Do you have one or more gaps in your smile where you have lost teeth? In addition to changing your smile’s appearance, a missing tooth can increase your risk of gum disease, tooth decay, and drifting teeth. Our team is pleased to offer dental implants to restore the strength and durability that tooth loss has stolen from your smile. Tooth loss can negatively affect your smile in many ways, but what many people don’t realize is that one of these side effects is weakened bone. Placing a dental implant stops the bone from becoming weak and keeps the jawbone strong by providing necessary support. To ensure your dental implant will blend with your smile, our dentist will cover it with a dental restoration such as a crown that looks like your original tooth. The restoration is custom crafted to mimic size, shape, and color, and the dental implant allows it to feel and function like a real tooth. If you exercise proper care of a dental implant, it can support and enhance your smile for your whole life.
