What should I do about a missing tooth?

A missing tooth can affect how you feel about your smile, the way you express yourself, and how you eat and speak. Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you. Feeling self-conscious about a missing tooth can cast a dark cloud over activities that you should enjoy, such as smiling and laughing.

At Brite Dental, we realize that every person has different goals for their teeth and smile. That is why we offer a variety of ways to replace a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth.

Dental implants – Implants offer unsurpassed reliability and convenience. They also provide health benefits such as bone retention.

Dental bridges – When you are missing one to several teeth and want a different option than dental implants, dental bridges can help act as a placeholder and complete your smile. Each bridge we create will match your smile so it appears seamless.

Partial or full dentures – If you have more than several missing teeth or you are missing all of your teeth, a partial or full denture may work for you. If you want the best of both worlds, you can even opt for a implant-retained denture to hold your denture in place, securely.
