The spaces left by missing teeth should be addressed as soon as possible to eliminate the possibility of neighboring teeth shifting out of position and causing a host of additional issues.
Complete Dental Restorations
The gaps caused by missing teeth affect your outward appearance as well as your oral health. Teeth provide support for the muscles of the face. When teeth are missing, affected areas can look sunken. Wrinkles become more prominent and you look older. If you are missing teeth in the front, your lips look collapsed. This can add years to your appearance.
Appropriate dental restorations eliminate these issues. If only one tooth is missing, a dental implant may be the perfect solution. Implant restorations look and feel like natural teeth. They also keep the jawbone healthy. Dentures and partials are an economical alternative to bridgework and implants. They are used when a bridge or implant is not advisable.
Restore your beautiful smile and your ability to eat well with restorative dentistry. Filling in those empty spaces will renew your smile and return a sense of self-confidence. You will look and feel younger when your cheeks and lips are properly supported.
