A damaged smile isn’t the end of the road. While a replacement tooth may not grow in to replace a missing tooth, you do have prosthetic dentistry options to rebuild your smile. No one deserves to go through life hiding their teeth from the world. You should be able to smile with confidence. Dental implants make that a possibility after tooth loss. These dental prosthetics have changed what it means to rebuild a smile. Dental implants provide a long-term replacement that looks and feels like a natural tooth. It’s time to explore this option for yourself.
Dental Implants Look Just Like Natural Teeth
It’s not the dental implant that looks like your natural tooth, but rather, the crown fixed atop your implant. Dental implants are titanium screws, inserted into your jawbone. The dental crown will be placed on top of the titanium post after it heals. Your dentist can fabricate a custom-fitted dental crown to complete the visual esthetic of your dental prosthetic. The crown will be made using measurements of your existing teeth, to ensure that the restoration fits comfortably alongside them. Afterward, you will hardly be able to notice that one of your teeth is unlike the others.
Dental Implants Also Function Like Natural Teeth
While looks are important when it comes to your confidence, they’re not the only piece of this rebuilding equation. Your dental prosthetic needs to function like a natural tooth. Dental implants are surgically inserted into your jaw to give them maximum strength. The titanium post acts like tooth roots and holds your teeth in place, even during the stress of biting and chewing. This means that you can expect to experience bite power and stability akin to what you would with your natural tooth. Your implant will stand up to regular use.
Dental Implants Restore Confidence in the Face of Tooth Loss
Tooth loss is often a traumatic experience. If the tooth loss is sudden, it can be shocking and upsetting. If the tooth loss is the product of years of tooth decay, that entire process can be painful, and you may need significant cleaning and restoration in many of your teeth to recover. Dental implants make the process a little easier by providing a comprehensive recovery. Your dental implants will restore your confidence in your smile, as well as your confidence in your new tooth.
