FAQs About Replacement Teeth Answered By Our Cheney Dentists

Written by Dr. Collins on May 7, 2019

There are more tooth replacement options than ever before available to patients suffering from tooth loss. Our Cheney dental implant dentists are here to help our patients evaluate their treatment options, and, ultimately, achieve healthy, complete smiles that they love.

What kinds of tooth replacement options do you offer in-office?

Our team provides tooth replacement treatments to restore individual teeth up through whole smiles. A single dental implant is an excellent option for filling a lone gap in a patient’s smile. Full dentures are used to quickly and completely replace a complement of teeth.

The thing to keep in mind is that it is now possible for our dentists to permanently anchor prostheses, like dentures, using a few strategically placed mini dental implant roots. Dental appliances which were previously designed to sit on top of the gum tissue can now be fully integrated into the patient’s smile.

How do I know that my new teeth will look “right” for me?

All of the tooth loss treatments that we provide are all customized to fit the patient’s unique needs. This entails shaping, sizing, and shading the porcelain or resin that we use to match the appearance of the patient’s teeth. One thing to keep in mind: if you want to improve discoloration on your natural dental enamel, it is best to do this before your replacement teeth are completed, as this will allow us to match your restoration to your newly-whitened smile.

What is it like to live with replacement teeth post-treatment?

No matter what type of restorative treatment you choose, you’ll find that replacement teeth have come a long way in recent memory. Dental implants, and implant-stabilized dentures, for example, stay in place permanently, allow you to eat and drink all of your favorite things, and can be cared for with a normal ADA-compliant oral hygiene routine. Many people report that they practically forget they have dental implants all together!
