Dentist in Philadelphia, PA explains how a denture can repair the smile

Dr. David Spilkia Can Repair the Smile with Dentures

Tooth loss can leave a smile in a lackluster state. In addition, gaps in the smile can be embarrassing. Fortunately, we offer a treatment that can repair the smile and self-esteem. Denture treatment is one of several methods for replacing missing teeth. We provide this treatment at David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Philadelphia, PA.

Denture treatment is tailored to meet the unique needs and lifestyles of patients. We offer a wide selection of tooth colors, shapes, and sizes to ensure the ideal looking artificial teeth (pontics). We understand tooth loss can affect confidence and self-esteem, so we are attentive to every detail of new smiles.

The first step toward the smile of your dreams is a consultation appointment with Dr. Spilkia. He will carefully review your medical history and examine the health of your mouth, teeth, and gums. He will want to know your goals so that he can customize your perfect smile. X-rays may be taken to examine your soft tissues and jawbone. Impressions are made of your dental arches and are used by laboratory technicians to customize your dentures.

We can provide partial and full dentures depending on the extent of tooth loss. Partial dentures include one or more artificial teeth to restore the smile. Full dentures can be used to replace an entire arch of teeth. Our dentures can be natural looking so there is a high likelihood nobody will notice you sought treatment. Tooth loss can occur due a blow to the face. Therefore, it is important to know your options if an emergency strikes.

Other treatments for tooth loss include dental bridges and dental implants. For dental bridge treatment, an appliance containing an artificial tooth and porcelain dental crowns is placed to restore the smile. Dental implant treatment involves an oral surgery in which titanium rods are placed into the jawbone. After the jawbone has healed, dental crowns are placed onto the implants.

To explore a treatment for tooth loss, schedule your appointment with Dr. Spilkia by calling (267) 463-2777 today. He can restore health, beauty, and function to your smile with the ideal treatment for you.

Absolutely wonderful! My entire family used to hate going to the dentist, until we came here. Even my toddlers love going to the dentist now! The staff are polite, friendly, and caring. The receptionists are amazing, and Dr. Spilkia is the best dentist I've ever met.
