What are my options to replace a missing tooth?
We treat missing teeth with several different options, but the most popular options include dental implants, crowns, bridges, and full or partial dentures.
Each treatment carries different benefits—and costs vary, as well. Our dentists will explain which options best fit your unique circumstances and give you some idea what to expect in terms of longevity after the procedure is complete.
Implants generally offer the longest lasting results and look natural when used with a porcelain crown. Bridges and crowns without an implant are affordable options that also look quite natural. Both are considered permanent since they are cemented in place, whereas dentures are removable. Our dentists can discuss all these options to help you make a wise choice.
We will also discuss pricing with each treatment option. That way you can make the right financial decision and decide whether to budget for the procedure. We are happy to send a pre-treatment authorization to your insurance company; that way you have some idea what portion of cost your insurance will likely cover. Keep in mind, pre-treatment authorizations are estimates only, a tool that helps people decide which procedure is best for their budget. The final amount contributed by your insurance company may vary.
