Dental Implants And Smile Makeovers

smile makeovers Salt Lake City

What makes an attractive smile? White teeth? Uniformly-shaped teeth? Straight teeth? At The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City, we agree that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Even so, one or more missing teeth can really detract from anyone’s smile. But with dental implants, it’s a problem that can be remedied.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw. A single implant can support a single artificial tooth. A group of implants can support a set of dentures. The results of implant dentistry have been so effective that they’ve been called one of the biggest advances in the history of dentistry.

The most importan thing about dental implants is that they look and function like natural teeth. The titanium post fuses with the jaw bone to provide a solid support for the artificial tooth. Since they go where the root used to be, they act as a substitute and can actually prevent bone recession.

As for implant-supported dentures, the denture has special attachments that connect directly to the implants. They are far sturdier than conventional dentures, which rests on the gums. Implants can support dentures on the upper and lower jaw.

You might say that restoring teeth to your jaw may be the ultimate smile makeover. To find out more about single dental implants and implant-supported dentures and bridges, call The Sugar House Dentist to schedule an appointment.
