In brief: Replace them.

Replace missing teeth with an implant-based restoration, a fixed or removable bridge, something temporary, or move the teeth around the space to close it.
Your dentist can help you explore the best option for your mouth.

Great answer! So many options are available for you: Dental Implants to support both fixed and removable replacements, using existing teeth with good prognosis to act as fixed bridge or removable bridge anchors, etc... Ultimately you and your dentist can determines what's right for you. A balanced and even bite is healthy and allows for optimal function. Often times great appearance is a bonus

In brief: Implants,bridges

If you are thinking about filling the spaces, implants are the best and longest lasting treatment we can provide.
Bridges are the next best and esthetic option. A removable partial denture is least desirable and esthetic. See a specialist - a prosthodontist - to learn about your options. At by design dental implant center in king of prussia, pa, we specialize in this kind of total treatment

In brief: Lots

Best solution is get your teeth straightened first, then implants/crowns (best), fixed bridge, or removable partial denture (last choice).
But everyone is different, so ask your dentist for the options that will work best for your individual problem.

In brief: Many

Dental implants can hold a cosmetic dental crown.
In some circumstances, a porcelain (permanent) bridge is still a good solution. See a cosmetic dentist if you are concerned about how the results will look. With the right plan you can have a strong, permanent and attractive cosmetic result.
