What can be worse than losing one of your front teeth. This person lost one of her front teeth, but the adjacent teeth were perfectly healthy. The old way of restoring this tooth would be to grind down the adjacent teeth to stumps and place a three tooth “bridge” which obviously requires severe damage to the healthy teeth. Now instead of violating these pristine teeth, a titanium cylinder can be inserted into the bone where the tooth was lost. Then after an appropriate time for healing, a porcelain crown can be attached. A master technician can match the appearance of the single porcelain crown to the adjacent teeth; so that the two become indistinguishable.
