Over time, our smiles change and may begin lose their youthful appearance. Skyview Family and Cosmetic Dental believe implants are one of the many ways to restore a youthful smile and confidence.
Whether teeth are lost to an accident, disease or have been missing since birth, dental implants are the next best thing to natural teeth. The first thing most people notice about dental implants is how closely it resembles your natural tooth. To avoid complications caused by a missing tooth, such as shifting of teeth or degrading jaw bones, an implant is the best solution. Unlike a dental bridge or a crown, dental implants are fused into the jaw bone by surgically affixing a metal implant within it. The implant, which is rooted in the bone, acts as a strong base for a dental crown or bridge, which is attached to the implant by an abutment. In time, the gums and bones start to rebuild, helping to hold the implant firmly in place. Dental implant crowns and bridges are custom coloured and shaped to replicate that of your surrounding teeth, with aims to give the implant a more natural look.
