If you are missing a tooth and are less than confident about your smile, you are not alone. Many people experience tooth loss, whether from tooth decay, gum disease, injury, smoking, or age. At Vela Dental Centers Crosstown, our dentists, Drs. Vela and Arredondo and our dedicated team are pleased to offer restorative dentistry options for our patients with missing teeth>

Whether you are missing one tooth or several, we offer restorative dental options to suit your needs. We can restore your confident smile with an implant, dental bridge, crown, or dentures–both complete and partials.

Dental Implants: These are the most natural-looking replacements for lost teeth. They are stable, last longer than other options, and keep the jawbone under the missing tooth stable so that it doesn’t deteriorate, maintaining facial structure.

Dental Bridge: Tooth-supported bridges are designed to repair damaged teeth as they are ground to allow adding a bridge across the teeth that will then hold the crown.

Partial Dentures: A partial denture is used if you are missing multiple teeth but have remaining natural teeth. A partial denture often includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to the natural teeth for a secure fit.

Complete Denture: A complete denture is used to replace all of the teeth in a full dental arch. We may suggest a complete denture to replace all of the teeth in both arches or just one, depending on your individual needs. Our dentists may suggest using a denture adhesive for improved stability.

Drs. Vela and Arredondo at Vela Dental Centers Crosstown are here to help our patients in Corpus Christi, Texas and the surrounding areas renew their healthy smiles with our natural looking replacements.
