Do your missing teeth cause you to sit quietly while spending time with family and friends because you don’t want to draw attention to yourself? Do they make speaking and eating always feel uncomfortable? These are very common problems, and they’re ones Dr. Lam can easily help you solve. She can offer you a selection of custom-made replacements that are guaranteed to bring your complete smile back and your confidence right along with it. To learn more about your options with us, contact our Wheaton dental office today.
Bridges get their name from the fact that they literally “bridge” the gap between one or more missing teeth in a row. Dr. Lam will place dental crowns on the teeth adjacent to the missing ones, and these will be used to support prosthetic teeth that fill in the space. They can replace a single tooth and up to three consecutive ones, and they can be fixed or removable depending on a patient’s preferences.
Dentures have been helping people with several missing teeth eat, speak, and smile with confidence for generations, and right here in Wheaton, you can get the very best dental prosthetics that modern-day dentistry has to offer. Our dentures are made using custom-crafted ceramic teeth that are attached to a realistic-looking gum-colored base, helping them blend seamlessly into any smile. Whether you are missing just a few teeth or an entire row, we can make a denture that has the perfect look and fit just for you.
For patients looking for a permanent solution to their tooth loss, we’re ready and able to give it to them. Dental implants are the only treatment available today that replaces an entire tooth both above and below the gum line, providing a look, strength, and function that can only be matched by a natural tooth. Dr. Lam can give you your own specially-made implant restorations right here in Wheaton, and in the end, only you and she will know which teeth aren’t actually real!
