Implants? Crowns? Veneers? Invisible braces? As dental technology and services have expanded in the Lone Tree area, so has the vocabulary. Dentistry has advanced to provide many new solutions that address almost every possible dental issue.
Dr. Almeida, considered one of the best dentists in Colorado, has expertise with cosmetic and ideal restorative services.
In the past, if a patient in Lone Tree had a missing tooth or a severely damaged tooth, Colorado dentists regularly suggested dental bridges or dentures, because they were the best options at the time. These days, industry-leading dental implants have proven to be superior to dental bridges for most Denver patients. They can also replace dentures or anchor dentures for some patients.
A tooth implant provides many essential advantages over a dental bridge or dentures:
Longevity – Dental implants are tough and permanent, meaning with proper care they can last ten years or more.
Seamless – Fabricated to have the same shape, size and color of the original tooth, the implant will blend seamlessly with all the other teeth. If the original tooth had aesthetic troubles, these can usually be corrected with the implant crown.
Function – A dental implant functions like a natural tooth allowing for normal eating and speaking.
Convenience – Unlike dentures, no adhesives, rinsing, or removal is required.
Independent – Like the missing tooth, the dental implant is treated individually. No damaging of adjacent teeth is required, as with dental bridges. This independence allows nearby teeth to remain intact. Cleaning is easier than with most dental bridges which can require the threading of floss under and around the artificial tooth.
Let’s consider the tooth implant method:
If you are interested in getting a tooth implant, call Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center at 303-858-9000 to schedule a tooth implant consultation. Dr. Almeida practices in the greater Denver area from Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center in Lone Tree. Dr. Almeida will carry out an exam, take x-rays and advise with you. If it is determined that you are a good candidate for the procedure, the process will begin.
Plaster dental impressions of both upper and lower plates will be taken. Dr. Almeida will precisely place the titanium implant, which looks like a dark screw, into the bone of your jaw. Over the next couple of months, the bone and implant will bond together to form a new root for your new tooth.
After the required time has passed for bonding of the bone and implant, an extension (called an abutment) is placed on top of the initial implant post. This post extension is then capped with a temporary tooth. Meanwhile, the team of professionals at our lab will tailor your new, permanent crown.
Dr. Almeida will then put the attractive permanent crown on top of the full post. This tooth will match your other teeth to create a fantastic new smile. You will find that the comfort is the same as your natural teeth, to the point that you may even forget which tooth is the implant. The upkeep is the same, with brushing, flossing, and regular check-ups needed.
If you want to determine if a tooth implant is right for you or desire information about cosmetic dental smile makeovers, call Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center for more details. We look forward to meeting you!
