After years of wear and tear, an injury, or poor dental care, you can lose the ideal look and function of your smile. The Dental Shoppe can change your life with restorative dentistry and rejuvenate your smile.
Are you missing teeth or suffering with ill-fitting, loose dentures? The Dental Shoppe may have the perfect solution to restore your smile and improve your quality of life: dental implants. By substituting for tooth roots, implants closely mimic nature’s design. Each titanium implant is strategically placed in the jaw, where it integrates with your existing bone to create a solid foundation for a crown, bridge or denture. Implants promote bone retention and look and function like natural teeth. With proper care, they can last a lifetime. Ask The Dental Shoppe team about whether implants can rejuvenate your smile!
Implant Supported Dentures
While run-of-the-mill dentures shift and require adhesives to keep them in place, implant supported dentures fit solidly, reducing problems such as gum sores, difficulty speaking and difficulty chewing. By distributing your biting pressure more like natural teeth than traditional dentures, implant supported dentures even stimulate the supportive structures of your teeth and prevent bone and soft tissues from shrinking away. Especially if traditional dentures haven’t worked well for you, consider implant supported dentures.
A well-fitting denture is very important to your lasting oral health. A proper fit ensures that your dentures will allow you to retain much of your function, which is important for maintaining natural muscle tone in your face and jaw and keeping you looking and feeling healthy. Your team at The Dental Shoppe will design your dentures for the best possible fit, giving you a lifelike smile and helping you retain a natural lifestyle.
Partial dentures are the perfect restoration if you have several teeth missing that cannot be corrected with a bridge. Your custom designed partial denture from The Dental Shoppe is removable and made from a synthetic material that is supported with a lightweight metal. Mimicking your gum tissue and teeth, partial dentures create a natural looking smile while helping you retain function.
With a crown from The Dental Shoppe, you can erase years of wear and tear. Using a tooth-like crown made of gold or porcelain, your dentist can restore your tooth after the decay has been removed. Crowns are also used to restore chipped teeth, broken teeth, gaps in teeth and other damage.
If you’ve lost a tooth, a large gap in your smile is more than an eyesore; it can create significant problems for your dental health if left uncorrected. Gradually, your bite pressure may shift to other parts of your mouth to compensate for an inability to chew efficiently. Then, neighboring teeth may begin to move into the gap resulting in discomfort and pain. After some preparation of the two neighboring teeth, your dentist creates crowns for them, then fuses a prosthetic tooth between them. This device literally “bridges the gap” in your smile.
Sometimes removing tooth decay effectively requires the removal of a portion of your tooth. Your dentist then replaces the removed portion with a porcelain inlay or onlay, custom designed to fill the space left behind. Like traditional fillings, inlays and onlays were traditionally made out of precious metals, but porcelain-milled inlays and onlays are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. Ask your Dental Shoppe team if an inlay or onlay can provide you relief if you’re experiencing chewing pain, cavity pain or tooth degeneration.
