Which Treatments Can Replace Damaged or Missing Teeth?

If you are looking to improve your smile due to tooth loss or decay, you may be interested in figuring out how to solve this problem. Here, we will explain which treatments can replace damaged or missing teeth.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns cover individual teeth in order to improve the tooth by shaping it, strengthening it, or changing its size. Dental crowns are often used when the tooth that needs to be restored is by itself in the mouth and therefore doesn’t need a large apparatus to enhance it. Crowns are made of a number of different materials including ceramic and porcelain, which are used to make crowns for teeth that are located in the front of the mouth because they can match the color of natural teeth, and gold and metal alloys, which are used for teeth in the back because they are strong materials.

Dental implants

Dental implants are essentially replacement tooth roots that serve as the base for replacement teeth. These metal frames or posts are surgically placed in your jawbone to create a strong base. Then false teeth are placed upon the dental implant.

Dental bridges

If you have one or more missing teeth that are located next to each other, a dental bridge may be the best treatment option for you. Dental bridges are also called removable dentures and are made by creating a crown for the teeth on either side of the space where the missing teeth are. Then, false replacement teeth will be put between the crowns and the entire string of false teeth and crowns will be strung together.

Veneers

Veneers are a great option for damaged teeth because they are used to improve the appearance of your teeth, whether that means making them whiter or changing their shape or size. They can also improve the appearance of gapped teeth, misaligned teeth, chipped or broken teeth, or worn down teeth.

Dentures

Dentures are a removable dental appliances that replace many missing teeth that were lost often due to injury, tooth decay, or gum disease. Dentures not only improve your smile by replacing missing teeth with natural looking false teeth, but also improve your overall appearance because when you lose your teeth, your facial muscles can sag and therefore make you appear older.

Friendly staff, always take the time to discuss how you are doing, and what needs to be done. I've been a patient for 10+ years, and even though I moved out of town, I always come back for my dental needs.
