Missing teeth can be embarrassing for anyone in today’s image conscious society. This is especially true for residents of the smile capital of the world. Around the globe, a truly stunning set of pearly whites is referred to as a “Hollywood Smile.” Residents of Los Angeles, West Hollywood, and surrounding communities take great pride in their beautiful, brilliant, teeth. Losing a tooth is like losing a treasure, and you don’t want a sub-par replacement.
The most common solutions for filling that gap are fixed bridges and implant supported restorations. The best choice can vary depending on your health and personal preferences. In most situations, a dental implant is an ideal solution. It replaces the tooth root, and a gorgeous cosmetic restoration is placed atop it.
The benefits of dental implants include:
- Never worry about an appliance slipping or falling out
- Eat anything you want
- Prevent bone loss, which can lead to a receding jawline
- Implants can last a lifetime with good hygiene and dental care
- Your existing teeth are not altered (this is necessary for fixed bridges)
- Enjoy a beautiful, natural smile
One of the most common concerns that our patients express is time. A dental bridge can often be placed in one visit, using state-of-the art CEREC technology. Implants require a two-phase process, with several weeks or months of healing time. Additionally, many dentists lack the skills to place implants, and refer patients to an associate. Have you wondered if the benefits of implants are worth the trouble? Visit Downtown Dental, where we deliver award-winning dentistry at your convenience.
Dr. Don Mungcal has extensive implantology experience, and performs the procedure himself. It is a quick and comfortable process. You will be provided with a cosmetic temporary restoration. You can continue living your life and loving your smile while your jawbone and the titanium implant gradually fuse. When that process in complete, you will return to our office for the second phase. A beautiful, custom-made crown, bridge, or denture is secured to the implants, and your new smile is ready!
