  • I have a few friends who have one or two false teeth that are "cemented in", whatever that means. They look fine, but they do occasionally fall out. They then have to go to a dentist and have them replaced/ re-cemented.

  • Well there is bridge work - where they "bridge" a fake tooth in between two healthy teeth, partial dentures, dental implants - which are permanent but very $$$...
