Dental Restorations Transform Your Smile
- July 15, 2017
Have you perfected the closed-lipped smile, find yourself constantly covering your mouth, or feel like an imperfect grin hinders your social or even professional life? Whether you’ve lost one tooth or all of them (or something in between), we have dental restorations that will make you proud to show off your pearly whites.
Contemporary Dentistry & Implantology of Peabody, MA offers a full range of dentures and implants to restore damaged or missing teeth. Our doctors have decades of experience to call upon, and utilize state-of-the-art treatments and equipment. Once again, you can have teeth that are beautiful as well as fully functional. If you live in the North Shore area, call us immediately at(978) 278-1760.
Dentures Are Still a Great Option!
Modern dentures come in a variety of forms: fully removable, partially removable, temporary, and dentures that work in conjunction with dental implants.
Full Removable Dentures: exquisitely crafted and lifelike synthetic teeth that will take you from toothlessness to a complete dazzling smile. The teeth are fixed into a custom-made mold that’s the color of natural gums and that fits perfectly into your mouth with a little denture adhesive. Our full removable dentures are designed to be comfortable enough to wear all day, every day. They are a cinch to put in, take out, clean, and maintain.
Partial Removable Dentures: as the name suggests, these are partial dentures for people missing some, but not all, of their teeth. They are held in place with the use of clips, but otherwise act much like our full removable dentures.
Implant-Retained Dentures: these removable dentures are anchored into your mouth with non-removable dental implants and ball attachments. No worrying about slippage or them coming loose at an inopportune time!
Implant-Supported Dentures: similar to implant-retained, except a bar attachment is used in place of ball attachments.
Temporary Dentures: want a great smile while your permanent dentures are being manufactured? These placeholder dentures give you just that.

Fixed Crowns and Bridges
Conventional fixed crowns and bridges are a great option for repairing or replacing one or a few teeth.
Crown: A crown repairs teeth that have been cracked or otherwise damaged by disease or injury. The site is meticulously cleaned and the crown bonded into place. It will cover the surface of the tooth and protect the tissue inside. Crowns are designed to be long-lasting, functional, and to look great with your existing teeth.
Bridge: Bond three or more crowns together and you have a fixed dental bridge. A conventional bridge is held in place by the natural teeth around it. This proven technique is still popular, but a bit less durable than implant-supported bridges.
And What About Dental Implants?
Dental implants offer increased stability, comfort, and longevity over conventional restorations. They are maintained just like natural teeth — with regular brushing, flossing, and dentist visits — and allow you to chew and speak normally. Simply put, they are the next best thing to your real teeth.
Traditional Single Implant: in this simple surgical procedure, a prosthetic tooth root, usually made out of titanium, is inserted into the gum. Over the coming weeks, the implant actually merges with your natural bone. This forms a stable and enduring foundation for a denture or non-removable crown.
All-on-X® (i.e. Same Day Teeth®) Implants: this is an excellent option for people who need to replace a full arch or full mouth of teeth. The technique uses a set of four or six implants to support each arch.
Mini Dental Implants: like a traditional implant, the mini implant is a titanium post placed under the gum. Because of its small size, the procedure to insert the mini implant is quicker, less invasive, and requires less recovery time.
Bone grafting: if you’ve experienced significant bone loss due to periodontal disease or other factors, you may still be able to get a dental implant. A graft builds up the bone so that the implant can be inserted.
We can also place implants the very day of an extraction. That way, you avoid the hassle of multiple appointments and the embarrassment of walking around without teeth.
