A Durable Solution for Your Smile

A missing tooth can change the way you feel about your smile. If you are missing a tooth, you're not alone. Did you know more than 170 million Americans are missing at least one tooth? However, you don't have to live with gaps in your smile! There are several options available for replacing a missing tooth. One of those options is dental implants. Implants can provide a durable solution for your smile and can last for years to come with proper care. Many patients have already experienced dental implants and are now reaping the benefits!

A dental implant, when completed, is made to look and feel just like a natural tooth. A dental implant is made up of 3 parts –the anchor, abutment, and dental crown. The anchor is placed first and acts as the root of the tooth. The abutment is then attached to the anchor, providing a place for the dental crown to be attached. The final step is the placement of the dental crown, which is color-matched and custom-made to blend in naturally with your existing smile. This 3-step process takes some time, but the results are worth it! The end result provides a lasting solution for your missing tooth.
