Can Smile Hub Dental Clinic restore my missing back tooth?


At Smile Hub Dental Clinic in Bayside Medical Centre your friendly and professional dentist will explain all your treatment options following a comprehensive oral examination. We know how important your back teeth are for chewing your food. Back teeth endure a lot of force during eating and unfortunately when a tooth breaks or a large filling or crown cracks it can mean that a dental extraction is needed.


At Smile Hub Dental Clinic in North Dublin we often recommend a dental implant as it is a predictable fixed and permanent way to replace a missing back tooth gap. Dental implant screws are the same size as the root of the natural tooth and the porcelain implant crown feels like the enamel of teeth. Dental implants feel and function like natural teeth however they require regular 6 monthly check-ups and cleanings with your dentist similar to a natural tooth.


Frequently Asked Questions

Can Smile Hub Dental Clinic restore my missing back tooth?

At Smile Hub Dental Clinic in Bayside Medical Centre we often recommend a dental bridge to replace a missing tooth by using the neighbouring teeth for support. The neighbouring teeth are ground down to support the bridge and a false porcelain tooth is suspended off of it. Bridges can weaken teeth over time and decrease their life-span.


At Smile Hub Dental Clinic a partial denture is often recommended as a removable option for replacing a missing tooth. This involves a false tooth which is placed on a plate that rests on your gums and against your neighbouring teeth. A partial denture can feel bulky and cause discomfort.


In Smile Hub Dental Clinic we often advise patients that dental implants are the best way to restore the function and aesthetics of missing teeth. Dental implants are screws which are placed beneath the gums which then have a porcelain crown permanently connected to the dental implant. Patient’s always comment that dental implants look, feel and function like the tooth that they lost. Dental implants are an excellent treatment option for a missing tooth or gap in the mouth when sufficient jawbone is present to place the implant screw and there is enough room for the implant crown.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

At Smile Hub Dental Clinic we make our dental implant crowns with the highest quality porcelain so they blend naturally with your neighbouring teeth. Your dental implant will help to preserve your gum and bone where your tooth was lost.


Dental implants are comfortable as they feel like a natural tooth. The porcelain crown feels like the enamel of teeth and a dental implant crown has the same dimensions as your missing tooth.


Dental implants allows patients to bite and chew food comfortably. It is a tooth for life if you maintain excellent oral hygiene and do not smoke. Regular 6 monthly visits with your dentist in Smile Hub Dental Clinic for a check up and dental professional cleaning is important.


Dental implants give patients confidence when eating, smiling and talking.
