Losing teeth can significantly impact your smile, self-confidence, and ability to chew food. However, modern dental technology offers several effective solutions for replacing missing teeth. At iSmile Dentistry, with locations across Utah and Arizona, we provide top-notch dental restoration services tailored to meet the needs and preferences of our patients. Discover our options for dental implants, bridges, and dentures, designed to restore your smile and improve oral health.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a popular and effective long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. At iSmile Dentistry, we specialize in high-quality dental implants that function like natural teeth and are designed for durability and aesthetics.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants involve the insertion of a titanium post directly into the jawbone, which serves as a robust foundation for a prosthetic tooth. Over time, the implant integrates with the bone, providing stability comparable to that of natural teeth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Durability: Implants are a long-lasting solution that can serve you well for many years with proper care.
  • Functionality: They restore full chewing power and can be brushed and flossed just like natural teeth.
  • Aesthetics: Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth, enhancing your smile and facial structure.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are another excellent option for replacing one or more missing teeth. They bridge the gap created by missing teeth and are supported by natural teeth or implants.

Types of Dental Bridges

  • Traditional Bridges: These are the most common type and involve creating a crown for the teeth on either side of the missing tooth, with a pontic in between.
  • Cantilever Bridges: Used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth.
  • Maryland Bridges: These are minimal and use a metal or porcelain framework bonded onto the backs of adjacent teeth.

Advantages of Dental Bridges

  • Prevention of Misalignment: Bridges prevent remaining teeth from shifting, which can lead to bite issues and other dental problems.
  • Enhancement of Functionality and Appearance: They help restore your ability to chew and speak properly and improve the overall look of your smile.

Complete and Partial Dentures

Whether you’re missing several teeth or all of your teeth, dentures offer a functional and aesthetic solution. iSmile Dentistry provides both complete and partial dentures, designed to restore your smile and facial structure.

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures are used when all teeth are missing and can be fitted to the top or bottom gum line. They are held in place by suction or, occasionally, with the help of an adhesive.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are ideal when you still have some of your natural teeth. These dentures are beneficial not only for aesthetic appearance but also for preventing your natural teeth from shifting.

Benefits of Dentures

  • Versatility: Dentures are customized to fit each patient’s mouth for comfort and effectiveness.
  • Improved Oral Health: They help maintain the structure of your mouth, supporting your facial muscles and reducing oral bone loss.
