Cosmetic dental surgery in San Marcos, CA can give patients back their smile
Losing a tooth as an adult is not exciting like it is for children. Instead of being a milestone, it becomes a flaw in your smile. Many adults deal with tooth loss, whether from disease or trauma.
When faced with cosmetic dental restoration, patients have choices. Crowns, bridges, dentures, and dental implants are all viable options for patients wishing to restore functionality and the appearance of their smiles. For those who want the option that most closely functions and looks like natural teeth, we recommend dental implants.
Dental implants involve a cosmetic dental surgery that replaces the missing tooth root. The implant is placed into the bone of the jaw to support a crown, bridge, or denture. The procedure for placing the implant is fast. There are several advantages for dental implants, including:
- Long lasting. During the healing process, the implant fuses with the bone, allowing it to become fully integrated into the mouth.
- Supportive. Missing teeth are more than just unsightly. They can cause other teeth to shift, a drooping facial structure, and can even make daily oral hygiene more difficult. Implants allow the structure and placement of the teeth to remain intact.
- Natural looking. Implants are often topped with a crown, which are custom fabricated to look like your natural teeth. The crown can be made to be a precise match the shape and color of your teeth and will be virtually undetectable.
- Durable. The crowns that are affixed to the implant also have a strength and functionality that closely resembles natural teeth. This means you will be able to chew and speak normally.
