Options for Restoring a Missing Tooth

Here at Aten & Garofalo Dentistry in Charlotte, North Carolina, can restore a missing tooth and make you a smile that can you be proud of. We take pride in our work and make you feel like you are part of the family. Today we are going to be discussing on ways we can restore your missing tooth. Restoring a missing tooth can sometimes be easy, depending on how many missing teeth you have or what you got going on. Here are some ways that we can restore your missing teeth.

Ways of Restoring a Missing Tooth

  • We can use porcelain veneers to replace your cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth. However, they are really not the best way to replace your missing tooth. It is an option that we can use on your other teeth if they are broken or chipped.
  • There is also dental bonding. Dental bonding is the easiest and least expensive way to restore your cracked or chipped tooth. It can also fix little imperfections in your teeth that you like to have corrected. However, you cannot use it to restore a missing tooth.
  • We can also use dental implants to restore your missing tooth. Dental implants have titanium screws that attach to your jaw bone. That way your artificial tooth can act just like your real tooth.
  • And last but not least we can use a complete or partial denture. Full and partials are the most commonly used procedures to replace your missing teeth. What is a partial denture? It is a removable denture that hooks on to your existing natural teeth. The complete denture will restore all of your missing teeth that may have been damaged due to gum disease, trauma, or neglect. In some cases, partial dentures are the one of the best options to replace your missing teeth and restore your smile.

Dental Implants Are a Great Dental Restoration Option

If your missing some of your teeth or all of your teeth, then dental implants may be right for you. This dental restoration option can give you back your smile and will boost your confidence. Here at Aten & Garofalo Dentistry in Charlotte, North Carolina we are going to discuss why dental implants are a great dental restoration option.

Why Dental Implants is a Great Dental Restoration Option

When you are missing teeth, your gums will begin to recede, and you will start to lose bone structure in that area of your missing teeth. That’s because your bone and gum tissue will not have a root structure to support it. Also, the gaps where you missing teeth are can make your remaining teeth shift out of their position, causing alignment issues.

Dental implants are one of the best dental restoration options to consider the reason why is because they will be able to stop the bone loss and stop your gums from receding. Dental implants will be surgically placed into your bone and gum tissue. They will act as your natural tooth and they will restore your bite strength and functionality. Dental implants can also support any crowns, if you have dental bridges, or dentures.

To get dental implants you do need to have healthy gums and bones. The procedure will have two stages. We will install the root implant and then put a replacement crown on it. The duration of the procedure varies. If you think that implants will be the right dental restoration option for you give us a call.
