Options for replacing teeth

Replacing missing teeth must be done as soon as possible to protect the smile. When adult teeth are missing from disease, extraction, or trauma, they can leave spaces, which allow the remaining teeth to shift out of place. This results in gaps that can only be addressed with orthodontics. Instead, patients should speak to Dr. Terry Vines of Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry to learn about affordable, effective ways of restoring the smile.

When teeth are missing, there are three primary options available to patients:


Full and partial dentures are used by many patients seeking an economical solution to their tooth loss. Partial dentures are used for one or more missing teeth while full dentures replace the entire arch. Dentures are made to snap in and out easily and can restore function and beauty at the same time.


Bridges are a fixed option and use the surrounding teeth for support. They are made of porcelain and are designed to match the existing teeth to blend in seamlessly with the smile. Many patients like bridges because they are more stable than dentures but are not as expensive as dental implants.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are considered one of the best, most effective ways of restoring the smile. Implants provide the strength necessary to keep the false tooth functioning as a natural tooth. Dr. Terry Vines will often suggest dental implants to patients with enough jawbone to support them. Dental implants can last a lifetime, which makes them a popular solution for individuals looking for long-term restorations.
