So, what are cosmetic dental implants?

Dental implants are an extremely effective and increasingly popular solution to replace lost teeth.

Dental implants are essentially artificial replacements for the lost root part of a tooth and are anchored in your jaw-bone using a pre-drilled socket. They are then able to support a crown, bridge or denture. We then place the outer surface of the implant in close contact with the jaw-bone to ensure they will begin to fuse together. This is called osseo-integration. This process is done to ensure long term stability to the crown.

Cosmetic Dental Implant Procedure

Dental implants are placed within the jaw bone and left to heal for usually 3-6 months. While the cosmetic dental implant fixture is healing a transitional dental bridge or teeth denture is used to close the space.  After satisfactory healing a precision post is placed into the cosmetic dental implant. Finally depending on your individual case a porcelain crown, dental bridge or cosmetic denture is placed onto the post.  And you have your new teeth and can smile with confidence.
