Dental implants look, feel, and act just like your natural teeth. With dental implants you can expect the full restoration of chewing function. And, your smile might look even better than before. This is because each porcelain crown, which fuses to the top of each dental implant, is custom designed to complement your facial structure, skin tone, lips, and surrounding teeth.
Dental implants can be used to replace one, several, or all of your teeth. They are the only solution available today that mimics your natural teeth and bite function. Dental implants truly do restore your smile.
Our dental implants are made of pure titanium, a biocompatible material that bonds with your natural DNA. A dental implant is a post placed in the bone. It replaces the root of your tooth. The implant then bonds with your bone. This provides benefits for your health:
Dental implants restore function. A crown made of porcelain, another biocompatible material, is fused onto the top of your dental implant. Together, the dental implant and porcelain crown offer a full and highly functional replacement of your tooth and its root system.
Dental implants stop bone degradation and support your oral health. When we lose a tooth, no matter the reason and no matter our age, we increase our risk for additional tooth loss. This is because when a tooth’s root detaches from the bone, destabilization occurs. Overtime, without a tooth’s root system, you experience bone loss. Once your bone is diminished, the roots of other teeth become unstable, placing you at greater risk for additional tooth loss.
Bonus: It is impossible to get a cavity with a dental implant. And, you’ll never need a root canal again.
A dental implant is composed of two parts. The dental implant is a pure titanium post. It replaces your tooth’s root. Once placed, your dental implant supports a dental crown, the second part. Your dental crown looks like a natural tooth. With your dental implant serving as a root of support, the crown is then fused on top, mimicking the natural appearance and function of a natural tooth.
