What are dental implants?
Dental implants replace your missing teeth and their roots. Implants accomplish this important process via a procedure which places the implant’s fixture, a small, titanium post, directly into the jawbone beneath a missing tooth. This gives the bone the opportunity to grow around the fixture, securing it permanently and effectively into place. The fixture then provides a strong foundation for a lifelike porcelain replacement tooth.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment which uses a more subtle way of moving the teeth into their correct positions than traditional metal braces. Similarly to traditional braces, Invisalign uses pressure placed onto the teeth to move them. However, rather than the metal brackets and wires reserved for metal braces, Invisalign patients wear a series of clear plastic aligner trays during treatment. This allows for a subtle and effective treatment without compromising your look.
What are veneers?
Patients who opt for veneers usually wish to change the shape, length, width or color of their teeth. Veneers are a porcelain shell which fits over the front of the tooth to change its appearance. Veneers can subtly repair a chipped tooth or completely overhaul the entire look of a smile. This procedure takes only a handful of dental visits and provides a dramatic result.
These cosmetic dentistry procedures can work together to rejuvenate your smile and overhaul your look.
