Dental implants look, feel and function just like natural teeth. The secret of what sets dental implants apart from other forms of teeth replacement is the implant itself, which is placed inside or on the jaw to serve as the root of the replacement tooth. The benefits of dental implants include:
- Prevents bone loss
- Increased comfort
- More food choices
- Long-term solution
- Versatile options
Dental implants, of course, improve the physical appearance of those who have lost teeth, which is also the case with alternative solutions such as traditional dentures. However, unlike traditional dentures, dental implants also preserve the existing bone inside the jaw. Many patients also find them to be more comfortable than dentures and find they have more food options available.
It is not uncommon for dental implants to last more than twenty years, and they can be used to replace a single missing tooth, a section of missing teeth or an entire row.
The dental implants process is, however, more invasive, and it does require a minor surgical procedure to place the implant(s) into the jaw. It typically takes several months for the natural bone in the jaw to properly fuse together with the implant, after which the abutment of the implant and the artificial replacement (crown, bridge, etc.) is placed to complete the restoration.

Implant-supported dentures are a specific form of dental implants in which multiple implants are strategically placed into the jawbone to support dentures. Whereas traditional dentures rest upon and are supported by the gums, implant-supported dentures provide a more secure and comfortable hold by attaching to implants, which essentially serve as the root of the replacement teeth. There are several notable benefits implant-supported dentures offer over traditional dentures, including the following:
- Secure placement
- Comfortable feel
- Easier mouth function
- Increased durability
- Improved appearance
Implant-supported dentures offer a more secure attachment, which many patients report feels better and helps with eating and speaking each day. Many who choose implant-supported dentures often experience fewer issues with the dentures, and they typically feel more confident about their appearance as the implant-supported dentures feel more like natural teeth than traditional dentures.
Similar to implant-supported crowns and bridges, implant-supported dentures also require a more invasive process, which involves the placement of the implants, time for healing and osseointegration to take place and finally the placement of the dentures. Implant-supported dentures are ideal for those who want a more natural option for replacement teeth that requires less care and are willing and able to go through a minor surgery for a more long-term solution.
Dental veneers are thin layers of porcelain material that are placed over the surface of existing teeth to improve the appearance of the patient, along with providing other functional and oral health benefits. Here at our cosmetic dentist office, we offer dental veneers for patients who have minor imperfections in their teeth they wish to improve. Treatment offers various benefits, including the following:
- Brightens stained teeth
- Covers chips and cracks
- Fills in gaps between teeth
- Lengthens short teeth
- Straightens misalignments
Anyone who struggles with a less than ideal appearance of their smile due to teeth staining, chips, cracks, gaps between teeth or mild misalignments might be an ideal candidate for dental veneers treatment from a cosmetic dentist. Dental veneers are non-invasive, and the treatment process is short and does not cause much if any, discomfort. Each dental veneer is customized by our cosmetic dentist team specifically for the natural tooth on which it is placed.
The process is simple, and it starts with scheduling an initial consultation at our cosmetic dental office, during which we can explain how veneers might be beneficial and help the patient make an informed decision. We then start the veneers customization process, and the veneers are placed on the follow-up visit.
A smile makeover is a set of cosmetic dental procedures performed to improve the overall appearance of a patient’s smile. Here at our cosmetic dentist office, we offer personalized smile makeovers and tailor the treatments based on the patient’s needs and preferences. The benefits of a smile makeover include the following:
- Improved appearance
- Increased confidence
- Better oral health
- Improved function
- Personalized treatment
A better smile through fixing imperfections with teeth helps individuals appear more attractive to others, which helps with relationships, in a professional setting and in various other areas. Many also feel better about themselves after a smile makeover and are more confident and willing to pursue social interactions and do the things they love. A smile makeover is not purely cosmetic, and it may also improve oral health by reducing the risk of cavities, oral infection, etc.,
As mentioned, each smile makeover procedure is specifically designed for the patient after discussing treatment goals with the cosmetic dentist. A smile makeover may include but not be limited to teeth whitening, teeth replacement, improving imperfections in teeth(chips, cracks, etc.) and teeth alignment.
