It can be easy to take your teeth for granted, but when one or more is missing, you quickly realize how vital they are to your everyday life.
The good news is that if you’re missing one or more teeth, Brident provides several tooth replacement options including crowns and bridges, dental implants, and removable dentures. Which tooth replacement option is best for you? It depends on your individual situation.
If you have a piece of tooth that still has healthy roots but has broken off due to age, an accident, a weak filling, or any other reason, Brident may be able to fix it with a dental crown. Also called a tooth cap, a dental crown is simply a custom-made cap that fits over your broken tooth to restore its natural appearance and protect it from further damage.

If you’re completely missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge is a tooth replacement option to consider. A dental bridge involves placing dental crowns on both sides of your missing tooth and then inserting a replacement tooth between them. The replacement tooth is then cemented to the dental crowns on either side to create a strong and permanent connection (or “bridge”).

Dental implants are tiny screw-like posts that are attached to your jawbone and used to secure an artificial tooth. They’re typically made of strong and lightweight titanium or titanium alloys. Over time, dental implants actually become fused to your bone, which makes them exceptionally sturdy and durable.

Dentures are one of the most common, popular and affordable options for replacing some or all of your teeth. Also known as false teeth, a denture is a prosthetic device constructed to replace missing teeth. Dentures can also be removed from your mouth.
