Tooth Filling, Dental Implants, and Dentures in Lakewood
What a great time to live! Just look at cowboy movies and those of a bygone era, nobody really had attractive teeth – especially once they reached an older age. If a tooth was knocked out due to trauma, or extracted due to tooth decay, there was little hope of replacing that tooth with an attractive well-fitting piece.
Your best bet would have been a wooden tooth or finding someone with a tooth just the right size as yours and taking theirs! Don’t even get us started on teeth whitening!
But now in the 21st century, losing a tooth is not a big deal for aesthetically-conscious people. In some cases losing a tooth can be a good thing, because replacing a tooth can lead to a more attractive and just as strong and sturdy replacement.
For whatever reason, people often lose adult teeth. It’s a fact of life and there’s no changing that. What has changed are the procedures in which we go about replacing that tooth, ensuring that our patients have a smile that provides confidence and raises self-esteem.
Here’s a list of the procedures that we call Restorative Dentistry. We will start from the least invasive and the most common and work our way to the most complex.
