Dental Implants

‘Growing’ New Teeth
Dental implants are the solution to recapture a full and beautiful smile. The implant is placed under the gumline, making the crown appear as if it comes up through the gums, just like a natural tooth. Implants can replace as many teeth as are missing, and will provide the stability and full functionality required to chew all types of food. Even those with all teeth missing will benefit from implants, as their dentures can be secured properly and permanently. First, an oral surgeon inserts the titanium post, and then Dr. Kava creates and places the tooth-like restoration.

Great Ways to Improve Your Smile # 6

Implants
Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth. Surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, they function as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth. Made of titanium and other materials, implants are designed to hold restorations like crowns or bridges blend in with your other teeth, and are a long-term option for restoring your smile.

Great Ways to Improve Your Smile # 5

Braces
While orthodontic work that begins while a child is growing helps produce optimal results, that doesn’t mean that adults can’t have braces. Thanks to advances in orthodontic treatments, metal brackets are not your only option. Removable aligners, or invisible braces,î or clear plastic brackets can all be used to straighten crooked or crowded teeth.

Great Ways to Improve Your Smile # 4

Bonding
Not happy with the way your teeth look? Bonding may be the answer. For some, it can help restore the natural look of your teeth. Bonding is a process where the dentist attaches or “bonds” materials directly to your tooth. Your natural tooth enamel and dentin are fused together with bonding materials such as porcelain and resins to create a strong structure that looks great.
