Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. They are designed to fuse with living bone and form a stable foundation for fixed bridges or removable dentures. This procedure requires adequate bone for a two-stage process, but results in long-standing success rates. Lauren Brownfield, DDS, MS completed her undergraduate training at the University of Texas and her doctorate and periodontal/dental implant residency at the University of Houston.

Teeth in One Visit

Teeth in a day (also known as All-on-4 or dental implant supported full arch restoration) is a permanent tooth replacement option for people who have lost all of their natural teeth. It can replace an upper or lower arch of teeth in just one surgical appointment and eliminates the need for bone grafting.

During the procedure, we administer anesthesia before removing your existing teeth and placing dental implants. We take X-rays and a 3D cone beam CT scan to evaluate your bone tissue and plan treatment. We also create a surgical guide that helps us place the implant at the optimal angle in your jaw.

We then place a temporary bridge or implant retained crowns on the same day as your implants Brownfield ME. Patients should follow a soft diet for six to eight weeks following surgery. Once the implant is fully healed, the final restoration will be attached to the implant. This will look more aesthetically appealing than the temporary bridge or implant retained crowns.

Teeth Whitening

Tooth implants are a great option for tooth replacement. However, they are not right for everyone. Candidates must be non-smokers with good oral health, including sufficient jawbone density and healthy gums. If you are missing one or more teeth, restoring them with an implant can help prevent bone loss and improve your appearance.

It is important to note that dental implants Brownfield ME do not respond to whitening treatments like regular teeth. This is because they are not made of enamel, but are composed of titanium, which does not react to hydrogen peroxide. In fact, aggressive whitening regimens may increase the risk of root exposure and pulpal damage.

Instead, a composite resin (the same material used for fillings) can be used to repair minor chips and defects, and can also diminish gaps between teeth. This treatment is more natural than a filling and offers the same aesthetic result without damaging underlying teeth. However, the results are not permanent and they will eventually require replacement.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are custom-made shells bonded to the front of your teeth. They improve color, provide a natural tooth shape, reduce gaps or hide chips, and help straighten crooked teeth. They can also hide stains caused by coffee, tea, or tobacco. The porcelain reflects light just like your natural teeth, and it is highly resistant to staining.

Veneers are not permanent, but if you take good care of them, they will last 10-15 years. They are not cheap, but you can consider them an investment. Your dentist will give you instructions on how to take care of your veneers, and they may be covered by some private health insurance funds.

A skilled cosmetic dentist will ensure that your veneers look natural and fit seamlessly with your teeth. If you have a lot of other dental work to do, it is wise to get it done first, before applying your new veneers. This will prevent complications down the road.
