Rebuild and strengthen your smile
A single missing tooth can take away from the beauty and function of your smile. Fortunately, there are options available to replace a missing tooth so you never have to hide your smile again. Dr. Patrick Moriarty performs dental implants and bridges at his practice, convenient and affordable procedures that can rebuild and strengthen your smile.
Benefits of a dental bridge
A dental bridge is designed to fill any gaps between two healthy teeth. Whether you lost a tooth due to gum disease or in an accident, we need to fill that gap or you may develop problems with your bite. If the missing tooth is in the front of the mouth, you may feel self-conscious about your smile — this is where a bridge can help. We have a CEREC machine at our practice to create custom crowns for bridge work. We can fabricate the crown right in our office in one visit so you do not need to worry about temporaries or wait several weeks to achieve the full result.
Benefits of a dental implant
While a bridge can fill the gap and improve the aesthetics of your smile, you will experience some bone loss in the area where the tooth is missing. Dental implants eliminate the risk of bone loss since they are affixed directly in the jaw bone. The implants work just like your regular teeth and are designed to look very natural. We offer mini dental implants at our practice, an option for patients who have already experienced some bone loss but want a permanent, stable solution for replacing missing teeth.
Undergoing smile restoration procedures
Dr. Moriarty offers several smile restoration solutions at his practice and can determine which procedure will be most appropriate for you. He offers sedation dentistry to help with any anxiety and fear so you can get through your treatment without stress. You can trust Dr. Moriarty with your tooth replacement procedure since he has placed over 500 implants over his career and been in practice for 38 years.
