Dental implants are designed to replace missing teeth and created to look, feel, and function like natural teeth. They are a good long-term solution because they are attached to your jawbone. Unlike removable dentures, dental implants will not affect neighboring healthy teeth or lead to bone loss in the jaw. If properly cared for, dental implants last a lifetime.
Implants are made of titanium metal that fuses with the jawbone and act as a substitute for roots of teeth. Small posts are then attached to the implant to provide an anchor. Implants require two procedures and other implants are able to be placed in a single visit. We will evaluate your individual situation at your initial consultation visit.
Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are attached to the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. Implants, on the other hand, replace the entire tooth. Crowns also encase the entire tooth, while veneers only cover the front surface of the tooth.
For the best results, it is important that you choose a dental implant expert who has the proper education, training and competence in implant dentistry.
