If you have lost or missing teeth you may wish to consider a dental implant from Summit Dental Centers. Summit Dental is a full service dental practice specializing in your dental needs. Whether your missing tooth is the result of periodontitis, tooth decay or an injury, Summit Dental can help restore your smile with a beautiful new dental implant that looks and functions just like a real tooth.
Significantly stronger than bridges or dentures, a dental implant offers a single and permanent solution to a lost tooth. The implant is integrated into your jaw with a small titanium screw and over the course of several months naturally bonds with your mouth. This procedure is relatively simple and is effective in almost all cases, so there’s no need to put off restoring that great smile.
As with all our dental services, you’ll be treated with the nurturing care and professionalism that embodies Summit Dental. We’ll make sure that you’re kept comfortable and informed throughout the implant process and will always be available to address any questions or concerns.

Depending on the type of treatment you have received for your dental problem, it might be necessary to:
- Have your tooth restored to its original size and shape
- Supply additional physical support for the treated tooth
- Get a complete “makeover” on the affected tooth
For cases like these, a crown is the most logical option.
While inlays and outlays cover the chewing surface of the tooth and fillings fill in the empty interior space of the tooth, crowns completely cover every visible part of the tooth – which is why they are sometimes referred to as “caps.” A part of your tooth remains but is essentially “rebuilt” to resemble the tooth at its exterior best.
While porcelain crowns certainly can improve the look of a tooth or multiple teeth, it is recommended only in conjunction with prior repair of the tooth – not simply for cosmetic purposes.
In dentistry, crown and bridge refers to the restoration of natural teeth that have been damaged, decayed or lost. This is otherwise known as restorative dentistry. Once we have examined your teeth and has evaluated your dental and medical history, we will be ready to provide a diagnosis and treatment options.
In instances where you need to have your tooth restored to its original size and shape, supply additional physical support for the treated tooth or get a complete “makeover” on the affected tooth, a crown would be your best option.
Dental bridges, on the other hand, are used to replace missing a missing tooth.

Whether from disease, malnutrition or genetic disorders, sometimes it is necessary for us to extract all of a patient’s lower or upper teeth. While this can be devastating, dentures can provide a second chance at a beautiful smile.
Having complete dentures help with chewing as well as support one’s facial structure and improve speech. With immediate dentures, you can have a full set of teeth while you are waiting for your gums to heal and your bone to realign after having teeth removed. This can take up to six months, so immediate dentures are a great alternative during that time.
Sometimes, complete dentures are not necessary. Partial dentures can replace a string of missing teeth, and are secured to your remaining teeth with clasps. No matter which kind of dentures you choose, you can be assured to receive natural-looking dentures that match your facial structure and desired tooth color.
