Front Tooth Replacement

A single tooth may be missing due to a number of reasons: infection, an accident, or possibly being born without the tooth. The most conservative route to replace a tooth is the dental implant. Here are a few patients Dr. Chao treated that show how a dental implant can enhance your smile naturally, without affecting your other teeth:

Referred by her orthodontist, this young woman was about to lose tooth #8 (her upper right front tooth).  She was already missing her lateral also!  We replaced the two teeth with one implant and had a 2-tooth bridge made. I hope it is difficult to tell which tooth is the implant. -Actual patient of Dr. Chao

Referred by her general dentist, this woman was terrified about losing her front tooth. She learned that it was “all right” to lose a tooth. Her oral health improved and so did her smile!-Actual patient of Dr. Chao
