So you’ve lost some teeth and now are reluctant to smile because of the gaps. If only you could go back in time and take back 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 natural that implant recipients forget that they ever lost a tooth in the first place.
A tooth implant is anchored into the jawbone with a durable metal post. It doesn’t move around like dentures, and unlike a dental bridge, it protects healthy jawbone and restricts bone recession. After the post is totally 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 treatment at once.
If you’ve lost numerous 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 lighten your teeth to the sparkling color they were when you were a teenager. There are several different types of tooth whitening systems, from same-day procedures to at-home treatments. Again, speak with Drs. Thompson & Frey about your goals and budget.
Have you ever wished your smile looked like it did before you had any tooth decay? (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 problem as well. Talk to us about your goals for your smile. We look forward to designing a custom treatment plan to transform your smile. Call today!
