Halloween just ended and Thanksgiving will be here before you know it. That’s a lot of delicious food to enjoy … if you can.
If you are missing a tooth or a few teeth, that may be more difficult. Your missing teeth can make it difficult to bite and chew certain foods. Then again, knowing you are missing some teeth may make you avoid treats since you want to keep the teeth you have left.
Regardless of the reason for the extra space in your smile, you can fill it with teeth replacements in Marietta, GA. By visiting Atlanta West Dentistry, you can get back your smile and start looking forward to holiday foods for years to come.

Recreate a Complete Smile with a Dental Crown
Losing a tooth can be tough. Each of your teeth plays an important role, and missing one can affect you in multiple ways.
As we mentioned, you may have more difficulty biting and chewing depending on which tooth is missing. It’s tempting to think you’ll just eat with teeth in another part of your mouth. The problem is that can cause more wear and tear on those teeth, which could lead to other problems.
A missing tooth may affect how you pronounce some words. It also can cause some people to feel self-conscious about smiling.
A great way to replace your lost tooth is with an implant-supported dental crown. The implant replaces your missing root, and the crown gives you a complete replacement tooth.
This restores the natural appearance of your smile, lets you speak normally, and allows you to bite and chew with both sides of your mouth again.
Get Back What’s Gone with a Dental Bridge
If you are missing multiple teeth, a dental crown may not be enough to fill the gap between your remaining teeth. However, crowns can be combined to build a dental bridge.
That means your bridge can look just as natural as today’s modern crowns. With a bridge in place, your smile can look as good as new.
Bridges also can be secured in your mouth with dental implants. This makes your bridge stable and strong, so once again you can eat the foods that you love.
