A missing tooth or teeth can affect your health more than you might think. If left untreated, a gap in your smile can lead to bone loss and further lost teeth. Dental implants are considered the gold standard for tooth replacement. The titanium base of implants act as a replacement for a missing tooth and provides stimulation to the underlying bone tissue, stopping further bone loss. Implants also provide a stable base for dental restorations such as bridges, crowns, and dentures.Learn More About Dental Implants
A tooth that has been compromised due to trauma or decay can be restored with a dental crown. After treating the cause of the damage, our Aiken dentists can repair and protect your tooth from further harm with a crown. This can prevent the need for extraction in the future. Made from high-quality composite materials, a restoration can be matched to the shade of your surrounding teeth.Learn More About Dental Crowns
Patients at our Aiken, SC, dental office who are unhappy with the appearance of their front teeth may benefit from the ultra-thin, custom-made porcelain shells of dental veneers. Worn, chipped, or slightly crooked teeth can cause you smile to appear unhealthy and can undermine your self-confidence. Veneers can conceal chips, cracks, minor misalignments, gaps, and stubborn discoloration that do not respond to professional whitening treatment.Learn More About Veneers
