No one likes to lose a tooth or have a gap between their teeth. Okay, maybe James Bond villains to, but for most of us, these issues can be embarrassing or affect biting and chewing. Not only is your smile compromised, but your overall oral health could be, too, if a missing tooth is left untreated.
