Dental Implants, Dentures, and Dental Bridges

To replace missing teeth, our possible solutions include:

  • Dental implants. Because Dr. Tieken embeds dental implants directly into your jawbone, they provide a stable foundation for dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures. Implants can replace everything from a single tooth to an entire mouthful of teeth.
  • Dentures. We can replace a whole mouthful of missing teeth or just a few teeth with traditional dentures. To give dentures the full functionality of your natural teeth, we can securely attach them to dental implants.
  • Dental bridges. We can replace a single missing tooth or a few teeth with a dental bridge. We anchor the bridge to adjacent teeth using dental crowns.

Fixing Breaks, Chips, and Other Damage

We also offer multiple choices for repairing broken, chipped, or cracked teeth. Depending on the severity of the damage, we can use:

  • Dental crowns. Because they cover your entire tooth, dental crowns are great for fixing broken or severely cracked teeth. A crown can also be used with a dental implant to replace a missing tooth.
  • Dental veneers. Veneers, which cover the front surface of your teeth, are useful for fortifying teeth weakened by minor cracks or chips.
  • Inlays/onlays. Inlays and onlays are a cross between a tooth filling and a dental crown. We use them to repair cavities that are too large for conventional fillings.

Tired of your missing and damaged teeth? Ready to get back full chewing functionality so you can enjoy your favorite foods? Call Tieken Smiles Dentistry at 281-942-6615. Or use our online form to schedule an appointment at our League City, TX dentist office.
