[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]When meeting new people, often your smile is the first or second characteristic they will notice. It is not unusual for people to feel extremely self-conscious about their smile, especially if they have noticeably missing teeth. Luckily, modern dentistry has created some excellent techniques to replace permanent teeth that have been lost due to injury or disease. Your restorative dentistry professional can help you decide which option is the best choice according to your dental needs.
Permanent dental implants are excellent for replacing one, or a few teeth. They are extremely long-lasting and completely natural looking. The treatment process involves having an implant placed into your jaw that will bond with your bone, creating a stable “root-like” structure. A realistic, custom crown will be attached to the implant, and function like a natural tooth.
Dental bridges are typically made of porcelain, and are permanently attached to healthy teeth, adjacent to your missing tooth, through the use of crowns. This type of bridge is quite sturdy, and long-lasting; however, at least two healthy teeth will need to be reshaped and crowned to hold it in place.
Whether you are missing a few teeth, or a whole mouth full, dentures can restore your natural-looking smile and boost your self-esteem. Dentures can be supported by permanent implants to ensure an extremely stable chewing surface, and reduce gum sensitivity. Conventional dentures are still common, although they may require more maintenance with the use of denture adhesives. Tooth loss tends to cause a “sunken in” appearance of your cheekbones and mouth, but dentures can actually combat this by providing support to the tissues of your face and restoring your natural look.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="106" img_size="full" alignment="center"][/vc_column][/vc_row]

If you hate your smile, find a dentist with the skills and training to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
