Dental Implants To Improve Your Smile
If you’re self-conscious about your smile because you are missing a tooth or a few teeth, then consider having a dental implant. Windsor Hills Family Dentistry can provide you with a healthy looking smile. We’ll provide you with an implant tooth that looks and functions the same as all your other teeth.
For over 35 years we’ve been offering cosmetic dental services to patients in the Dubuque area, helping them to have a natural looking smile.
Dental implants are designed to replace a missing tooth or teeth in a way that they blend in with your other teeth. They are also designed to be a long term solution thanks to major advances in dentistry over the years.
Missing teeth are more than just a nuisance, they can also affect your jawbone. They can lead to a deterioration of the jawbone, which could further effect your appearance. Bridges or dentures can’t provide the stability that a dental implant can.
How The Process Works
We begin by evaluating the damaged or missing tooth.
Implants are surgically placed in either your upper or lower jaw and serve as the anchor for your replacement tooth. A crown is then fashioned from porcelain to fit into your mouth and blend in naturally with your other teeth.
If you’re replacing more than one tooth, then it might be necessary to install dentures or a bridge using the implant. This allows for bridges and dentures to fit snugly and securely in your mouth.
Once the work is completed, you’ll soon forget you even have a dental implant. It will look and feel the same as the rest of your teeth and you’ll be able to eat what you want. Dental implants are designed to last and if properly taken care of may last as long as your natural teeth.
