Advantages Offered by Dental Implants

NYC Cosmetic Dentists Serving Manhattan and New York, NY

Dental implants are the most structurally sound and cosmetically pleasing restoration for missing teeth. By replacing the root of a missing tooth, each dental implant works to secure a custom-made restoration such as a dental crown or dentures, offering unparalleled function and absolutely natural-looking aesthetics.

If you are missing one or more teeth, the NYC cosmetic dentists at our office welcome an opportunity to meet with you and discuss this option and to help you decide if dental implants are the right choice for your smile.

To schedule a dental implant consultation with Dr. Mello or Dr. Tabib, please contact NYC Smile Design today. Appointments can also be made by calling our New York cosmetic dentistry office at 212-452-3344.

Benefits of Osseointegration

Osseointegration is the process by which dental implants become accepted as replacement tooth roots. Because dental implants integrate into the bone of the jaw, they are the only tooth replacement option capable of preventing jaw shrinkage and collapse. Even dental bridges, which offer fantastic strength and attractive smile restoration, will eventually need to be adjusted as the body absorbs minerals around the missing tooth for redistribution. Only dental implants serve to prevent this problem, marking one of their most significant advantages over other tooth replacement options.

In addition to preventing structural changes to your jaw, dental implants:

  • Will not come loose or fall out
  • Will remain in place, barring disease or trauma, for a lifetime
  • Restore complete strength and function
  • Provide the most reliable foundation for porcelain crowns and other restorations

Easy to care for, natural-looking, and optimally functional, dental implants offer myriad cosmetic and functional benefits that simply cannot be matched by other options. During your tooth replacement or smile makeover consultation with Dr. Tabib or Dr. Mello, we can discuss these benefits with you in greater detail and help you decide if dental implants offer the right benefits for your needs.

Tooth Replacement Options

Dental implants are remarkable in their strength and function, but are not the best choice for every patient. If implants are not right for your needs, our New York cosmetic dentists will cover alternatives that can restore strength and beauty to your smile – even if such solutions may eventually require adjusting to accommodate shifts in bone density. Please call us at 212-452-3344 today to schedule your initial consultation and learn about the many restorative dentistry options we offer to patients living in Manhattan and all surrounding areas of New York.
