Replace Missing Teeth – Katy, TX
Keep Smiling and Live Life to Its Fullest!
Missing just one tooth may not seem like a big deal at first, but the complications that can arise are far more extensive than you’d think. Not only does chewing, and potentially smiling, become more difficult, but your neighboring teeth will quickly begin to shift as a way to compensate. This leaves your bite uneven, increases your risk for teeth grinding to develop, and only makes future tooth loss more likely. With Dr. Eva Boldridge creating your new restoration, your replacement tooth is sure to look, feel and function like your missing tooth! To schedule your tooth replacement consultation, contact our dental office today!

The standard for replacing teeth for many years now, dental bridges work to fill the gaps in your smile, especially if you’re missing consecutive teeth. Each bridge is made from tooth-colored dental ceramics and customized to fit on top of existing natural teeth. The bridge consists of three to four crowns fused together, with the crowns on either end hollowed out so natural teeth can anchor the restoration. The crowns which fill the gap are called pontics and effectively prevent neighboring teeth from shifting, keep the bite even, and make chewing, smiling and speaking easier.
Dentures are one of the oldest forms of tooth replacement available, but they are also one of the most comprehensive and affordable solutions for extensive tooth loss. Today’s dentures use gum-colored acrylics and porcelain crowns to mimic your existing oral structures. Full dentures replace an entire row of teeth at a time, while partials work to replace multiple teeth on opposing sides of the mouth. With proper maintenance at home and at our dental office, your denture will get many years of use.
Considered to be the most effective tooth replacement option in dentistry to date, dental implants work to replace the entire tooth’s structure. When a tooth is lost, the root is taken with it, allowing the jaw to weaken and shrink over time. Dental implants use a combination of titanium and porcelain to replace the root and crown portion simultaneously. With proper care, they can easily last a lifetime of use.
