Patients do not have to live with the poor aesthetics of a missing tooth or the poor function of having a gap in their bite. Filling in the space with a dental implant or other restoration not only improves the look of the smile, but it can also restore the chewing function. Leaving a gap in the smile also puts the remaining, healthy teeth at risk of shifting to fill in the space.
It’s a good idea to replacement missing teeth in the smile—not only for aesthetics but for better function as well. For more information about dental implants and veneers, we invite you to contact our Casuarina dental surgery.
