At Melbourne Smile Studio we are able to perform dental implants to replace missing, damaged, or unhealthy teeth.
Dental implants are great replacements for missing teeth. In terms of their appearance, form and function, they most closely simulate the appearance of your natural teeth, and this makes it very difficult to distinguish them from the real ones.
People who have missing tooth may affect his/her level of confidence thus a feeling of excessively self-consciousness to smile or talk might occur. And these are the rationales why this procedure is considered one of the most brilliant breakthroughs in prosthetic and cosmetic dentistry.
BENEFITS OF DENTAL IMPLANTS
Aesthetic – Dental implants are unnoticeable, you yourself might even forget that you have a dental implant as it functions like your own real tooth.
Tooth-Saving – Since dental implants are inserted into the structure of your bone, and don’t require involvement of the teeth on either side of the missing tooth/teeth they are ideal in patients whose other teeth are relatively unfilled, as it means we can preserve the structure of those remaining teeth. Porcelain bridges, which are another tooth replacement option involve preparing the teeth on either side of the missing teeth.
Confidence booster – Dental implants are very similar with your real teeth in terms of its function and appearance. It will let you once again smile with confidence and eat the foods you love with maximum comfort.
Reliable – The success rate of this procedure is indeed very high. As of the moment, dental implants are the best option for replacing missing teeth.
