Do you have missing teeth in Beverly Hills? 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 adorable as it did when you were in elementary school.
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 with Dr. Bill Dorfman at Dr. Bill Dorfman, DDS – Century City Aesthetic Dentistry. When it comes to the prospect of losing your adult teeth, the preference is always to save your natural teeth. If this is not viable, we offer several ways to maintain your ability to eat, drink, speak, laugh, and smile in pictures.
If you still have your teeth but are not happy with them, these might be your solution. Stunning porcelain veneers offer a competitively-priced approach to cosmetic adjustments—uneven color, size, or shape. These are very thin shells bonded to the front of the teeth. They improve unsightly, but structurally sound teeth.
A dental bridge is used when a patient has missing teeth in Beverly Hills. It “bridges” a gap between teeth. Essentially, it is a restoration with a false tooth 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 missing teeth in Beverly Hills. An implant consists of an artificial tooth plus an artificial root usually made of bio-compatible 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. An implant is often the optimal restoration as it offers beauty, strength, natural function, and protection from bone recession that often occurs at the site of a missing tooth.
