Are you insecure about your smile? If you suffer from missing or damaged teeth, or if your smile is crooked or discolored, it can impact your confidence and how you interact with others.
It’s well-known that dental implants offer significant and long-lasting oral health benefits, and restoring your oral health is the first step to achieving a beautiful smile. However, the cosmetic benefits of dental implants are equally impressive. In fact, few outpatient procedures can transform a person’s appearance as quickly or as beautifully as dental implant treatment.
When paired with other cosmetic dental treatments like teeth whitening, straightening, or gum reshaping, dental implants can completely transform your appearance!
What are dental implants?
Designed to permanently treat missing or damaged teeth, dental implants are the gold standard in restorative dentistry. The procedure is performed by embedding a small titanium screw into the jawbone. Functioning like a real tooth root, the implant is then used to support a custom tooth prosthetic.
Many patients are surprised to learn that missing teeth can actually contribute to a number of oral health issues, including crooked teeth, further tooth loss, changes in facial appearance, gum disease, and much more. Even the most severe cases can be treated with the right approach and a trusted dental implant specialist.
Adequate gum tissue and bone health are essential to avoiding implant failure. If you’re not currently a good candidate for dental implants, don’t worry! We’ll evaluate your current smile and help you develop a plan to get there. Smart Arches even offers bone grafting treatment to increase jawbone strength and set the stage for a successful implant.
Cosmetic benefits of dental implants
The cosmetic advantages of dental implants are clear. Missing or damaged teeth can affect the look of your smile and take a toll on your self-image. Dental implants provide the cosmetic restoration you deserve, allowing you to smile, laugh, and move through life with confidence.
Unlike removable dentures, dental implants are permanent, meaning they’ll never shift or fall out and they can even last your entire life with proper maintenance. They also look just like real teeth! Each tooth replacement is custom-made to match the shape, color, and size of your surrounding teeth.
In addition to fixing gaps in your smile, dental implants actually help preserve the appearance of facial structures by providing much-needed support for the jawbone. With the All-on-4 method, we can use just a few implants to replace one or both arches of teeth.
Other cosmetic dental treatments
A dental crown is a tooth-like cap that is often used in the final step of dental implant treatment. Crowns can also be used independently to restore a decayed, broken, or worn-down tooth. These restorations are custom-made to seamlessly blend with the rest of your smile!
As the name suggests, this restoration is designed to “bridge the gap” in your smile. A traditional dental bridge connects two natural teeth together with crowns on both ends and artificial teeth in between them. Implant-supported bridges work in the same way, but the prosthetic is supported on either side by dental implants as opposed to natural teeth.
Just about everyone wants a whiter, more radiant smile. So it’s no wonder that teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures around. Professional, in-office teeth whitening before your dental implant treatment can remove years of stains and discoloration, giving you a bright and even set of pearly whites.
The shape and length of your gum line can have a major impact on the appearance of your teeth and the rest of your face. Whether you want to correct a gummy smile with a gum lift or have gum grafting done to fix receding gums, gum shaping can be performed alongside dental implant treatment to improve the look of your smile.
Straight teeth are a highly coveted feature for a reason. Not only do they look beautiful, but they also contribute to your oral health. Whether you opt for traditional braces or modern clear aligners, you’re sure to enjoy the cosmetic benefits of straightening crooked or misaligned teeth.
Dental bonding is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that improves the appearance of your smile using a tooth-colored composite resin material. Bonding can be used strategically on natural teeth or prosthetics to correct discoloration and other surface-level cosmetic concerns.
