Having a missing tooth affects more than your appearance. Many of our dental implant patients tell us of the difficulties they had eating and drinking before their procedure. Are you very careful of how you eat foods, worried about not biting in such a way that harms an exposed gum? Or are you less confident of your smile or ashamed to laugh without covering your mouth? Then you will definitely benefit from a dental implant procedure at Arrow Smile Dental. Dr. Rosales helps patients with missing teeth restore their smile with the latest dental technologies. A call to (626) 938-1236 could change your life.
Ceramic Dental Implants
Dentists use ceramic dental tooth molds that mimicked natural teeth. At Arrow Smile Dental we can produce these restorations in a single visit via CEREC technologies. However, one noticeable flaw in old implants is that the titanium base can often be seen through the ceramic. Because the ceramic is cut so thin and resembles natural tooth so well, it captures the titanium root’s color. The implant sometimes has a grayish or silver undertone.
Now there are ceramic bases that fix that problem. Back in 2007, the FDA approved metal free zirconia ceramic implants and they have improved significantly. They are extremely strong and their construction works against chipping or fracture. Patients can confidently bite, chew, and maintain their teeth without worry after the implant treatment.
Patients receiving a dental implant will only need an hour or two for the procedure. After the surgery, one can expect some mild bleeding with the gums heal around the implant. The procedure should always be performed by a licensed dentist. You can schedule an appointment with Arrow Smile Dental by calling (626) 938-1236 or filling out our online appointment form.
