Cosmetic Dentistry in Marietta
Having a bright, healthy smile is important to your confidence. Injury and damage to your teeth – including adult tooth loss – not only affects your physical health but also your mental wellbeing. At Atlanta Dentures in Marietta, Georgia, we specialize in cosmetic dental procedures to help you look and feel your best. Whether you’re in need of a cosmetic dentist due to a sudden injury, tooth decay, or tooth loss associated with aging, the team at Atlanta Dentures can help find a solution for you.
Cosmetic Dental Implants
Dental implants are another solution for replacing lost or damaged teeth, and they fulfill both cosmetic and functional purposes. Although an implant does not replace the ligament apparatus and cushion of a natural tooth, it is the closest artificial option to replacing a natural tooth. The health of the patient, oral cavity, adjacent teeth and bone as well as finances play an important role in determining practicality and prognosis of implants. Because dental implants do require surgery, not everyone is a good candidate.
For example, those already experiencing osteoporosis may be better suited for other cosmetic tooth replacement methods. The implant procedure involves fusing titanium to bone, and the entire process can take around six months (and many times, implants fail). Many of the same issues that lead to tooth loss can also lead to implant failures, such as smoking, a systemic disease like diabetes, poor oral hygiene, or poor diet. Implants are among the most expensive tooth replacement options, and they aren’t always covered by insurance.
For patients who aren’t good candidates for dental implants, dentures are an accessible and less expensive option for replacing one or more teeth. They’re durable, made just for you, and easy to clean and care for. Dentures can replace any number of missing teeth, making them a viable cosmetic solution whether you’re missing one or several teeth. Unlike dental implants, dentures are surprisingly budget-friendly and are covered by most insurance plans.
If your teeth are injured and you require an emergency extraction, we can provide you with temporary dentures, or partial dentures, so you won’t have to leave our office with obvious missing teeth. Temporary dentures look like your real teeth, and they serve as a placeholder until your gums are healed and ready to be fitted for your permanent dentures.
