Black holes? Or blinding white?
In the course of our lives, we lose one or the other tooth. This gap is not a disaster. And certainly no disgrace. To replace teeth, you do today no more bridges, but sets implants. Instead grind healthy adjacent teeth, so you get an additional brand new tooth.
Implants are tooth root-like titanium screws, which I successfully Place in the bone since now more than twenty years. This is then crowns are placed.
The procedure is painless and takes no longer than the grinding of a tooth to receive a crown at standard conditions.
