Vero Beach Crowns & Bridges

Helping Patients Enjoy Optimal Tooth Function

Please call our office at (772) 569-9781 to learn how prosthodontics can improve your smile. 

Restoring Normal Tooth Function

When teeth are missing, eating and speaking normally can be difficult. If you’ve been hiding your smile, we offer Vero Beach prosthodontics to restore the natural beauty of your smile and proper function of your teeth. While our primary goal is to preserve your natural teeth whenever possible, teeth can be lost despite your best efforts.

We offer prosthodontics for teeth that are lost in a number of different ways. If you have missing teeth due to trauma, aging, infection, or periodontal disease, we offer several options for dental appliances to replace your missing teeth. We utilize the best treatments and technology to deliver exceptional quality care to our patients.

Crowns vs Bridges 

Crowns and bridges are both dental restorations, but they serve different purposes and have distinct differences:

Dental Crowns:

  • Individual Restoration: Crowns are used to restore and strengthen individual teeth that are damaged, decayed, or weakened.
  • Coverage: Crowns cover the entire visible portion of the tooth above the gumline, providing protection and support.
  • Single Tooth Replacement: Crowns are typically used to restore a single damaged tooth, providing durability and aesthetics.

Dental Bridges:

  • Multiple Tooth Replacement: Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth by anchoring artificial teeth (pontics) between two crowns.
  • Support: Bridges rely on adjacent teeth (abutment teeth) or dental implants for support, providing stability and function.
  • Fixed Restoration: Unlike removable dentures, bridges are fixed in place and cannot be removed by the patient.

Our Prosthodontic Services

Whether you have one missing tooth, several teeth in a row, or all your teeth are missing, we offer Vero Beach prosthodontics to replace your natural teeth. The right treatment depends on the number of teeth missing, which teeth are missing, and the health of your gums and bone.

We offer prosthodontic treatments that include:

  • Dental Implants – Dental implants provide a stable, durable, and natural feeling restoration for replacing a missing tooth. The dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed in the jawbone to provide an artificial root for missing teeth. Implants can be used with a crown for a single missing tooth or to hold bridges and dentures in place.
  • Full Dentures – Full or complete dentures are used when all the teeth in the upper or lower arch are missing. Dentures are designed to match the natural color of teeth and gums to restore your appearance and function of the teeth.
  • Partial Dentures – A partial denture is used when the patient has lost some of their teeth. Partials are designed to replace the missing teeth and attach to the surrounding natural teeth for better stability and function.
  • Bridges – A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. Bridges can be either fixed or removable and crafted from a variety of materials, including porcelain, gold, and alloys.
  • Immediate Dentures After Extraction – You don’t have to live without teeth after an extraction. We offer immediate dentures after extraction, so you will have teeth while the gum tissue heals.

We offer a free consultation for prosthodontics, so you can have your mouth examined and learn about the options that are available for replacing your missing teeth. Our dentist will discuss the possible treatments that can be used to restore your teeth, answer your questions, and help you make the best decision for your oral health.
