In Buckinghamshire, dental implants play an important role in helping people have a great smile that lifts their confidence and helps them continue to use their teeth to full effect.
At Smile Design Dental, we believe that dental implants are the future of tooth replacement for everyone, and every year we see more people choosing dental implants in Buckinghamshire over other types of tooth replacement, such as bridges and dentures.
Why choose dental implants?
There are good reasons for the surge in popularity of dental implants in Buckinghamshire over the last decade or so. Firstly, dental implants replace the whole tooth, both crown and root, whereas dentures and bridges replace only the crown. This is an important distinction because we now know that without tooth roots in our jaws the bone does not receive the stimulation it needs to renew its cells and very quickly starts to lose density and size. It not only does not replace old cells, it actually starts to actively degenerate. Along with this, the gums also start to recede. Another benefit of having roots in the jaw is that, like terraced houses, our teeth rely on each other for support, and if there is no root in the jawbone, the neighbouring teeth can start to tip over into the gap.
So, when you replace your teeth with dental implants in Buckinghamshire, you are making sure that you retain that beautiful chiselled jawbone and are avoiding that collapsed sunken look that is so ageing.
If you have 1 or 2 missing teeth, having dental implants is a great way to replace them, and you can have a smile makeover at the same time. You may choose to get the rest of your teeth whitened, one of the world’s most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments. Whitening makes your teeth look younger. If you do decide to have whitening, you need to have it before you get implants, so that the porcelain of the implants is matched to your whiter teeth. Once in place, porcelain crowns cannot be whitened with whitening treatments. Your dentist at Smile Design Dental will be able to advise you on the order in which to have your smile makeover treatments, and will give a schedule detailing the order.Back to Blog
