From dental veneers to crowns, it’s easy to overlook implants as an option for replacing any missing or broken teeth in your smile. After all, crowns and veneers don’t require screws inserted into your gums, right?

While that may be true, implants offer some features that other – while still great – cosmetic dentistry procedures don’t. So let’s look at why you may choose to have Dr. Tammeka Nickleberry install dental implants in your smile.

Completely restores a tooth

While other tooth restoration options are great, and certainly have their place in dental treatment, one of the biggest advantages to implants is that they completely restore the appearance and function of your natural teeth. Especially if the tooth can’t be saved with a root canal, an implant may be your best bet.

Looks and feels real

The only person who can tell your implants aren’t real teeth will be your dentist. Everyone else will see them as real teeth, and you’ll feel comfortable again in photos and in front of everyone else in your life.

Last as long as real teeth

The other great thing about implants is that, if you follow basic oral health habits, your implants will last as long as you do. In fact, they may last longer than your real teeth, depending on the health of your other real teeth.

If you think that implants may be the best route to take for your tooth restoration needs, please contact us today at (713) 723-2600 to schedule a consultation appointment.
