Losing a tooth can potentially stop you from enjoying your favorite foods, and the teeth next to the gap may end up shifting out of place, causing your entire smile to become misaligned.

Whether you’ve lost one tooth or many teeth, we’ll soon have you grinning with confidence again when we replace missing teeth in Dallas, TX!
If you only have one tooth that needs to be replaced, you can get a dental bridge. The teeth on either side of the space are fitted with crowns, and the prosthetic tooth placed between them will fill in the gap so that you can speak and chew normally again. Bridges are also a good option if you need to replace several teeth in a row; the crowns can typically support one to four new teeth between them at a time.
A dental bridge might not be suitable if you’ve lost teeth in different areas throughout the mouth or are missing an entire row. You can get partial dentures that can replace multiple teeth throughout the mouth, but in the most extensive cases of tooth loss, full dentures may be needed to replace the whole arch. While partial dentures are held in place with metal attachments, full dentures only need natural suction to keep themselves in place.
