Implant Smiles treatment is designed to allow patients suffering tooth loss to restore their incomplete smiles. We have seen first-hand how truly transformative this type of treatment can be. Keep reading to learn more about how and why our Saint Louis dental implant dentists customize replacement teeth down to the smallest details.

There are a number of tooth replacement options available to you today. You may choose to replace individual teeth with stand-alone dental implants; these replacement teeth are permanently anchored in the patient’s jawbone with a titanium root. You could alternatively decide to go with traditional dentures and bridges. We can even use dental implant roots to anchor dentures and bridges into the patient’s smile.

When you come in for an assessment with our team, we’ll take a look at the health of your smile and the extent of your tooth loss. We’ll also check on your jawbone density; it’s crucial that your jawbone be healthy if you’re going to move forward with dental implant treatment.

Once we decide what type of replacement tooth is right for you, we’ll:

  • Ensure that your replacement teeth are shaded to match your existing dental enamel. If you want to lighten your natural teeth, it’s best to do this before we place your replacement teeth.
  • Shape your replacement teeth to mimic your existing teeth, whether they be more angular or rounder
  • Refine your replacement teeth, so that you’re able to maintain healthy and even bite surfaces. Poorly designed and placed replacement teeth can through an entire smile out of balance.

The best way to get started is to contact our Saint Louis Implant Smiles dentists to schedule a consultation. We know that undergoing dental treatment can be stressful for some patients, but we’re here to guide you through the entire treatment process.
