Dental Implants

Diamond Smiles provides state-of-the-art Dental Implants, a contemporary and effective method for replacing missing teeth. This procedure involves the surgical placement of small titanium posts into your jawbone, essentially serving as artificial tooth roots. These posts establish a sturdy base for securely attaching replacement teeth, including crowns, bridges, or dentures.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots, usually constructed from titanium, that are surgically inserted into the jawbone. They serve as a robust anchor for replacement teeth, which can include crowns, bridges, or dentures. Dental implants are a contemporary and efficient solution for individuals with missing teeth, offering a natural appearance and function, lasting durability, and the added benefit of maintaining jawbone health.

This procedure helps stimulate bone growth, preventing bone loss and preserving the natural structure of the face, ultimately providing a reliable means to restore a complete and confident smile.

Why it's done

Dental implants are performed to replace missing teeth and offer a durable, natural-looking solution. They restore functionality for eating and speaking, provide long-lasting results, and help preserve jawbone health.

Dental implants closely resemble real teeth, blend seamlessly with your natural ones, and offer stability without the need for removal or adhesives.

This permanence and aesthetic appeal can enhance your self-confidence and overall quality of life.
