Do you find yourself actively hiding your smile because of a missing tooth? A missing tooth can make you lose confidence in your appearance. If you feel self-conscious about your smile because of a missing tooth, visit Dr. Bigelow at his Salt Lake City dental practice. He offers innovative dental implants to restore your missing teeth. You shouldn’t have to cover up your smile anymore! Dental implants can give you a full and complete grin again.
Dental implants are an incredible restorative dental procedure that can replace missing teeth. Unlike other restorative dentistry options, dental implants mimic not only the appearance, but the function of a natural tooth.
Dental implants consist of three parts: a titanium post, a crown, and an abutment that connects the post and crown together. The post acts like a tooth root, providing structure to the jawbone. The crown looks like a natural tooth, filling in the gaps in your smile. With its artificial tooth root and crown, dental implants are comparable to natural teeth.
Dr. Bigelow will make sure your dental implants blend in with your natural smile. The porcelain crown used for your dental implants will be customized to match the rest of your teeth. We can create a crown that will complement your natural teeth, regarding shape, size, and color. With dental implants, you can have a lovely, perfectly intact smile!
Your dental implants can also improve your overall oral health. Your jawbone uses your teeth as support. When you have missing teeth, your jawbone weakens because it has lost some of that support. Because dental implants act like a natural tooth root, they can prevent jawbone deterioration. Dental implants can also stop the surrounding teeth from shifting out of place.
Dental implants are usually considered the most effective way to replace missing teeth. They provide support, stability, and function to your smile all while enhancing your appearance.
