This is a very common question among dental implant patients. Changes to the mouth or teeth can noticeably affect a person’s appearance, their social interactions, and overall confidence. However, before undergoing the dental implant surgery process, you want to make sure that you will feel like yourself with your new teeth. Yes, with your new dental implants, you will be able to eat virtually anything and regain your confidence to laugh, speak, and smile like you have always wanted to. How do my oral surgeon and restorative dentist make sure that my dental implants will look natural?
Color and Size
To give the most natural look, artificial teeth with a realistic shade and size will be used–we can even match your old teeth as close as possible. If you are only replacing a few teeth, a professional will help you to find the best color and size match to complement your existing teeth. If you wish to whiten your teeth, make sure you do this before choosing the shade of the artificial teeth before the implant surgery. Porcelain teeth themselves cannot be bleached–so you will need to whiten beforehand to assure the best possible match.
To ensure that your dental implants will appear natural and make you feel like yourself again, it is important to use an experienced oral surgeon in addition to a restorative dentist.
