Missing teeth can have a negative impact on the aesthetics of your smile and your health. Depending on the location of missing teeth, they can also have damaging effects on your self-confidence and how attractive you believe your smile to be. Dental implants are one of the most ideal tooth replacement options available to patients today. Designed to replicate the structure of natural teeth, dental implants have the ability to replace one or more missing teeth with nearly identical levels of function and aesthetics.
We partner with an experienced oral surgeon who places dental implants and we restore them with custom dental crowns in-office using CEREC same-day technology. Our skilled cosmetic dentist, Dr. Brian Gilbert, has advanced training in comprehensive treatment planning and restoration of dental implants and meticulously designs dental crowns for the greatest improvements in smile aesthetics and oral function. If you are interested in learning more about dental implants, you can schedule a no-charge implant consultation with Dr. Gilbert.
Dr. Gilbert is skilled in designing the dental crowns used to restore dental implants. He works closely with our partner oral surgeon to create a treatment plan that ensures your dental implants are placed in the most precise position to best accommodate the dental crowns. Designed to fit snugly between existing teeth and blend in size and color, fully restored dental implants are virtually indistinguishable when compared to natural teeth.
Missing teeth cause a significant drop in biting and chewing force needed to eat a variety of foods. Dental implants are permanent and stable when restored, allowing for an increase in eating ability of solid foods like chicken, nuts, and raw vegetables that make up a healthy diet. Along with halting jaw bone deterioration and shifting teeth, dental implants allow patients to maintain proper oral and overall health.
Dental implants are surgically placed into the jaw bone and will mimic the same movements during chewing as natural tooth roots. Just as if you had never lost a tooth, dental implants replace nearly 100 percent of function necessary to eat comfortably. Dental implants also help to retain the shape of the jaw by providing the same type of stimulation to the bone as natural teeth do when eating.
As the only permanent replacement to missing teeth, dental implants offer significant advantages over other restorative options. Choosing dental implants not only affords aesthetic benefits, but lifelong improvements in your health and wellbeing as well. Dental implants have the ability to transform the appearance and function of your smile, restoring total confidence in your smile!
