Having a missing tooth not only changes the way you look, but it can also change the shape of your jawline. A gap in your smile can cause surrounding teeth to shift towards the empty space, leading to bone deterioration and a change in your facial appearance.
Restoring your missing tooth prevents dental issues and allows you to enjoy your favorite foods and speak with clarity. If you currently hide your smile because of a missing tooth, Dr. Belle can provide the dental procedures to restore your confidence and quality of life.
Restoring a Missing Tooth
At North Tampa Dentistry, our tooth replacement procedures include:
Full and partial dentures are excellent tooth replacement options for many patients in Tampa, FL. Due to improvements in dental technology and materials, modern dentures are natural-looking and more comfortable than dentures made decades ago.
Dental implants are considered the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants replace the full tooth, including the root, which stimulates bone growth and prevents your teeth from shifting. With proper care and maintenance, Carrollwood patients can enjoy their dental implants for a lifetime.
Dental bridges are a perfect solution if you are missing one or multiple teeth. Bridges utilize neighboring teeth to "bridge" the dental restoration in the gap. Many patients enjoy how natural-looking and comfortable this dental prosthetic is.
