Bridges and Dentures
Bridges and Dentures in Kingston, PAIf you are missing one or more teeth, modern restorations like bridges and dentures allow for functional and beautiful smiles. At Frantz Dental, our team is committed to providing dental restoration options in Kingston, Pittston, and Scranton that prevent further damage to your smile, while restoring natural appearance and strength.
Dental bridges are a restoration option that allows for the replacement of one or more teeth. This restoration is supported by two abutments (crowns) that are placed on the teeth neighboring the gap in your smile. These crowns act as support for the prosthetic tooth, known as a pontic, which restores balance to your bite, while looking natural. Cosmetic bridges can be matched to the shade of your teeth, and are made using dental porcelain, providing support for everyday use.
Cosmetic Dental Bridges
For patients looking to replace a full arch or old dentures, we also provide whole and partial dentures. Dentures from our dental practice are made using natural looking and long-lasting materials, to ensure that you do not lose bite function. As with our dental bridges, partial dentures can be shade matched to neighboring teeth, keeping your smile uniform and attractive.
If extractions are needed before your dentures are provided, we take impressions of your jaw beforehand, allowing us to have a temporary denture available to you on the date of extraction; you don’t have to go without the appearance of a full smile. Once your jaw has healed, we provide your final denture. With detailed digital impressions used to fabricate dentures, patients are able to enjoy comfortable dentures fitted to their individual smiles.
Our team at Frantz Dental also offers implant-supported bridges and dentures for patients that qualify. Implant-supported restorations offer the same aesthetic appeal as our other cosmetic restoration options, though with the added advantages provided by dental implants. Dental implants allow for sturdier prosthetics, supported by titanium tooth roots that are implanted into the jaw.
The titanium posts are biocompatible, allowing them to fuse to the jawbone, and act the same way as the roots of natural teeth. Implants will not only add bite function, but prevent jaw absorption caused by the lack of stimulation that occurs when teeth are lost.
