Get Your Smile Back with Dental Implants
- Posted on: May 13 2014
Having missing teeth may not just be something you’d like to fix because of how they look and make you feel. Missing teeth may be a sign of potentially serious dental health risks. The trained team at Galleria Dental Aesthetics can help those in the McLean area with dental implants to address these risks.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are used to replace lost teeth and restore a beautiful mouth of teeth. Dental implants are made up of three parts including:
- A root made of titanium
- A small abutment placed on top of the root implant
- A porcelain crown that will serve as the new tooth
Our experienced team will use advanced imaging technology to determine where exactly to place all parts of the dental implants.
The titanium root will be implanted into the bone socket of your missing tooth. This will eventually fuse with your bone structure and integrate into your jaw. After what may be a three to six month period of healing, we will place the custom-made porcelain crown to match your smile. Porcelain is used in dental implants because it reflects light in many of the same ways that natural teeth do, so they look realistic.
