Knowing this and being keenly aware of the importance of high quality, functionally superior results, we work with a group of local specialists when doing dental implant procedures.
Our Bellevue cosmetic dentists only perform the restoration part of your dental implant procedure. They will have local specialists and oral surgeons install the implant. Our Cooley Smiles dentists find that working with specialists on such a complex procedure enables them to achieve the best functional and aesthetic results for your dental implant.
Questions for Your Implant Dentist
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is the process of placing a titanium screw which is secured directly in your jaw. We then place a dental crown on top of your implant to serve as a prosthetic tooth.
This dental implant process provides you with a durable and functional replacement for your missing tooth.
Our Cooley Smiles dentists will help you decide if you are an ideal candidate for dental implants. This procedure requires sufficient bone structure in your jaw to support the implant. If you and our Cooley Smiles dentists decide that you are not a suitable candidate for dental implants, they may recommend dental bridges as an alternative.
What to Expect From Implant Dentistry
Dental Implant Considerations
A missing a tooth may lead to the neighboring teeth shifting in order to fill the gap. Sometimes a loss of chewing ability occurs as your mouth adjusts pressure, placing a heavier burden on your other teeth. Function can continue to be an issue that demonstrates in your speech, causing you to speak less clearly and may also cause your jaw to collapse, resulting in further functional and aesthetic concerns.
Dental implants are an ideal solution for missing teeth. Since they become part of your jaw, they work to prevent jaw collapse. Your porcelain crowns are of the highest quality: we are able to match the color, shape, and size of your false tooth exactly with the natural teeth in your mouth. In this way, functionality is restored and cosmetic imperfections are alleviated, leaving you with a seamless, beautiful smile.
