Let’s Look at Dental Implants
Dental implants have become a popular option for Spring patients who are weary of having dentures or simply need a replacement for a lost tooth. Dental implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the tooth area that would typically be occupied by the root. They are well designed to mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Putting the implants in does require minor surgery. A period of time after the implant is required to ensure it takes hold and so the bone tissue can build up and anchor the device. Implants require thorough oral hygiene and proper care to guarantee they last for a long time.
What About Invisalign?
Invisalign has become a popular way for patients to straighten their teeth. Invisalign are invisible, removable and comfortable aligners that give patients a beautiful smile in less than one and half years. There are no metal wires or brackets. Patients enjoy that fact that they do not have to limit food or activities due to the fact that Invisalign can be taken out if necessary.
Check Out Veneers
Veneers by Dr. Morris offers patients a solution for badly stained, shaped or crooked teeth. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are cemented over the front teeth with uneven surfaces. They are best for chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked teeth. Veneers can also be used to help with gaps between the front teeth. Veneers have a long life expectancy and resist permanent staining from food and beverages.
