Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Crowns, Bridges, & Implants

How can we help you?

We encourage our patients to ask any and all questions they have about their dental care. The best outcomes start with a thorough discussion about your needs and wants, and the best place to start is by asking questions. No question is too small, because we want you to be informed and confident with the decisions you make about treatment. 

Here are some of the questions we hear most often, but you probably have many of your own based on your specific needs. If you don't see yours listed here, please give us a call, and we'll find the answer you're looking for!

Crowns, Bridges, & Implants

Replacing missing teeth is important for your oral health and your self-confidence. If you are missing a tooth, you may also have problems chewing and speaking clearly.

If missing teeth cause you embarrassment and discomfort, we offer several options for restoring your smile:

Dental implants are a full replacement tooth that includes an artificial root. Once your implant is placed, our doctors can use a crown, bridge, or denture, to restore function.

Bridges are a restoration that replaces missing teeth and requires the support of neighboring teeth to hold it in place.

Dentures are still an effective option for replacing multiple missing teeth, but today they look more natural and realistic than ever before. We create beautiful customized dentures that are comfortable and complement your appearance. Our dentures are designed to form a secure fit with your jaw. But some people benefit greatly by having implants placed along the gum line for the denture to snap onto. This added stability can make the denture fit much tighter and eliminate the looseness that is commonly associated with dentures.

There is no single solution for tooth replacement that is right for everyone. There’s a lot to consider when looking for the best solution that fits your needs. Budget, time constraints, and even lifestyle should all be part of the decision.

If you have missing teeth and are ready to restore your smile, please call our Baytown dental office. We will be happy to arrange a complimentary consultation to explain all your tooth replacement options.
