A dental implant is an artificial tooth. It may be recommended to replace a permanent tooth that has fallen out from an injury or was taken out because of bad tooth decay. Implants are natural-looking, can provide support for dentures, and do not affect the teeth bordering them.
Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.
Dental veneers – or porcelain veneers – are wafer-thin, laminates (or shells) of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth and are an excellent treatment for improving the color, shape, size, or length of each tooth.

Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that most people get in their late teens or early twenties. If there is enough space and these teeth are properly aligned, they can become valuable asset to your dental health. However, all too often they do not align well and frequently there is not enough space for them. If you or your teen is experiencing pain or discomfort from wisdom teeth, it is important to schedule a dental appointment right away.
