For edentulous (without teeth) patients, removable dentures have been the go to tooth replacement option for centuries. The first president of the United States, George Washington, was famously rumored to have wooden dentures. While President Washington’s prosthetic smile was made up of numerous components, it seems unlikely wood was one of them. His denture did have gold, silver, human teeth, and even hippopotamus teeth. There are even more crude dentures found in bodies 100s and 1000s of years ago. Dentures are a tried and true tooth replacement method, and at Canatella Dental, we still make use of them every day, and innovations in the manufacture and materials make dentures a more comfortable option than ever. However, for a more natural looking and feeling smile, we recommend patients consider dental implant supported tooth replacement options.

Have age, genetics or some type of trauma left you with one or more severely damaged, weak or fractured teeth? If so, that marred smile is damaging more than your self-confidence. Damaged teeth cause serious problems, like deterioration of the jaw once the tooth is lost, increased risk for tooth decay and even gum disease. That means unless you solve the problem now, you’ll probably lose more teeth as time goes by, and we know you don’t want that. Your dentist wants you to know you have an option with zirconia dental crowns right here in New Orleans. Read on to learn more, and find out if they’re a good solution for replacing your damaged teeth.
