Missing, chipped, damaged, and discolored teeth affect millions of Americans. Professional treatment is often needed to replace or repair teeth depending on patient need.
Missing teeth can become more of a hassle than just a simple aesthetic annoyance. If left untreated, missing teeth can cause an array of problems, such as:
- Bone loss
- Gum disease
- Difficulty biting and chewing
- Crooked teeth
- Shifting teeth
- Bite irregularities
- Speech issues
Often, patients want their chipped, damaged, and discolored teeth to be worked on for aesthetic reasons. However, damaged and discolored teeth may be more prone to tooth decay and cavities, especially if the problem is caused by poor dental hygiene. Teeth may also need to be covered and enhanced as a safeguard against infection and other oral health problems.
Dr. Aubrey Myers & Associates make it their priority to provide safe and comfortable care to their patients. There are multiple treatments that can restore the form and function of teeth. Some examples include:
Dental crowns can be used to cover and protect implants or discolored and damaged teeth. Crowns offer a permanent restoration to improve the appearance and function of a tooth or teeth. Patients often find that dental crowns support damaged teeth while changing teeth color and shape.
Dental bridges are used to replace several consecutive missing teeth. This solution closes the gap left by missing teeth and supports dental crowns and implants. Made of high-quality ceramic, dental bridges mimic natural teeth through their appearance and performance.
Dentures are a great option for patients who are missing the upper, lower, or both arches of their teeth. Traditional dentures are removable, but implant secured dentures can offer a more permanent solution. Implant dentures utilize small titanium posts which attach to the jaw bone. The implants provide more support to the jaw bone and the denture for long-lasting and natural-looking results.
