A missing tooth can be devastating not only to your smile but also your confidence. Besides not being able to enjoy the foods you love comfortably, you also might not feel like smiling because of your missing tooth. There are, however, excellent solutions for restoring your smile, and here's why you should consider dental implants in Cornelius, NC for your tooth replacement.
#1: Dental Implants Look and Feel Like a Natural Tooth
Because dental implants restore both your tooth and your root, it's almost like having a natural tooth. Your tooth implant allows you to eat as you usually would, and you can also brush and floss your new tooth just like your other teeth. Not to mention that a custom ceramic porcelain crown seamlessly complements your smile, so no one will ever know you were missing a tooth.
#2: Dental Implants Protect Your Oral Health
Because your implant takes the place of your tooth root, it becomes part of your dental anatomy by fusing with your bone. This is possible because your implant is made of titanium, which is biocompatible. Your implant keeps your bone healthy and stimulated, just like your root did and protects it from deterioration.
Your new tooth keeps your neighboring teeth from shifting and protects the alignment of your bite.
#3: Dental Implants Offer Exceptional Longevity
When you invest in a dental implant to restore your smile, you are receiving a restoration that has the potential to last for a lifetime with excellent home care on your part, and regular checkups with your dentist. This makes dental implants the most cost-effective tooth replacement choice since other restorations like a dental bridge will have to be replaced in the future.
