A smile makeover allows you to improve the appearance of your smile with a variety of cosmetic dentistry or restorative dentistry procedures. A cosmetic dentist can learn more about your goals during a smile makeover consultation. A smile makeover may include a series of treatments or just a standalone treatment such as dental implants. From there, they will create a custom treatment plan that gives you the smile of your dreams.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are similar to screws and when placed into the jaw, they bond with the natural bone. This becomes a base for supporting artificial teeth or crowns. In order to be a candidate for dental implants, you must have one or more missing teeth, are unable to wear dentures, have a strong jaw bone that withstand the healing process or have a speech problem that can be improved with dental implants.
Are dental implants safe?
Dental implants are one of the most reliable cosmetic dentistry procedures to replace missing teeth. They allow patients to return to regular eating and to speaking comfortably fast. They are durable and can last a long time with proper oral hygiene, regular dental exams and routine dental cleanings.
The Dental Implant Process
Dental implants replace the root of a missing tooth with a screw-like post. First, the damaged tooth is removed. Next, the jawbone is prepared. The dental implant is placed into the jawbone to serve as the root of the artificial tooth. A healing period must occur where the post will meld into the jawbone providing a strong base for the restoration.
