Every tooth in your mouth serves a purpose. If you’ve been in an accident or lost a tooth somehow, it’s important to replace the missing tooth, not only for aesthetics but because your remaining teeth will naturally shift out of alignment to fill in the gap. This could affect your bite, as well as your appearance.
Cosmetic and restorative dentistry in Las Vegas includes some state-of-the-art treatments that can fix the gap in your smile and restore your teeth to their full function.
There are several treatment options available if you’ve lost a tooth. Here’s how we can help.
Bridging the Gap – Tooth Replacement
Dr. Hadley and his team have a variety of procedures to fit your unique situation and budget. Here are some of the procedures we can discuss to replace your missing teeth:
- Bridges are custom-fitted prosthetic devices that bridge a gap where there are several missing teeth. These devices can either be attached or detachable,
- Crowns can help with everything from cracks, tooth decay, or a partially missing tooth. Just as the name implies, these custom-fitted dental helpers, are the crowns on top of the remaining tooth. They help pro
- Implants are an excellent option to help restore all the functions of your teeth, gums, and underlying bone structure. That’s because an implant works in a very similar way to your own natural teeth. The process includes attachment of a prosthetic device into the underlying bone. The implant helps secure the underlying bone structure and the cosmetically designed replacement tooth that fits onto the implant can restore your natural bite function.
These are just a few of the options you might have for a missing tooth. It’s important to consult with your Las Vegas cosmetic dentist who can help you weigh all your options.
Our process begins with your first appointment, where we will thoroughly review your dental and health history. We’ll also do a full screening of your mouth, with x-rays and computer scans to help understand the underlying bone structure and the health of the teeth that we may be connecting to. Based on your gum and bone health, we can design affordable options to fill the gap and undo any damage that has been caused by the missing tooth.
Today’s dentistry involves some of the most state-of-the-art procedures in healthcare. We can replace missing teeth with new ones that might even outlast your natural teeth. These replacements will look at least as good – if not better – than what you had before. Then we can revamp your smile by giving you more aligned, whiter teeth than you’ve every experienced. Your smile makeover can change your life in so many ways. What are you waiting for?
