Teeth that are visually apparent in the front of your mouth play a variety of important roles, including the ability to efficiently bite off pieces of food and appearing in your smile. When one of these teeth is lost to a severe dental avulsion, an untreated cavity, or a treatment based extraction, it can significantly hamper your essential oral function, as well as cause you to feel self-conscious about your appearance.
In a scenario like this, you can turn to Ralph M. Hoffmann, DMD, FACP, and the staff specialists at Prosthodontics of the Carolinas clinic in Charlotte, North Carolina. After assessing the situation and the general health of the neighboring teeth he can help you understand your dental restoration options.
One of the fastest and most effective ways to replace a missing tooth is to perform a dental bridge restoration. This treatment process will anchor a single piece of dental work by using two dental crowns, which are custom made to fit the location of the two teeth neighboring the void. The replicate tooth in the middle will replace the function of your previously missing tooth.
If you are the Charlotte, North Carolina, area and you are missing a front tooth, you should call 704-364-3770 to schedule an appointment at Prosthodontics of the Carolinas.
