Have you lost teeth? It’s a lot different than when you lost your baby teeth way back in the day. Unfortunately, these don’t grow back and a gap-toothed smile doesn’t look as cute as it did when you were in kindergarten.
If you have had teeth extracted or if your teeth are compromised by staining, decay, chipping, or brittle aging, then it’s time to visit Dr. Craig Longenecker at Hereford Dental Health for cosmetic dentistry in Parkton. Dr. Longenecker has built a practice teeming with experience, filled with kindness, flowing with a gentle touch, and carrying all the wisdom of savvy professionals.
When it comes to the prospect of losing your adult teeth, the preference is always to retain your natural teeth. If this is not feasible, 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 unhappy with them, porcelain veneers might be your solution. Stunning porcelain veneers offer a cost-effective approach to cosmetic adjustments – uneven color, size, or shape. These are very thin shells bonded to the front of the teeth. They enhance 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 dental patients who have lost teeth for various reasons.
A dental implant is a more extensive replacement for a missing tooth. An implant consists of an artificial tooth plus an artificial root. With local anesthesia, the artificial root is actually inserted into the jaw bone where it integrates with the bone tissue. There are three parts to a dental implant, the artificial root, the connecting abutment, and the final crown. An implant is often the ideal restoration as it offers beauty, strength, natural function, and protection from bone recession that often take places at the site of a missing tooth.
