Dental Implant Crowns & Bridges
Dental implants look so life-like that only your dentist will know they’re not your natural teeth. Unlike bridges or removable dentures, which float on top of the gums, a dental implant begins under your gums just like your original tooth did. In fact, it’s almost like growing a new one! Implants can be used to replace any number of lost teeth. From the front of the mouth, where they are most visible, to the back, where they provide stability to chew, implants can help you achieve a striking and healthy smile. Even people with no teeth can benefit from implants, because they can replace their dentures with teeth that don’t move around when they talk and don’t need to be taken out at night.
