Have you lost teeth? 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 cute as it did when you were in kindergarten.
If you have had teeth extracted or if your teeth are compromised by staining, decay, chipping, or brittle aging, then it’s time to consider cosmetic dentistry in Missoula. If you’re currently looking for a dentist, Dr. Felton has built a practice teeming with experience, kindness, and carrying all the wisdom of professionals.
When it comes to the prospect of losing your adult teeth, the preference is always to retain your natural teeth. If this is not possible, we offer several ways to maintain your ability to eat, drink, speak, laugh, and smile in selfies.
If you still have your teeth but are not happy with them, dental veneers might be your ideal solution. Stunning porcelain veneers offer an affordable approach to cosmetic concerns – uneven color, size, or shape. These are very thin shells bonded to the front of the teeth. They brighten unsightly, but structurally sound teeth.
A dental implant is a more extensive replacement for a missing tooth. An implant 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. An implant is often the ideal restoration as it offers beauty, strength, natural function, and protection from bone recession that often occurs at the site of a missing tooth.
Most Missoula residents have heard of dentures, a plate holding artificial teeth that can be removed by the wearer. These are tailor-made 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.
