Dental implants are changing the way people live! With dental implants, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life.
Today, modern dental health care has drastically reduced the number of people who will lose their teeth. And those people that are missing teeth are expecting more from any replacement.
In the majority of cases, the most satisfactory and permanent way to replace missing teeth is with the use of dental implants. Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth.
In many cases, the dentist will take models of your existing smile and have the laboratory technician, called a ceramist, build up what the final result will look like in wax. In some cases we will also build up a temporary plastic version of the possible result, which you can snap onto your teeth in the clinic. As well, we will sometimes take a digital or scanned photograph and enhance it on the computer to demonstrate what is possible. It really depends on the case and what we are correcting.
Aesthetic treatments, such as porcelain veneers, are only done after careful planning and consultation. Talk to one of our dentists and discuss what treatment might be right for you.
