If you’ve lost a tooth – due to decay, a sports injury, or other issue – you don’t need to worry about that ostentatious gap in your smile. Here at Art & Science Family Dentistry, we have many different options to help restore your smile. Let’s look at a few of them.
One of the most popular methods for tooth restoration, dental implants are simple, quick, and last as long as you’re willing to take care of them. They’re simple titanium screws, inserted into your gums, and capped with a crown that looks, feels, and functions exactly like a real tooth.
Dental bridges are another popular way to fill in the gaps in your smile. Using neighboring teeth, a fake tooth is inserted and attached to your other teeth via crowns. Bridges are a great option if you only need one tooth replaced, or don’t have the gum or jaw health necessary to receive an implant.
Coming in either a full set or a partial, dentures are another way to replace teeth. If you’re missing quite a few teeth, dentures may be the way to go. They do require a bit more maintenance than bridges or implants, but they’re effective and still very much in use today.
If you have a gap in your smile that needs fixing, please don’t wait any longer to restore your smile to its beautiful potential. Call us today at 651-739-1894 to schedule an appointment and see what replacement option Dr. Kinney and Musser recommends is best for you and your individual needs.
