If you are missing one or more of your teeth, you may worry that your quality of life will be permanently affected. But that certainly isn’t the case at Seastone Dental!

We offer multiple restorative options at Seastone Dental, your dentist in Summerville, SC. Take a look at some of our offerings below!

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a cap designed to cover the visible portion of a tooth that has suffered extensive damage and/or decay. Made from natural-looking materials like porcelain and ceramic, crowns can match the shade of your existing teeth to blend in seamlessly with your smile. Plus, they can last for many years if properly cared for.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are a great option if you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth in a row. A dental bridge closes the gap between natural teeth. Bridges consist of an artificial tooth sandwiched between two dental crowns fitted over your natural teeth. A bridge can also be anchored by dental implants.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are permanent replacement teeth that consist of crowns anchored by titanium rods that are surgically implanted into your jawbone. This procedure will prevent bone degeneration because your jawbone is still stimulated by chewing forces through the replacement tooth root. Plus, implants closely resemble the look and feel of natural teeth because of their stability.

Full or Partial Dentures

Dentures consist of a gum-like acrylic base with false teeth on top. Partial dentures attach to your remaining teeth with metal clips, while removable full dentures require a dental adhesive. These must be removed for cleaning every night. In contrast, implant-supported dentures also replace all the teeth in an arch but they can either be fixed on the implants or snapped into place.
