3 Great Options for Tooth Replacement in Metro Detroit

Keeping teeth healthy is our main goal at DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. We also know, though, that our patients in Livonia and in Metro Detroit sometimes need dental repair and even replacement of missing teeth. Every tooth plays an important role in speaking, chewing, and in maintaining proper alignment of other teeth. Our experienced professional staff works to ensure that our metro Detroit patients continue to enjoy the self confidence of dental health.

Dr. Jim DeCapite has the skills and experience to help our patients regain that healthy, happy smile with these three great options for tooth replacement and repair:

  • Bridges: A bridge is a device used to replace missing teeth that attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. Bridges are either permanently attached (fixed bridges), or they can be removable. Fixed bridges are a great way to restore dental health and appearance.
  • Dental implants: Implants start with tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. Replacement teeth are then made over the posts or attachments. Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
  • Crowns: Crowns are a reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. A crown can replace a missing tooth and can offer support to misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth. At DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we use this technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, to offer a complete smile and a functional bite.

The professional dental staff wants our patients in Livonia and the Motor City to enjoy the confidence of well-aligned teeth and a healthy smile. We invite those who have missing or broken teeth to visit us to learn about the most appropriate solutions for tooth replacement and repair.

Our offices are located in Livonia, near the intersection of Schoolcraft and Merriman Roads. We accept new patients and, of course, all emergencies. Contact us today to set an appointment!
