Our Vancouver dentists use a variety of artificial tooth replacements for missing teeth and to help restore the structure of your smile and your dental health.
A dental bridge is one or more artificial teeth that a dentist uses to fill a gap of one or more missing teeth.
Your dentist may use a dental bridge to help restore the natural contour of your smile, repair your bite, and assist in preventing other teeth from shifting or falling out.
Dental bridges are custom-made for each patient and may be difficult to distinguish from natural teeth.
Dentures are artificial teeth and gums that your dentist uses to replace lost or removed natural teeth.
Dentures can be used to replace an entire jaw of missing teeth (full dentures), or just a few missing teeth (partial dentures).
They are custom-designed to fit your mouth and matched to your existing natural teeth.
Your dentist may place a dental implant as part of the process to replace a missing tooth.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed into your jaw bone to help support a tooth replacement.
Together, the implant and the tooth replacement look and act like a natural tooth. Learn More
