If you have had years of dental problems or are embarrassed by your teeth, our very comfortable and friendly team at Marcos Ortega DDS can help you find the restoration procedure right for you. You could be a candidate for implant-supported dentures or dental implants.
Our Marcos Ortega DDS dental lab creates restorations that look just like natural teeth: attractive, healthy teeth.
If you still have some healthy, natural teeth, you can benefit from implant-supported dentures without having your healthy teeth extracted.
Partial dentures fill in the gaps, replacing missing teeth to complete a smile. Partial dentures can prevent natural teeth from moving. Many San Diego dental practices can complete these procedures in one day.
Many dental insurance providers cover most or all of the cost of these restorations. Call us at Marcos Ortega DDS and we can help you find out if your dental insurance covers implant supported dentures.
Another alternative for San Diego people with missing teeth is to receive dental implants. A dental implant is a permanent tooth restoration that is anchored into the jawbone, actually replacing both the root and crown of the tooth. Dental implants have many advantages, such as preventing jaw bone recession which can occur when natural teeth are removed. However, not all San Diego cosmetic dentistry patients are good candidates for implants. Call Marcos Ortega DDS at 619-295-4545 for a dental implant consultation.
Dental implants can also be used to anchor a removable denture. The denture is ‘snapped on’ or attached to the implants for no-slip confidence.
The combination denture/implant smile restoration solution is being used successfully by many San Diego dentists. It is usually more affordable than dental implant replacements for several natural teeth.
Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health, improving your ability to eat and speak. If you are embarrassed to smile or laugh, it’s time to bring back your beautiful smile!
