Crowns and Bridges
Both crowns and most bridges are fixed prosthetic devices. Unlike removable devices such as dentures, which you can take out and clean daily, crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants, and can only be removed by Scottsdale Family Dental, Scottsdale, AZ.
With the many advances in dental care, Dr. Chris Yoon at Scottsdale Family Dental can now ensure that we can repair and restore your teeth in the most natural way possible. Dr. Yoon can match your repair to the color of the surrounding teeth making it almost invisible to everyone but you.
For many people, dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural. Surgically placed below the gums over a series of appointments, implants fuse to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges or a denture.
Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.
Partial and Full Dentures
Dentures are removable dental appliances that replace missing teeth. Unlike dental implants and dental bridges, which are more or less permanently affixed to the bone, dentures are prosthetic teeth attached to a supporting structure. Dentures can be removed at night, for cleaning, or whenever desired.
