In today’s article we will concentrate on three innovative procedures used in smile transformations.
1. Tooth Implants
Tooth implants are changing the face of dentistry. For most patients, a dental implant is the optimal solution for a missing tooth. A dental implant is a metal (usually titanium) rod implanted into the bone to replace the missing root of a tooth that has been extracted. The crown and supporting structure are securely attached to the post.
When the final crown is attached, the dental implant is indistinguishable from a natural tooth. Dental implants have many vital advantages over dental bridges. If you are missing teeth, schedule a consultation with Dr. Rice to learn more.
2. Invisible Braces
Invisible braces allow you to straighten your teeth discreetly because it is nearly impossible to see them while they are being worn. There are a couple of different brands of invisible braces including Damon Braces and Invisalign clear aligners.
3. White Fillings
If you had dental cavities in the past, you may have old amalgam fillings. White fillings match your surrounding teeth, significantly improving your smile without crowns.
