Replacing Missing Teeth

Dentures in Cary NC


Dentures are customized replacements for missing teeth. Dentures can be taken out and put back into your mouth. ¬†Dentures will take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as natural teeth, today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.

There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Dr. Privette will help you choose the type of denture that’s best for you based on your need and the cost involved.

Dental Bridge

A Dental Bridge may be recommended if you’re missing one or more teeth. Gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. The imbalance caused by missing teeth can also lead to gum disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.

Dental Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space. These teeth, serve as anchors for the bridge. You have a choice of materials for your bridge. Dr. Privette   can help you decide which to use, based on the location of the missing tooth (or teeth), its function, aesthetic considerations and cost. Porcelain or ceramic bridges can be matched to the color of your natural teeth.

Contact the Cary office of Dr. Carlos Privette and Associates to inquire about dentures and bridges.
