4 Reasons to Consider Getting Dental Implants

Are getting dental implants really any better than tooth replacement options like dentures or bridges? Depending on your situation, they can be. Implants are unlike any other type of tooth replacement that’s available.

The one of a kind treatment can be a huge asset to both your smile and your health. Here are four reasons why:

Does Getting Dental Implants Rely on Other Teeth?

Conventional tooth replacements like bridges require that you drill down neighboring teeth to anchor a restoration over them. If your teeth are healthy, this can seem a bit extreme. Implants stand independently of other teeth, allowing you to maximize your oral health.

Do Dental Implants Last for Life

Studies indicate that there is a 98% success rate for dental implants, making them the most predictable treatment in all of modern dentistry. If you’re committed to caring for them and keeping them clean, you can expect most implants to last for an entire lifetime. All you’ll need to do is change out their restoration (such as a crown or denture) if it ever starts to wear out.

Replace as Many Teeth as You Need to?

Due to their integrity, you can replace all of your upper or lower teeth on as few as four implants. Or, use individual implants to replace one tooth at a time. Titanium implants are considered to be stronger than even the healthiest teeth when there’s proper bone support around them.

Are Getting Dental Implants a Painful Process

Most people feel a bit anxious when they’re learning about implants. The biggest fear tends to be related to the pain involved. You’ll be surprised to learn that most people feel that getting dental implants is far easier than having a tooth pulled!

Dental Veneers Offer Amazing Results

If you’ve been considering a smile makeover, dental veneers may be one of the very first things that you talk to your dentist about. Unlike other types of cosmetic treatment, veneers offer the most drastic approach to changing how your teeth look.

Here’s why: 

They Cover What’s Visible

Unlike a full coverage crown, veneers only cover the front-side of your tooth (not the entire thing.) This allows you to leave your healthy tooth intact, while still changing the way it looks when you talk or smile.

Depending on how wide your smile is, your dentist may recommend placing veneers across both top and bottom teeth, and as wide as what others see. Most people wind up having at least six veneers across the top teeth, but sometimes eight or more (especially if you smile like Julia Roberts.)

You Can Hide a Multitude of Sins

There’s no stain too dark or tooth too uneven when it comes to recreating what you want your smile to look like. Veneers are perfect for masking aesthetic irregularities such as teeth that are:

  • Crooked
  • Crowded
  • Gapped
  • Chipped
  • Worn
  • Uneven
  • Stained
  • Misshaped

The Results are Drastic

In just two or three appointments, you can have an entirely new smile. From the consultation to the preparation, and then the final delivery – once you look in the mirror, you won’t believe what you see.

Design it Yourself

What do you want your new smile to look like? Are you looking for teeth that look whiter, longer, or straighter? Do you have a preference of specific shape or color? Your dentist will help you pinpoint the exact characteristics that you’re striving for.

Are you ready to invest in improved self-confidence and the freedom to smile without embarrassment? Ask your dentist if veneers are right for you!
