Chapel Hill Partials Bridges Dentures Treatment

With Dental Bridges, Partials and Dentures

If you have a missing tooth – or missing teeth – you know the impact on your appearance, comfort, confidence, ability to eat and more.

With the many tooth replacement options available to you at the Chapel Hill dental practice of Dr. Saib, you don’t have to endure the embarrassment or discomfort of a missing tooth or teeth.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is an ideal option to replace one or several consecutive missing teeth. A permanent appliance, a dental bridge fills the space left by a missing tooth (or teeth). It is held in place by two crowns (abutments) that are placed on the healthy teeth adjacent to the space created by the missing teeth. In between the two crowns is a porcelain tooth (or teeth) that spans the empty area, replacing the missing tooth (or teeth), hence the term “bridge.” Once placed, the bridge is permanent. No special treatment is required. You just brush and floss like you would your natural teeth. Dental bridges can last a very long time if taken care of properly.

Full and Partial Dentures

If you have missing teeth, dentures are an affordable solution. Not only do they enhance your appearance and restore your confidence, they improve your ability to chew and speak, and also support the facial muscles.

A denture is a removable appliance that replaces missing teeth and adjacent tissues:

  • A partial denture replaces few to several teeth
  • Full dentures replace all the teeth

A partial denture also keeps the remaining healthy teeth from shifting positions in the mouth, helping to avoid TMJ and other bite-related pain and problems.
At your denture consultation, Dr. Saib will discuss your lifestyle, goals, expectations and priorities. We want to help you live life fully again!

  • I have visited more dental chairs than I want to recall. Never have I felt as comfortable at a dentist office as I do at Dr. Saib’s office. Everyone there makes you feel so comfortable. I wish I knew of Dr. Saib years ago. Dr. Saib was the first dentist that told me he was not going to judge me for the condition of my teeth. That says it all…Thank you Dr. Saib for bringing my smile back.

  • Dr. Saib and staff our always professional and friendly and make the bi-annual dentist trip as pleasant as one can be (you know, with people picking and poking in your mouth!). Thorough and considerate health care provider. Would recommend without reservation.

  • Dr. Saib and his staff are simply the best. And believe me, I know. I’ve had to have quite a bit of cosmetic dental work done in the past 20 years. His clam demeanor and obvious skills in color matching, pain management, and creating such a natural look are most appreciated. Dr. Saib listens to your concerns and addresses them. His staff is friendly, professional and welcoming. After all I have been through, I’m so grateful that I found Dr. Saib’s practice. I can smile confidently once again.

  • I love coming to the dentist. My kids love coming to the dentist! Everyone in the office is friendly, shows an interest in my family and me and makes us feel very welcome. Dr. Saib takes a conservative approach to dentistry, never trying to push any treatment, but definitely staying on top of our needs. Recommend highly!

  • My experience at Dr. Saib has been excellent. Dr. Saib and his entire staff are gracious and go out of their way to make me feel welcome and appreciated. I have many choices of local dentists but I choose to drive an hour each way to see Dr. Saib. That’s how much I think of his service.

  • Dr. Saib and all of his staff are wonderful! Everyone is very friendly and caring. I have been going to him as my general dentist for the past 10 years. He is a great dentist and very thorough! I recently decided to fix my teeth cosmetically. I had been unhappy with my teeth for a long time. Using veneers Dr. Saib made my teeth look natural and beautiful! He clearly loves doing cosmetic dentistry and does amazing work. It is very important to him that the patient is satisfied and that the teeth look great in the end. No strangers have noticed that my teeth have veneers on them, which is great and means they look very natural, but someone (who didn’t know I had gotten veneers) did comment when we were taking pictures at a party that I have a beautiful smile and look ready for bridal photos at my upcoming wedding. Thank you so much to everyone in the office! It was a great experience and I am very happy with my smile!
