In today’s post, we will focus on three innovative procedures used in smile makeovers.
1. Tooth Implants
Tooth implants are changing the face of dentistry. For most patients, a dental implant is a proper solution for a missing tooth. A dental implant is a metal (usual titanium) rod implanted into the bone to replace the missing root of a tooth that has been extracted. The crown and supporting structure are securely attached to the post.
When the final crown is placed, the dental implant is indistinguishable from a natural tooth. Dental implants have many critical advantages over dental bridges. If you are missing teeth, schedule a consultation with Dr. Buchheit to learn more.
2. Invisible Braces
Invisible braces allow you to straighten your teeth discreetly because it is nearly impossible to see them while they are being worn. There are a couple of different brands of invisible braces including Damon Braces and Invisalign clear aligners.
3. White Fillings
If you had cavities in the past, you may have old amalgam fillings. White fillings match your surrounding teeth, significantly upgrading your smile without crowns.
