If you’re missing one or more teeth, dental implants are a permanent, natural-looking solution that will restore your smile. Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care and they look and feel just like your natural teeth, making them a popular restorative option for many patients. Don’t let a missing tooth keep you from living a confident life. Call us today to see if dental implants from Brite Clean Smiles are the right option for you.
Dental implants consist of two elements: a small titanium post and a porcelain crown. Together, these prosthetic devices create a permanent replacement tooth. First, the post is inserted into the gum tissue where your missing tooth used to be. Once it heals, functions as an artificial root and supports the crown. The crown is attached to the post via an abutment. It’s designed to look and feel just like a natural tooth, for a seamless restoration.
If you’re interested in a dental implant, the first step is to set up a consultation with Dr. Girgis to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Since implants are permanent, patients must have healthy gums and adequate jaw bone to support the implant.
Dr. Girgis will begin the procedure by cleaning the area around your missing tooth. Then, he’ll make a small incision in the gum tissue and place the titanium post into your jaw. You’ll be given a temporary crown to wear until your gum is completely healed.
When the post has bonded permanently with the surrounding jaw and gum tissue, Dr. Girgis will replace the temporary crown with a custom-made, natural-looking porcelain crown. After this, you’ll leave our office with confidence and a new, improved smile!
