Missing Teeth? Don’t Miss Out On A Beautiful Smile
Posted:Oct 19, 2018
If you have missing spaces in your smile due to dental caries, injury or any other reason, there is hope. If your existing teeth are stained, decayed, or broken, there is hope. If your teeth have always been misshapen, or crooked, there is hope. Cosmetic dentistry from Southern York Smile Care in Shrewsbury PA can fix all of those problems.
Regardless of the problem, it is usually preferable to preserve your natural teeth. If this is not feasible, and you have already lost teeth, we offer several ways for you to preserve (or regain) your ability to eat, drink, speak, laugh, and smile with confidence.
If you still have your teeth, but are not comfortable with them, porcelain veneers might be the best answer. They offer a relatively cost-effective approach to cosmetic adjustments – uneven color, size, or shape. These are very thin shells bonded to the front of the teeth. They upgrade unsightly, but structurally sound teeth.
A dental implant is a tooth replacement that consists of an artificial tooth and an artificial root (usually biocompatible titanium). The artificial root is actually inserted into the jaw bone where it integrates with the bone tissue. There are three parts to a dental implant: the artificial root, the connecting abutment, and the final crown or denture.
A dental implant is often the best restoration as it offers beauty, strength, natural function, and protection from bone recession that often occurs at the site of a missing tooth.
Dentures are tailor-made and can contain varying numbers of teeth. Sometimes the entire set of upper and lower teeth have to be pulled and a denture created. Modern dentistry offers a myriad of custom dental implant-denture combinations to restore missing teeth.
There is no need to miss out on a beautiful smile. Schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation with Southern York Smile Cares in Shrewsbury PA.
