Tooth Replacement

The tooth that is being removed can be used as a temporary replacement. The root of the tooth is removed and what remains gets bonded to the neighboring teeth. This procedure, however, cannot be done in every case, and without a photo I can't say if it would work for you.  


Other temporary options include a Snap-on Smile or a Maryland bridge. Both will work as a temporary for an extracted front tooth.
