Are One-Day Dental Implants a Good Idea?
- Posted on: Mar 14 2011
In our fast-moving, convenience-driven economy, people often forget that doing something right often takes time. At Galleria Dental Aesthetics, we don’t rush your dental implant procedure. We pride ourselves on providing functionally superior tooth replacements that blend aesthetically with your smile. Therefore, we do not offer one-day dental implants.
The dental implant procedure requires time to ensure every piece is secure and aesthetically pleasing. Our doctors want to provide you with a long-lasting, natural-looking tooth replacement, not just a quick fix.
Dental Implant Procedure
The procedure for dental implants can take several months because the implant anchor needs to become a part of your jaw, and this process cannot be rushed. The only way to ensure a secure hold for the root of your new tooth is to let it become integrated with your jaw bone. This can take anywhere from three to six months, but will ultimately ensure a strong, permanent root for your new tooth.
After your jaw has accepted the implant, we will customize and place a porcelain crown over the implant to act as your new tooth. This porcelain crown is carefully colored and shaped to blend naturally with your adjacent teeth in order to ensure a seamless, natural looking smile. This process also requires time. A replacement tooth that is not painstakingly customized may stand out in your smile almost as badly as the gap from the missing tooth.
Taking time to make sure your replacement tooth is both strong and aesthetically perfect is important to us. One-day dental implants may be tempting, but when your implant dentist takes the time to get every step right, the beneficial results can last a lifetime.
If you live in or around Tysons Corner or McLean, Virginia and are interested in learning more about dental implants, please contact the cosmetic dentists at Galleria Dental Aesthetics to schedule an initial consultation.
