Dental implants are an effective cosmetic dentistry procedure designed to replace an entire tooth–roots and all. Many patients overlook implants as an option for cosmetic dentistry, as crowns and veneers seem easier (after all, they don’t have screws placed into your jaw). However, dental implants offer many benefits that other cosmetic procedures do not. Here are a few reasons to talk to your dentist about dental implants.

Natural Appearance and Feel: Implants are designed to look and act just like your natural teeth. This will help you feel confident and healthy again, making it easier to eat, speak, and smile.

Complete Restoration of the Tooth: while other cosmetic dental procedures are wonderful and can help a lot with various smile restoration needs, an implant does something more: it restores the full function and look of natural teeth, including the root. The connection between the implant and the jaw bone will grow stronger over time, helping to prevent bone loss.

Long-Lasting Restoration: With the proper care–brushing twice a day for two minutes, flossing once a day and keeping your mouth clean–implants can last a lifetime. This could be even longer than some of your other natural teeth!
