When you look in the mirror, is something missing? If you have one or more missing or badly damaged teeth, dental implants from Adriana Torena, D.M.D., P.C. in Fairfield may be just right for you. Here's what you need to know.
Dental implants consist of three parts: the crown (which replaces a missing tooth), the implant (which secures the crown to the jaw bone) and the abutment (which holds the crown and the implant together). These three pieces are secured one on top of another in order to fill in any missing gaps you may have in your smile. The result is a beautiful, durable and completely natural looking smile that looks brand new.
Unlike removable dentures, dental implants from a Fairfield dentist like Dr. Torena can be used to replace any number of teeth, from one to a whole mouthful. For multiple missing teeth, the dental implants would simply be connected to a bridge or denture instead of a single crown.
Since they are custom made in a lab according to the exact specifications your Fairfield dentist orders, dental implants are also highly customizable. Your dentist can order implants that are skinny or wide, short or long, bright white or faded. This ensures that the look you end up with is perfectly suited for your unique smile. While your friends and family are sure to notice and love the new look, any time you meet new people, they'll have no idea your teeth aren't your own.
Whether you have a small gap from one missing tooth or several large gaps from several missing teeth, the best way to restore your beautiful smile once again is through a visit to Dr. Torena in Fairfield. Call and schedule an appointment today to find out if dental implants are right for you. You won't believe how amazing your smile will look.
