Dental Implants A Smart Choice for your Smile

Dental Implants A Smart Choice for your Smile

At Smart Smile Dental we know that if you have to have a tooth extracted, or are currently missing a tooth, you may not feel like smiling. Fortunately dental implants are an ideal solution to permanently correct and retain an attractive and functional set of teeth, no matter the reason for your tooth loss.

Dental implants are surgically inserted into the bone where the natural tooth root was. They are usually a titanium alloy screw as the tooth root with a dental crown fitted on top to complete the procedure.

The result is a permanent replacement tooth with almost the exact characteristics of the original tooth.
