The number of teeth that can be replaced depends on the number and condition of the adjacent teeth.
A bridge is usually made out of porcelain or a combination of porcelain with a precious metal alloy framework for increased strength.
Implants are the closest thing available to having your own teeth.
Dental implants can be an effective method to replace one tooth, or several teeth. Simply put, an implant is an artificial device replacing the tooth's root. Each implant consists of a titanium anchor that is inserted into the jawbone to which a crown or bridge is attached. An implant can replace a partial denture or secure a fixed denture.

Dentures are a removable option for the replacement of one, a few or all teeth.
Partial dentures are retained by clasps to the remaining teeth. They may be made of acrylic or have a metal framework for strength, precision fit and comfort.
When all of the teeth have been lost then full dentures can restore your confidence and your ability to chew and eat. Full dentures are never as secure as your own teeth and may require additional retention to be provided by implants.
