Spring Mountain Dental facilitates the treatment of missing or damaged teeth through the use of crowns, bridges, and removable or partial dentures. Crowns are a custom-made covering that fit over a severely broken down tooth to correct its appearance and function. Gaps where a missing tooth or teeth once resided are corrected by a bridge that fills in that gap. There are several types of dental bridges, depending upon how they are fabricated and the nature of how they anchor to the adjacent teeth.
Dentures (or false teeth) are designed to replace missing teeth. Full dentures are used when a patient has lost all their teeth in a single arch (upper or lower). Partial dentures are used when a patient has lost some of their teeth in a particular arch. Dentures and partials can be secured in position through the use of implants coupled with snap-on attachments within the denture or partial denture body. Spring Mountain Dental has a full service dental lab on-site that offers same day denture and partial denture repairs.
