As life happens, there’s a chance of accidents happening or decay setting into your teeth which may cause you to lose a tooth. Luckily, there are ways to complete your smile with a durable and long-lasting option. Dr. David Cooley in Portage, MI, and serving Kalamazoo, MI, can help you determine if dental implants are the best option to fill in the gaps in your smile.

How Dental Implants Can Complete Your Smile

Your smile is one of the first things that people may notice when they first meet you. Losing a tooth can make you feel embarrassed to show off your smile. Dental implants from your dentist serving Portage and Kalamazoo, MI, can help you regain the confidence to show off your dazzling smile again.

Your dentist will insert a titanium post into your gums, which will fuse into your jawbone, replacing the tooth root that you lost. This can restore stimulation to your gums, helping keep your jawbone intact for longer and keeping your face from sagging in the future.

Once your gums heal, the post will be topped with a dental crown that is custom-made to match the shape, size, and color of your teeth. This will create a completely natural look that will be indistinguishable from others. Not only will your dental implant create a cosmetically pleasing look but will restore function to your mouth. You’ll be able to bite and chew without having to avoid parts of your mouth or even avoiding your favorite foods because they’re too difficult to chew.
