Implant Dentistry

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are posts made from metal which are positioned into the jawbone below the gumline during a surgical procedure.

Once the posts are in place, your dentist is able to mount replacement teeth onto the post.

Implants are designed in such a way that allows them to fuse to your jawbone as you heal. This ensures stable support for artificial teeth.

Unlike traditional dentures, bridges, individual crowns and dentures that are secured to implants will not move around or out of the mouth.

This secure placement results in the implants feeling more natural than their more conventional counterparts.

What’s important to remember is that in order to receive dental implants, you need to have adequate bone to support the implant and your gums need to be healthy.

Once fitted with implants, high levels of oral hygiene and regular visits to your dentist are crucial to make sure your implants last forever.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Also known as aesthetic dentistry, cosmetic dentistry refers to dental procedures aimed purely at enhancing the visual appeal of the teeth.

Whether you have had an injury or illness that has compromised the shape, colour or size of your teeth or you simply dream of having the perfect smile, cosmetic dentistry is what you need.

Reasons for Cosmetic dentistry

These are some of the most common reasons people opt for cosmetic dentistry:

  • To improve position of teeth
  • To whiten discoloured or stained teeth
  • Gap reduction
  • Length adjustment
  • To evenly shape the teeth
  • Gum reduction
  • If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile because of skew teeth

Whatever the reason may be, choosing cosmetic dentistry can significantly boost self-confidence. There is a large number of people who suffer from insecurities related to an imperfect smile..
