Dental implants offer a permanent solution to missing teeth
At Just Smile in Ramsgate, we offer dental implants as part of our cosmetic dentistry options. Despite its name, cosmetic dentistry is not only about improving the aesthetics of your smile. Cosmetic dentistry also includes procedures such as dental implants, crowns and bridges and fillings; these three treatments are just as important for the health and function of your smile as they are for aesthetics.
The complete range of cosmetic dentistry treatments available at Just Smile include:
- Dental implants
- Veneers: veneers are thin porcelain shells that are custom design to fit on the surface of your teeth. Veneers are a great cosmetic option to repair chipped or cracked teeth and protect the surface of a damaged tooth.
- Crowns and bridges
- Tooth whitening: at Just Smile in Ramsgate we use ZOOM! Tooth Whitening, one of the most popular and successful professional tooth whitening systems available.
- Tooth coloured fillings: unlike tradition amalgam fillings, tooth coloured fillings are stronger and healthier for your teeth: unlike amalgam fillings, tooth coloured fillings complete seal the filling preventing bacteria from causing further decay underneath the restoration.
- Inlays and Onlays: if a tooth coloured filling is not enough to solve the problem we have Inlays and Onlays to effectively restore broken or decayed teeth. In terms of strength Inlays and Onlays are somewhere between a tooth coloured filling and a dental crown—an Inlay or Onlay does not cover as much tooth as a crown (which covers the whole tooth) but provides more support than a dental filling.
Look after the function and appearance of your smile with dental implants…
Dental implants are one of the most popular dental treatments at the moment. The technology available makes performing the implant procedure much more accurate and therefore increasing the success rate of the treatment. On top of this, the titanium alloy that the screw is made of is biocompatible meaning the chance of infection or of your body rejecting the titanium screw is very small.
The dental implant procedure offered at Just Smile uses the NobelGuide System to aid our highly skilled dentists to safely and effectively insert the dental implant and the crown—making for faster recovery time.
Dental implants vs. dentures…
It should come as no surprise that with the advances in medical science many patients want to avoid removable dentures because of the embarrassment they cause whereas dental implants are surgically inserted into the jaw creating a strong artificial tooth root that—if look after properly—can last a lifetime. The added benefit of a dental implant is that the crown or bridge that is attached is made of sturdy, high-quality porcelain material that, if a healthy oral hygiene regime is maintained, can last for at least ten years.
Why dental implants are the best solution for missing teeth…
As has been said, dental implants are made of a titanium alloy that is biocompatible allowing for a more effective fusing of implant and bone. when the implant has fused with the bone and healed it provides a strong permanent tooth root that helps maintain a healthy bite and jaw—the crown that is attached to the implant that acts as an artificial tooth can last up to at least ten years.
