So you’ve lost some teeth and now are unwilling to smile because of the gaps. If only you could go back in time and reclaim that full-toothed smile you once had. Guess what? You can with dental implants from William J. Stewart Jr. DDS Advanced Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in San Antonio.
For most patients, a tooth implant is the perfect replacement for both the root and crown of a tooth. They feel so real that implant recipients forget that they ever lost a tooth in the first place.
A tooth implant is anchored into the jawbone with a strong metal post. It doesn’t move around like dentures, and unlike a dental bridge, it guards healthy jawbone and prevents bone recession. After the post is completely enmeshed with the jawbone, the supporting device (called an abutment) and beautiful crown are firmly attached to the post. Some patients are able to undergo all three parts of the procedure at once.
Our team offers a variety of options when it comes to replacing missing or broken teeth. None are as effective and durable as dental implants. If you’ve lost several teeth, you may be a good candidate for implant-anchored dentures. Talk to us to learn more.
Another way to go back in time is to whiten your teeth to the bright color they were when you were a teenager. There are several different types of tooth whitening systems, from same-day procedures to at-home treatments. Again, speak with our team about your goals and budget.
Have you ever wished your smile looked like it did before you had any tooth decay? (Many of us can’t remember that far back!) Talk to us about tooth-colored fillings. White fillings match your teeth, and dramatically improve your smile without crowns.
