If you have had restorations, orthodontia, or a complete cosmetic dental smile makeover, you want people to notice the final outcome – your unforgettable smile. There is a lot, however, that is going on behind the scenes. Today’s post talks about three critical smile makeover components that are not readily apparent when you smile, but are often necessary for the successful result.
Not everyone in Staten Island wants to flash a metal smile while their teeth are being straightened. Invisible braces keep your secret safe because it is nearly impossible to see them while they are being worn.
If you have metal fillings, you might be interested in replacing them with composite fillings that match your surrounding teeth. You can’t undo the decay, but you can make the metal disappear.
A dental implant is a metal (usually titanium) rod implanted into the bone to replace the missing root after a tooth extraction. The crown and supporting structure are securely and permanently attached to the post. Titanium is super strong and well tolerated by the jaw bone. When the final crown is placed, your new tooth is indistinguishable from the others. Dental implants have many critical advantages over dental crowns. If you are missing teeth, schedule a consultation with Dr. Frederick Hecht to discuss your options.
