So you’ve lost some teeth and now hesitate to smile because of the gaps. If only you could go back in time and regain that full-toothed smile you once had. Guess what? With dental implants, you can!
For most patients, a tooth implant is the ideal replacement for both the root and crown of a tooth. They feel so authentic that implant recipients forget that they ever lost a tooth in the first place.
A tooth implant is anchored into the jawbone with a strong metal post. It doesn’t wiggle around like dentures, and unlike a dental bridge, it guards healthy jawbone and prohibits bone recession. After the post is entirely enmeshed with the jawbone, the supporting device (called an abutment) and beautiful crown are solidly attached to the post. Some patients are able to undergo all three parts of the procedure at once.
If you’ve lost several teeth, you may be a good candidate for implant-anchored dentures. Talk to us to learn more.
Another way to go back in time is to bleach your teeth to the dazzling color they were when you were a teen. There are several different types of tooth whitening systems, from same-day procedures to at-home treatments. Again, communicate with Drs. Almeida about your goals and budget.
Have you ever wished your smile looked like it did before you had any cavities? (Many of us can’t remember that far back!) Talk to us about tooth-colored fillings. White fillings match your teeth, and dramatically improve your smile without crowns.
Perhaps you have chipped a tooth. We have numerous solutions to repair that trouble as well. Talk to us about your goals for your smile. We look forward to formulating a custom treatment plan to perfect your smile. Call today!
