A dental implant takes the place of a missing tooth by providing a porcelain, lifelike replacement. Dental implants are small, titanium "posts" that are inserted directly into the bone beneath your gums. The implant post then serves as an anchor for a porcelain crown. The resulting restoration looks and feels like a natural tooth, and you will care for it in much the same way as a natural tooth ― with brushing and flossing. You can replace one tooth or a whole set of teeth with dental implants! We can assist you in planning your implant placement and provide the porcelain crowns that complete your treatment and restore your smile and function.
Implant-supported dentures are a more stable fitting solution for those who need dentures. Unlike traditional dentures that can sometimes shift and move in your mouth, a set of implant-supported dentures stays in place. Invest in a more normal, natural smile and never worry about an embarrassing smile moment again!
When you are missing teeth, your appearance can change dramatically due to the shrinking of the supportive structure of your face and jaw. Dentures allow you to live a more normal life and to keep the muscles and bones around your jaw active. Preserve your ability to speak and to eat normally with lifelike dentures from Taylor Dental.
When you are missing several teeth in a row, due to injury or disease, a porcelain bridge or other restoration may not be an option. A partial denture can restore function to that part of your mouth, allowing you to speak and chew normally without discomfort or embarrassment. Lifelike partial dentures are just one of the many restorations available at Taylor Dental.
Just a single missing tooth ― even a back tooth ― can dramatically alter your appearance and make you look unhealthy. Porcelain bridges "bridge the gap" in your smile by using the teeth on either side of the gap as the supportive structure for a cosmetic, porcelain tooth. After a little preparation, the neighboring teeth are fitted with lifelike porcelain crowns. Between these crowns, the porcelain tooth is cemented permanently into place, giving you a complete, natural-looking smile!
Porcelain crowns fit over your natural tooth structure to correct discolored, misshapen, or even broken teeth. At Taylor Dental, smiles are designed using porcelain crowns that are expertly shaped and shaded to accentuate your overall appearance. After tooth preparation, the crowns are cemented into place. They will feel just like your natural teeth, will look amazing, and will last for many years.
A porcelain inlay or onlay is a solution for a broken tooth or a tooth that is missing too much natural structure to hold a filling. An inlay or onlay is expertly shaped and shaded by your dentist at Taylor Dental to match your natural teeth. It protects your remaining tooth structure and restores function to that area of your mouth.
If you suffer from jaw pain, you may already be aware that you have a problem with your temporomandibular joint. But, did you know that headaches, neck aches, and even earaches can also be signs of jaw joint problems? Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) affects many people of all ages. Taylor Dental can provide you with treatment and therapy to reduce or to even eliminate your pain and discomfort.
