When our first little teeth come in as babies, they are usually pretty perfect. But, when our second set of teeth, or our “adult” teeth come in, many of us begin to see problems appear.
Or perhaps your adult teeth initially grew in fine, but over time they have become chipped, broken and discolored. From one or two slightly crooked teeth, to several extremely crooked teeth and gaps, our adult teeth can be problematic.
But, thankfully, at Dental Image there are many options to create beautiful smiles that can improve self-confidence, fix your bite and even out your appearance.
One of the most common forms of tooth transformation is braces. Many of us have or will have braces. Very common in the teenage years, braces are bonded to existing teeth to help push and pull them to their proper places. There are different types of braces including Empower, Damon Clear, and Invisalign.
Crowns provide improvement not just for the appearance of your smile, but also the function of your bite. Crowns are made from porcelain and are custom fitted to your mouth, in shape and color.
A bridge is created when one or more missing teeth creates a gap in your mouth. A crown is created for the teeth on either side of the gap and a fake tooth is situated in the middle. Dental bridges look very natural are a good option for fixing a gap.
Veneers are made from porcelain and are extremely thin shells that are then bonded to your teeth. They are good choices for stained or chipped teeth, to close gaps, or for teeth that are irregularly shaped.
Tooth whitening done in the dentist’s office is stronger and more effective than the at-home versions. It involves a chemical compound that is left on the teeth for about an hour to remove stains and restore natural, shiny white teeth.
Dental restoration is accomplished by using resin to cover and reshape chipped or uneven teeth. It is minimally invasive and if cared for properly can last a long time.
Dental Implants have gained a lot of traction over the last couple of decades and there’s a good reason why. Implants offer a permanent solution for your smile and your bite. They help maintain your face’s shape as well.
How do dental implants work? What makes them different from other dental procedures?
Dental implants procedure involves surgically placed titanium anchors in your jaw bone. The bone itself will grow and create a permanent grip around the anchor. Then a porcelain crown is attached to the anchor.
In addition to single dental implants is All-on-4 dental implants. Instead of replacing single teeth, the All-on-4 procedure is more cost effective and more efficient.
As the name suggests, the procedure involves replacing all of the upper or lower teeth on 4 anchors. This process allows for the immediate placement of a full fixed bridge containing 10 to 14 teeth.
Single dental implants in Tijuana cost anywhere from 25 to 65 percent less than in the U.S. depending on how involved the procedure is. All-on-4 dental implants cost 50 percent less than in the U.S.
Dental implants don’t just look better, they last longer and are better for your overall oral health. Implants stimulate the growth of new bone tissue in your jaw, creating a more stable bite for years to come.
