If you have missing teeth in Monkton due to dental caries, injury or any other reason, there is hope. If your existing teeth are stained, decayed, or cracked, there is hope. If your teeth have always been misshapen, or crooked, there is hope. Cosmetic dentistry can fix all of those problems.
Dr. Longenecker at Hereford Dental Health – Craig Longenecker DDS has the know-how to handle the toughest of cosmetic dental problems. Since 1998, Dr. Longenecker has restored and improved smiles with advanced cosmetic dentistry.
Regardless of the problem, it is usually preferable to retain your natural teeth. If this is not viable, and you have already lost teeth, we offer numerous ways for you to preserve (or regain) your ability to eat, drink, speak, laugh, and smile with confidence.
If you still have your teeth but are not happy with them, these might be the best answer. Stunning porcelain veneers offer a relatively affordable approach to cosmetic adjustments – uneven color, size, or shape. These are very thin shells bonded to the front of the teeth. They upgrade unsightly, but structurally sound teeth.
A dental implant is a tooth replacement that 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. There are three parts to a dental implant, the artificial root, the connecting abutment, and the final crown or denture.
A dental implant is often the best-suited restoration for missing teeth in Monkton, as it offers beauty, strength, natural function, and protection from bone recession that often take place.
Most Monkton residents have heard of dentures, a plate holding artificial teeth that can be removed for cleaning. These are custom and can contain varying numbers of teeth. Sometimes the entire set of upper and lower teeth have to be pulled and a denture created. Modern dentistry offers a myriad of custom dental implant-denture combinations to restore missing teeth in Monkton.
