Have you lost teeth? It’s a lot different than when you lost your baby teeth. Unfortunately, adult teeth don’t grow back. (And a gap-toothed smile doesn’t look as cute as it did when you were in kindergarten.) At Kevin Bass DMD Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, your premier Lansdale, PA area dentist office, we can help your missing tooth problem.
It’s time to visit with Dr. Kevin Bass at Kevin Bass DMD Cosmetic and Family Dentistry if you’re missing teeth or if they’re stained, decayed, or chipped.
When it comes to the prospect of losing your adult teeth, the preference is always to preserve your natural teeth. If this is not possible, we offer several ways to maintain your ability to eat, drink, speak, laugh, and smile in selfies.
If you still have your teeth, but are not satisfied with them, veneers might be your solution. Stunning porcelain veneers offer a reasonably-priced approach to cosmetic adjustments—uneven color, size, or shape. They are very thin shells bonded to the front of the teeth. They upgrade unsightly, but structurally sound teeth.
A dental bridge is used where a tooth is missing. It “bridges” a gap between teeth. It is a restoration with a false tooth (or teeth) attached to the surrounding teeth. Dental bridges have been used with success for generations of people who have lost teeth.
A dental implant is a more extensive replacement for a missing tooth. An implant consists of an artificial tooth PLUS an artificial root (usually biocompatible titanium). With local anesthesia, the artificial root is actually inserted into the jaw bone where it integrates with the bone tissue. An implant is often the ideal restoration as it offers beauty, strength, natural function, and protection from bone recession that often occurs at the site of a missing tooth.
Most people have heard of dentures: a plate holding artificial teeth that can be removed by the wearer. These are custom-made and can contain varying numbers of teeth. Modern dentistry offers many dental implant-denture combinations to restore missing teeth.
Don’t worry about losing your grip on the adult teeth you’ve been enjoying all these years. We have experience and training in many vital services to meet your dental needs including dental implants, cosmetic dentistry, family dentistry, and restorative dentistry.
Your consultation will include a customized treatment plan for restoring teeth, an outline of the cost of planned services and a schedule for completing the work. Come with questions and leave with answers. Call us today at Kevin Bass DMD Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in North Penn.
