To restore missing tooth, we recommend 3 best treatment options, some of them are:
Dental implants - We already know that dental implant involves the surgical replacement of cylindrical implant into the jawbone. The purpose is to fuse completely with the jawbone and improve the aesthetic appearance of teeth structure. If there is insufficient bone, then you require bone grafting technique to successfully place implant teeth.
Dental bridges - It is one of the technique to restore the missing tooth by connecting a bridge between adjacent teeth. The method of doing this is to fill a space between one or more teeth at an affordable price.
Partial Dentures - If you lost more than two teeth at a single area of the jawbone, then partial dentures is suitable for your missing teeth. It is the concept of metal framework and clasps that connect to your original teeth for natural looking. These dentures match the gum and tooth color according to the candidate to improve teeth appearance.
Dental crowns, also known as caps, cover the tooth to restore it to its normal shape and appearance. The caps are made of porcelain, porcelain fused with metal or metal. Unlike metal or porcelain fused to metal crowns, all –porcelain crowns provide the closest match to your natural teeth.Metal crowns; although cheaper do no provide the natural looking luster that porcelain crowns can provide. Porcelain crowns are more translucent, allowing more light to pass through giving you natural looking results. Depending on the materials used to make your dental crowns, the wear they get and the care they receive, they can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years.
Porcelain veneers are made of thin porcelain layers that essentially serve to replace the enamel of your teeth; the veneers adhere to the outer surface of your teeth.
