At Kingsgate Dental, Kirkland, WA area patients who are faced with missing teeth will need to contact a restorative dentist to learn about replacement options. Damage to teeth may also require additional attention to protect the rest of the remaining tooth. Dr. Ann Kelley understands that not everyone’s situation is the same, and by offering various solutions, patients can choose the one right for them. When missing teeth or damage to existing teeth are a problem, our team can help with restorations such as bridges and crowns.
- Bridges – bridges are dental restorations made to replace missing teeth. They are fabricated to use the adjacent teeth for support while holding a false tooth called a pontic in the same space as the previous tooth. The bridge is bonded in place and can replace one or more teeth in a row. Bridges are more permanent than a partial denture, which is removable and has a more aesthetic appearance.
- Crowns – dental crowns are another restoration used by our team at Kingsgate Dental. Dr. Jennifer Nation and her team recommend dental crowns in many different situations. They can be bonded over a broken or weakened tooth, covering all visible portions of the tooth above the gumline. Dental crowns are also made to fit over the abutment of a dental implant to act as a false tooth when replacing a single tooth. Crowns are fabricated from porcelain that matches the patient’s existing teeth for seamless integration.
What about dental implants?
Dental implants are another option for our patients to consider when faced with tooth loss. These restorations are also available with Dr. Ann Kelley of Kingsgate Dental, though patients need to be a proper candidate for placement to ensure success. During a consultation visit, our team will evaluate an individual to determine the best restorative procedure for their needs.
