We see tooth loss all the time here at Creating Smiles, PC, and while it can be a serious problem for both someone’s oral health and appearance, it’s a relatively easy fix thanks to the expertise of our team. With custom-made bridges, dentures, or state-of-the-art dental implants, our dentist can replace any number of teeth with beautiful, natural-looking restorations that can be trusted to last for decades to come. If you’re tired of having an incomplete smile, we’re ready to help, so contact us today for a FREE consultation to discuss your options for replacing missing teeth in Valparaiso, IN.
If you’re missing just one tooth, or even three right next to each other, we can place a bridge to restore both your smile and bite. A row of dental crowns is bonded together, and the ones on either end are fitted over the teeth next to the space in the dental arch. These prosthetics are extremely stable and secure, and they can also prevent the neighboring teeth from shifting out of place, which is extremely common after tooth loss.
These custom-made prosthetics are designed to fit comfortably within the mouth and bring back all missing teeth at the same time. Partials can fill in gaps between any healthy remaining teeth like a piece of a puzzle, while a full denture can bring back an entire row by sitting on the gums. In addition to traditional removable dentures, our patients can also get implant-retained dentures to enjoy the most secure fit possible.
Right now, dental implants are the only restoration that can bring back an entire missing tooth from root to crown. A small titanium post is placed into the jawbone, and this is used to support a patient’s new teeth. Implants are extremely strong, durable, and have an appearance that is virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth, making them the ideal option for anyone looking to renew their smile. Our own Dr. Kapers is able to perform the entire procedure from beginning to end, meaning you won’t have to deal with constant referrals to get this treatment (which is normal for other dental offices).
