Your Options for Missing Teeth 

Missing teeth can occur for a number of reasons. While it can be genetic for some, others experience missing teeth due to accidents. Playing sports or an automobile accident is usually the most common reason for missing teeth. Others lose teeth due to decay or other issues. It does not matter if you are missing one tooth or several; you have options for restoring missing teeth and filling in those unwanted spaces. These options range in longevity and price. It is important to speak with your dentist about what your best option is for replacing missing teeth. Here are some options to consider when looking for restorative dentistry:

Veneers

One of the most common options for replacing missing teeth is using veneers. Chances are you have seen these a lot and never knew they were veneers. Your favorite celebrity on television who has that perfect, white smile often has this smile due to wearing veneers. A lot of people will invest in the veneers because it gives them straighter, whiter teeth. Additionally, this is a great option for those who have missing teeth for one reason or another. The veneers can cover the entire set of teeth, just a few teeth, or one tooth only.

Veneers are easy to put in place and offer a permanent replacement when you are missing teeth. One of the greatest benefits behind veneers is that no one even knows they are in there. Because they mimic natural looking teeth, no one has to know you even have them making them easy to disguise.

Crowns

If you are looking for something a little cheaper than veneers, then you may want to consider crowns. The function of these is a little different as they cover a broken or cracked tooth. If you have a damaged tooth that you need to repair, the crown sits on top of the tooth and functions as a cap. This restores the size, shape, and color of the tooth so that you cannot tell the tooth is damaged. Crowns can be made out of different types of materials, including ceramic, metal, or porcelain. Again, the crown is made to look like a natural tooth, so no one ever knows you have anything foreign in your mouth.

Bridges

Another common option is a bridge. Many dentists prefer this method of restoring missing teeth because it is inexpensive and easy to install. A bridge is typically a temporary option when someone is missing a tooth or several. The bridge works by attaching to other stronger teeth and holding the false tooth in place to help enclose the gap. The false teeth are held in place with caps on both sides of the two joining teeth. This helps to form a secure bond between the false tooth and other teeth so that it remains in place while eating and doing other things.
