Dental Implants: The Ins and Outs
Your smile is a reflection of you. But seeing a dentist for regular cleanings and check-ups doesn’t always land at the top of your to-do list. Cosmetic dentistry is important to achieving a smile you can be proud of. At Matthew Smiles Dentistry, we are experts in dental implants, as well as other cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Dental implants are not necessary for everyone. But some of us suffer from tooth decay that can result in the loss of a tooth. Others may not be born with a tooth, and some just don’t seem to like the look of their smile. Dentures can be frustrating, and temporary teeth may pop out. If you are looking for a comfortable and realistic looking smile, consider dental implants!
What’s the Process?
Not to worry, dental implants do not have to be scary. At Matthew Smiles, we are committed to making you feel comfortable. While dental implants do involve surgery, we are highly trained in cosmetic dentistry, and can explain the process beforehand. Seeing your dentist for a consultation can be a great resource to determine if dental implants are your best option, and can provide you with all the information you need to feel comfortable with dental implant surgery.
The dental implant itself is a small post that is meant to act like the root of a tooth. Dental implants are bonded to your jaw bone, so when the procedure is over and the healing process begins, they will feel just like your own. Once the implant is placed, your bone will naturally grow around the implant, which is what provides the stability and strength of the new tooth. Once the healing process has ended, we will then be able to place the artificial tooth in your mouth. We ensure that the artificial tooth is made to match your other teeth exactly, so you can flash your smile with confidence.
Dental implants are not limited to one tooth. You can also opt for full arch implants in order to redesign your smile entirely. When it comes to your smile, you should never settle! We know better than anyone how important your smile is to you, and it remains our goal to keep up your own, uniquely beautiful smile with our expert team at Matthew Smiles.
Wanting to refresh the rest of your teeth a bit? We can also perform teeth whitening so your entire mouth feels new and improved!
