Summertime is a great time to make memories and enjoy good food. Unfortunately, your ability to do comfortably do both of these things can be hampered if you’re ashamed of the way your smile looks. Teeth whitening is a quick and easy way to make your smile brighter and more attractive, but what can you do if you have gaps from missing teeth? Dental implants may be exactly what you need to get that picnic-ready smile you’ve been longing for this summer.

Dental Implant Benefits

When it comes to cosmetic dentistry procedures, implants boast a variety of unique benefits. Some of the most notable include:

• Jaw bone support
• Improved self-confidence
• Natural appearance
• Long-term results

Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that can provide jaw bone support. Normally, the jaw bone begins to degrade after a tooth is lost. Dental implants can prevent this from happening by continuously stimulating the jaw bone. Implants can also boost self-confidence by improving the aesthetic appearance of the smile. Once they heal, implants are so natural-looking that no one would ever guess you have them. They are also known to deliver long-term results and are a preferred option for permanent tooth replacement.

Dental Implant Placement Process

Implants are generally composed of three parts: the post, the abutment and the crown. The post is placed in the jaw first and becomes fused to the bone while the treatment site heals. Then, the abutment is attached to the top of the post and a porcelain crown is attached to the abutment. The end result is a beautiful, restored smile that looks and feels natural.
