Dental offices have a range of cosmetic procedures that you or an employee can take advantage of, especially in situations like the one discussed in The New York Times article:
- Dentures – Dentures are often used to cover gaps between a set of teeth, especially if an entire section was lost through breakage. There are two options when choosing dentures: full and partial. The type of dentures you get will depend on the recommendation of your dentist. In choosing to wear dentures, a patient must learn how to clean and store them after use. This is important as proper care helps dentures last longer.
- Implants – Titanium dental implants have long made headway among dentists, as titanium is an optimal substitute for lost teeth by fusing with the jawbone. Implants may also be used as support pillars for partial or full dentures.
- Veneer – Porcelain veneers are favored for covering teeth with weak enamel or for teeth that have obvious gaps adjacent to other teeth. Veneers are also used to restore the shape or worn down and chipped teeth.
It is never too late to have teeth fixed in the most appropriate manner and help an employee regain his or her self-confidence. See a cosmetic dentistry practitioner today to learn the best way to address missing teeth.
