Replacing Missing Teeth – Newport, RI

To help you restore your smile to be completely functional and full again, we offer several different customized options for replacing missing teeth in our Newport, RI dental office that you can read more about below.

Why Choose Newport Dental Associates for Replacing Missing Teeth?

Dental Bridges

Model of dental bridge used to replace missing teeth

If you’re missing several consecutive teeth, a dental bridge may be a great option for you. This prosthetic is made up of two dental crowns that are adhered to a row of free-standing replacement teeth. The crowns are secured to the two natural teeth on either side of the gap in your smile to hold the restoration in place. Once cemented to your teeth, you can enjoy a completed arch of pearly whites that look natural.

Dentures

If you’re missing several or all of your teeth along an arch, we offer custom-tailored full and partial dentures. They’re both made of a gum-colored acrylic base that houses custom-shaded ceramic replacement teeth. The primary difference between these two types of dentures is that the full denture uses natural suction and adhesive to stay in place, while the partial denture fits between your existing teeth like a puzzle piece. Even though their designs vary slightly, they can both restore your smile.

Dental Implants

Over the last couple of decades, dental implants have become a highly recommended treatment for patients who are missing any number of teeth. Instead of just replacing the biting surface of teeth, they restore the entire structure, including the roots. This allows them to continue providing blood flow and stimulation to your jawbone, preventing deterioration and sagging or hollow-looking cheeks. This also allows them to look and feel completely natural. To learn more about this procedure, click on the link below.
