If holes or chips in your smile are leaving your mouth vulnerable to infection, consider one of the following solutions for missing teeth outlined in today’s post, along with the other great options for smile improvements through cosmetic dentistry, and then give us a call at 603-546-7460 to get started on your transformative journey.
A dental implant functions as a replacement tooth root. It is placed in the jawbone where it fuses with the bone, making it just as durable and long-lasting as a healthy, natural tooth. Dental implants are typically capped with a dental crown to provide the look and feel of a natural tooth. With proper care, a dental implant can last for decades.
A fixed bridge literally bridges the gap between one or more missing teeth. A bridge uses healthy teeth on either side of the gap left by missing teeth to hold the replacement tooth. Once in place, a fixed bridge looks, feels, and functions like a natural tooth.
Partial or Complete Dentures
A partial or complete denture is a removable option for patients who are missing several or most of their teeth. Removable partial dentures can replace a small section of missing teeth, while a removable complete denture can replace most or all of your teeth.
With dentures, both partial and complete, they must be removed and cleaned every night. However, they can be a great, natural-looking option for people who want to restore their smile.
Solutions for Stained or Discolored Teeth
While stained or discolored teeth aren’t necessarily a sign of a health problem, it can be embarrassing enough to make you want to hide your smile. Fortunately, when it comes to giving your smile a makeover, the color of your teeth is one of the easiest things to fix.
Some patients can benefit from a professional teeth whitening session. Unlike at-home whitening kits, teeth whitening performed by a dentist is sure to produce dramatic yet natural-looking results. By brightening your teeth even just a few shades, you will feel like you have a brand-new smile.
To fix more severe discoloration or to cover up other minor cosmetic issues like chipped or worn-down teeth, Nashua Family Dentistry offers veneers. Dental veneers, typically made of porcelain, are bonded to the front of your teeth to give you a whole new smile.
Solutions for Crooked or Misaligned Teeth
Regardless of how crooked or misaligned your teeth are, there is a solution that will turn your smile into one you deserve. Crooked or misaligned teeth can cause issues with your bite or make it difficult to properly clean your teeth. There are several options for repairing a crooked or misaligned smile. Learn more about each one below.
Invisalign or Conventional Metal Braces
If crooked or misaligned teeth are affecting your self-confidence, and you’d really benefit from orthodontic treatment, we can refer you to our partner orthodontist, who is conveniently located right next door. He offers a complete range of orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign.
