Are you dealing with a missing teeth problem? You’re not the only one. Missing teeth are a part of millions of people’s problems. Missing teeth can be terrible for your oral health for many reasons, including inviting bacteria to throw a party. We don’t like bacteria parties, and neither should you. Bacteria that is left untreated can leave your mouth in pain and disease that must be tended to. The easiest way to alleviate the pain and frustration that missing teeth can cause is through dental implant treatment.

Are you missing one or more teeth? Dealing with tooth loss can be a traumatic and confusing experience. Ideally, our natural teeth should last a lifetime; however, for many Americans, that’s just not that case. Tooth damage and tooth loss can occur at any age. Advanced gum disease is the current leading cause of tooth loss in adults. The risk for tooth loss is increased for those who use tobacco products, or suffer from heart disease or diabetes. For older adults, plaque can naturally accumulate and become harder to remove. Gum recession, older fillings and dry mouth can also put seniors at risk of losing their natural teeth. Children can also experience tooth loss through injury or neglect. Damaged or missing teeth are not only embarrassing; they can also restrict your diet, cause sensitivity, make you look older, and make your other teeth vulnerable to decay. Don’t let tooth damage or tooth loss wreak havoc on your dental health. If you, or a loved one, have missing or damaged teeth for any reason, you should make a restorative dentistry appointment with Smile Care Family Dentistry today. Smile Care Family Dentistry offers high quality crowns and bridges to restore your oral health. The experienced team at Smile Care Family Dentistry proudly renew smiles daily throughout Virginia Beach, VA, Norfolk, Chesapeake, and nearby areas.
What Is a Dental Crown?
Usually made from ceramic or porcelains, dental crowns are tooth-like caps that can be placed over a damaged tooth to restore its natural shape, size, strength, and functioning. Cemented dental crowns fully enclose the visible portion of a tooth above the gum line, or fully replace a missing tooth with a dental implant. You made need a dental crown to:
- Protect a weak tooth
- Hold together parts of a cracked or chipped tooth
- Restore a broken or worn down tooth
- Support a tooth with a large filling
- Improve the appearance of misshapen or discolored tooth
- Dental implant restoration
- Save a tooth that can’t support a filling
- Protect the baby teeth of a child at high risk for tooth decay
What Is a Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges are used to “bridge the gap” between one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges consist of one or more dental crowns. They serve to anchor dental crowns to surrounding healthy teeth. You may need a dental bridge to:
- Restore your natural smile
- Restore your natural tooth functioning
- Maintain youthful facial features
- Redistribute bite forces
- Prevent remaining teeth from shifting
