So you’ve lost some teeth and now are reluctant to smile because of the gaps. If only you could go back in time and take back that full-toothed smile you once had. Guess what? With dental implants from Koch Park Dental in Florissant, you can!
For most patients, a dental implant is the ideal replacement for both the root and crown of a tooth. They feel so natural that implant recipients forget they ever lost a tooth in the first place.
A dental implant is anchored into the jawbone with a durable metal post. It doesn’t slide around like dentures, and unlike a dental bridge, it protects healthy jawbone and prevents bone recession. After the post is totally enmeshed with the jawbone, the supporting device (called an abutment) and beautiful crown are firmly attached to the post. Some patients are able to undergo all three parts of the treatment at once.
If you’ve lost multiple teeth, you may be a good candidate for implant-anchored dentures.
Another way to go back in time is to lighten your teeth to the sparkling color they were when you were a teenager. There are several different types of tooth whitening systems, from same-day procedures to at-home treatments. Again, talk to Dr. Buchheit about your goals and budget.
Have you ever wished your smile looked like it did before you had any tooth decay? (Many of us can’t remember that far back!) Talk to us about tooth-colored fillings. White fillings match your teeth, and significantly improve your smile without crowns.
Perhaps you have chipped a tooth. We have numerous solutions to correct that trouble as well. Talk to us about your goals for your smile.
