Dental implants are considered the cream of the crop when it comes to tooth replacements. Of course, many patients appreciate that dental implants are permanent and stable, so they never have to worry about cleaning dentures or having their teeth fall out while eating. Perhaps the most common reason why people choose dental implants is that they're customized to match each patient's unique smile.
Our Dental Implants Are Customized for Your Smile
Dental implants are custom-made, so they precisely fit your mouth, feel comfortable, and look natural. Some patients worry dental implants won't match their natural teeth, but they absolutely will! Dr. Kate Dolin and Dr. Adam Spriggs are highly accomplished in dental implant restoration and can ensure your dental implants look and feel exactly how you want. Our dentists at Clayton Smiles also partner with respected oral surgeons and periodontists in our area to complete your dental implants. You can rest assured knowing you'll have an entire team of experts creating your new and improved smile.
How We Ensure Your Dental Implant Looks and Feels Natural
The first step of the dental implant process is performing a comprehensive evaluation of your oral health and examination of your teeth, gums, and jaws. If our dentists determine you're a good candidate for dental implants, we refer you to a specialist who places the implant into the jawbone––which they'll do under local anesthesia, of course, to minimize discomfort.
Next, Dr. Kate and Dr. Adam collaborate with the specialist to monitor the healing process and ensure the implant is stable. Once the implant is established, our dentists restore it with a custom-made dental crown. Dr. Kate and Dr. Adam accomplish this by taking an impression of the implant and sending it to our dental lab partners, where a skilled technician creates the crown to match the precise shape, size, and shade of your natural teeth.
When creating custom crowns, we also consider the patient's facial features, so the crown looks natural and beautiful. You never have to worry about teeth that look "too perfect" or bulky for your mouth. If you're unhappy with the final crown, we are happy to remake it until you're in love with your smile. Once the final custom crown is complete, we attach it to the dental implant, and you're ready to share your new smile with the world.
