So you’ve lost some teeth and now hesitate to smile because of the gaps. If only you could go back in time and recover that full-toothed smile you once had. Guess what? With dental implants, you can!
For most patients, a tooth implant is the optimal replacement for both the root and crown of a tooth. They feel so genuine that implant recipients forget that they ever lost a tooth in the first place.
A tooth implant is anchored into the jawbone with a sturdy metal post. It doesn’t move around like dentures, and unlike a dental bridge, it safeguards a healthy jawbone and prevents bone recession. After the post is totally enmeshed with the jawbone, the supporting device (called an abutment) and beautiful crown are securely attached to the post. Some patients are able to undergo all three parts of the procedure at once.
If you’ve lost numerous teeth, you may be a good candidate for implant-anchored dentures. Talk to Dr. Longenecker to learn more.
Another way to go back in time is to whiten your teeth to the bright 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, talk to Dr. Longenecker 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 significantly improve your smile without crowns.
