Tooth Replacement Options

Dr. Benson and Dr. Dunham offer a full range of tooth replacement options to restore one or more missing teeth. During your consultation, Dr. Benson or Dr. Dunham will thoroughly examine your teeth to determine whether a dental implant, dentures, or dental bridge will give you the most natural looking, functional results.

  • Dental Implant: Receiving a dental implant is usually requires multiple visits to our Greeley, CO dental office. Dental implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Most dentists suggest dental implants as the ideal tooth replacement solution because of their high patient success rate and their ability to resemble your natural teeth. Dental implants usually take 3-6 months to fully integrate into the jawbone. Once the dental implant fuses, Dr. Benson or Dr. Dunham can attach a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture as your final restoration.
  • Dental Bridge: With the use of E4D  technology, Dr. Benson, and Dr. Dunham can create a customized dental bridge that is right for you. A dental bridge can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Traditionally, a dental bridge uses two dental crowns to support a prosthetic tooth and relies on your existing teeth for support. For a more durable solution, a dental bridge can be fixed into place using dental implants.
  • Dentures: Dentures can be used to replace the bottom, top, or both rows of teeth. At Integrated Dental Arts, we take the time to create dentures that fit comfortably and properly in the mouth. Dentures often require adhesive to stay in place, but with the dental implants, also known as “all-on-four,” patients can have their dentures fixed into place.
