Single Tooth Replacement

The Challenge: "J." had a congenitally missing front lateral tooth. This is a condition where a permanent tooth does not develop. The other lateral tooth was undersized, a condition referred to as a "peg-lateral". Orthodontic treatment resulted in creating optimal alignment of the teeth. "J." and his mother wanted to fill in the missing tooth and make the "skinny" tooth look more normal. The Solution: I restored the missing tooth with an all-ceramic crown over a dental implant. I matched the "peg-lateral" to the implant crown by veneering that tooth. These results were completed in two appointments. "J." said his new smile made him look more like a man and less like a boy. Dental implants are the ideal way to replace a missing teeth.

For over 40 years, dental implants have proven to be extremely reliable. Implants do not depend on natural teeth for support. Implant restorations CANNOT get decay and they do not hurt to have placed.

Very attentive, thorough staff!!

Very attentive, thorough staff! Was in today receiving a crown and fillings-I felt absolutely nothing during the procedure and was impressed with how quickly the appointment went and how thoroughly the dentist explained everything. I highly recommend this dental group!
