Replacements for Missing Teeth
If you’ve lost a tooth and live in Maury or Williamson County, you might be wondering about your options. Should you just live with it? What if the missing tooth is near the front of your mouth and its absence is obvious?
Crowns and bridges are convenient tooth replacement options offered by Dr. Hunter at Patrick Hunter Family Dentistry. These dental prosthetics are ideal if you have lost a single tooth or just a few teeth. In cases like this, there is no need for dentures but you will still want a natural-appearing smile and to avoid the embarrassment of missing teeth.
Additionally, beyond esthetics, replacing your missing teeth with a crown and bridge combination will help to prevent decay of nearby teeth. A bridge can also guard against trauma to your gum tissue and bone loss in your jaw. A complete smile is a healthy smile.
Depending on your specific situation, Dr. Hunter can often install bridgework in a maximum of two visits. He will always be happy to go over the details of the process with you and let you know all of your options before proceeding.
Don’t hesitate to call Patrick Hunter Family Dentistry at (931) 451-5188 to learn more about your tooth replacement choices.
What Our Patient Says
"Dr Hunter is awesome. He was my dentist at another location for a bit. So happy he's opening his own practice. I'm switching to him from a place I've been going to for over 15 years. I've always wanted a private practice office to go to, and now I have it; with a dentist I trust at that."- Acacia
