As dental implants become more and more popular, you will hear more and more reasons why they are a fantastic restoration for a missing tooth. For health and functional reasons, there’s no doubt that an implant is the best. What about the way an implant looks? We have some thoughts about the aesthetic advantages of an implant that you should consider before looking into any other dental restoration.
A Tooth That Looks Like a Tooth
Ultimately, you want your restoration to look like a natural tooth. We place a stunning crown on top of every single dental implant we place. The crown will be created to match the rest of your teeth perfectly so that when you smile, it looks like you never had work!
No Black Bridge Lines
One of the big downfalls of a dental bridge is that there are signs that a bridge is there. The most common sign is a black line along the gums. This is caused by the metal structure of most bridges. A dental implant leaves behind no evidence.
No Special Hardware
Finally, some restorations require special hardware that is often bonded to the backs of your teeth. Sometimes the hardware shows, leaving the patient uncomfortable with laughing or smiling. The one piece of hardware required for an implant is hidden beneath the gums.
