 Single Tooth Replacement

Missing Tooth - Scotch Plains, NJ - Dentalcare Associates

A missing tooth doesn't have to detract from the beauty of your smile. At Dentalcare Associates, we offer several options for single tooth replacement, and our knowledgeable dental team will be glad to help you decide on the best solution.

Who Needs Tooth Replacement?

Individuals with one or more missing teeth often look into tooth replacement services. Some of our patients lose teeth during accidents or injuries, and others want to replace decayed or diseased teeth. Adults with healthy gums and strong jawbones are typically the best candidates for single tooth replacement procedures. Bone grafts and other corrective treatments increase success rates for others.

Single Tooth Replacement Options

Dental implants provide the most natural and longest lasting replacement solution. Implants with ceramic crowns look and function like real teeth, and the surrounding teeth are not affected. Fixed bridges provide a strong and stable option for multiple tooth replacement, but nearby teeth are often filed down during the installation. Resin-bonded bridges offer the same looks and functionality without damaging healthy teeth, but the results are less permanent.
