteristics (shape and color) of natural teeth, and can be formulated for a single, multiple, or a full arch worth of teeth.
Advances have been made in the materials used for dentures and in the way they are designed. If you already have dentures (partial or full arch) you may be experiencing a loose fit or denture slipping. This can lead to gum sores that can affect your chewing and your speech and decrease your confidence when speaking or laughing with others.
We can also provide denture re-lines if needed.
We offer partial dentures, which are flexible and more comfortable than standard dentures, due to their thinness and lightweight. These partials are designed to let your natural tissue tone appear through the material, matching the basic shade categories.
