Go to the dentist and actually see the dentist!

teeth replacement

In our culture, a nice smile is part of the "dress code".  Missing teeth can have a significant and negative impact on how people perceive you.  Missing teeth are quite common in the US.  So common in fact that the average adult is missing up to 7 teeth and the percentage of adults with no teeth is 10%.


When teeth are missing, the remaining teeth take a heavy tole and will be more prone to other problems due to increased pressure on them.  Once one tooth is lost and not replaces, it typically beings a vicious cycle of tooth loss.


There are 3 ways to replace missing teeth:

 • Dental Impants

 • Fixed Bridges

 • Removeable Dentures either Partial or Complete


There has never been a more exciting time in Dentistry. New materials and techniques enable us to restore your smile artistically. Our Traverse City office is located on the North West corner at the intersection of E. Front St. and Garfield Ave.

A cosmetic dentist with the appropriate training, like Dr. Salon, can create amazing improvements to your smile. Often, we are judged professionally and socially based on our appearance. A confident smile also helps you project a positive image. When your smile is healthy and attractive many benefits follow.
