Crowns and Bridges Improve Smile Function and Beauty

A missing tooth can detract from your smile and lead to long-term implications, including vulnerability to infections, increased risk of losing additional teeth and gum disease. Dental crowns and bridges in Richmond, VA are a tried and true method for restoring a full smile and protecting your long-term oral health. Dental crowns, also known as tooth caps protect and permanently restore a damaged, cracked or severely worn-down tooth or one that has undergone root canal therapy. A dental bridge consists of two or more crowns anchored to each side of the false tooth (pontic) that fills the empty space. At Advanced Dental Care, we offer crowns and bridges in Richmond, VA that seamlessly blend in alongside your existing teeth. For both crowns and bridges, teeth must be trimmed down to accommodate the crowns. Whether you need a crown or bridge, Dr. Han has extensive restorative dentistry skills delivering the highest quality crowns and bridges with great functional and aesthetic results!

Partial Dentures

A partial denture in Richmond, VA is a good choice if you still have a number of functional natural teeth. This removable prosthesis fills empty spaces and prevents remaining teeth from shifting. It’s made of a metal and pink plastic or resin framework that replicates gum tissue and plastic or resin false teeth. The base of the upper denture covers the roof of your mouth, while the base of the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate your tongue. Another option is an overdenture—a removable denture that fits over a small number of remaining natural teeth or implants. The crowns of natural teeth provide better aesthetics than metal clasps, but the downside is that natural teeth must be prepared to provide adequate stability and support for the partial denture.

Complete Dentures

If you lost most or all of your teeth, you’re likely an ideal candidate for a complete denture in Richmond, VA that replaces all teeth in your upper jaw, lower jaw or both. With traditional dentures, first we perform an oral exam and extract any unhealthy teeth. After your gums have healed, we take impressions and precise measurements of your mouth. If you qualify for immediate dentures, these can be inserted right after remaining teeth have been extracted. To make this possible, we take measurements and make models of your upper and lower arches during a preliminary visit. The downside of immediate dentures is that bone and gum tissue already start to shrink after extraction and during healing, so this type of appliance is more prone to needing a relining or replacement.

Implant Supported Dentures

Implant supported dentures are the middle ground between complete dentures and more expensive full-arch dental implants. Implant supported dentures are a great choice if you’re seeking a cost-effective tooth replacement that won’t slip, loosen or fall out. Implant supported dentures offer greater stability for eating and eliminate the need for adhesive. The implant posts assume the function of your missing natural tooth roots to help preserve bone and stimulate new growth. This type of denture can be customized as removable or fixed, depending in your personal preference.

A Smile Customized to You

At Advanced Dental Care, we deliver complete and partial dentures personalized to your oral health needs and smile goals. Our goal is to provide natural-looking dentures that don’t look like false teeth and fit perfectly. First, Dr. Han performs a complete oral examination and carefully extracts any unhealthy teeth. After your gums have completely healed, we take measurements of your mouth and take digital impressions. A wax bite is created to establish accurate vertical dimensions and proper jaw position. Then, you’ll receive a physical “try-in” to determine the color, shape and fit of your final dentures. We work with a state-of-the-art dental lab that creates your dentures. Once they come back, you’ll return to our office for a final fitting and Dr. Han can make small adjustments if needed. Although it can take a short period of time to get accustomed to wearing dentures, they provide many benefits.
