Has the look and function of your smile changed? Cosmeticdentists in Tysons Corner, VA artfully replace missing teeth and improve the look of remaining ones with a great “tool box” of aesthetic dental services–including dental implants.
No 2 smiles are exactly alike; so dental needs and wants differ. Some people would like their tooth color refreshed with professional teeth whitening. Others may have minor cosmetic defects that bonding or porcelain veneers may address. Adults and children can get a straight smile from Invisalign clear aligners and Incognito hidden braces.
For individuals with large gaps in their smiles, dental implants are an individualized tooth replacement solution. Your cosmetic dentist at Avanti Dentistry can rebuild your smile dental implants personalized just for you.
What is a dental implant?
Dentalimplants completely replace a tooth lost to decay, gum disease, or injury. Comprised of a bone-friendly titanium screw and abutment, plus ceramic crown, the implant is a permanent and strong artificial tooth that feels and looks like the real thing.
Increasing in popularity, dental implants are appropriate for patients of all ages with good oral health. Through imaging with Conebeam 3Dscan, Avanti Dentistry doctors formulate a treatment plan that accounts for the tooth, gum and bone structure of each patient.
Amazingly, dental implants can replace one or more teeth. They support fixed and removable dentures and are a versatile tool for reconstructing a mouth. They are often used in with other cosmetic procedures such as porcelain veneers to build a smile that is uniform and attractive.
How is an implant placed?
An implant procedure has 2 parts. First, the metal screw is placed into the jawbone. If bone is insufficient, the doctor may augment it with donor tissue. Then, after healing, an abutment or post is secured to the implant, and a porcelain crown glued on.
Crowns are created in the treatment area with CEREC technology. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. Using Computer-aided Design and Computer-aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM), the Avanti Dentistry doctor mills a beautiful and bright replacement tooth out of a block of quality porcelain.
So, from treatment plan to implant placement to crafting the crown, everything necessary for the implant process is done in-house. Your cosmetic dentist drives and supervises every aspect of your new smile.
