Get Natural-Looking Teeth Replacements
You have heard the saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” It’s certainly true that it’s better to avoid cavities, broken teeth, and lost teeth. Regardless, these are issues that affect millions of people every year and a majority of Americans over the course of a lifetime.
When these problems do develop, you are much better off taking action early. By seeking restorative dental care early, you can prevent the problems from getting worse and you can recreate a healthy, natural-looking smile.
The materials used in modern restorative care are made to mimic the appearance of natural teeth. Our porcelain crowns reflect light in a way that is indistinguishable from real teeth. With a crown, your new tooth can look as good or better than the one it is replacing.
Bridges are made by fusing crowns together. That means you can get the same visual benefits. When you fill the gap created by lost teeth, your smile can be whole once again.
Regain Your Bite
A nice smile can certainly boost our self-confidence. It also can affect how other people perceive us, so we can make a good first impression.
Even so, it’s important to remember that teeth service an invaluable role in our overall health. The mouth is where we start breaking down the food that we eat. A strong bite allows us to break down that food well, making it easier to get the nutritional benefits from our meals.
Modern crowns and bridges can allow you to eat practically anything that you would like. If you are missing teeth, we even have a not-so-secret weapon to revive your biting power.
Dental implants function as artificial roots for replacement teeth. Implants are placed in your jaw, taking the place of the roots that we once there. If you are missing a single tooth, an implant can support your crown to create a complete tooth replacement. If you are missing multiple teeth, a few implants can be used to secure a dental bridge.
By getting implants, you can feel confident that your replacement teeth will remain stable. This also allows you to stimulate your jawbone, which can prevent the kind of bone loss that can lead to additional lost teeth over time.
