In today’s blog, your Park Ridge dentists, Dr. Maria Loukas and Dr. Thanasi Loukas, answer questions about our cosmetic dental solutions to tooth loss.
Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry
Question: Does Loukas General Dentistry uses lifelike dental materials?
Answer: Yes. From porcelain crowns to acrylic dentures, Dr. Maria or Thanasi Loukas will work hard to ensure your restorations blend seamlessly with your smile. Your dental prosthetics will be designed and fabricated based on impressions, photographs, and x-rays of your smile.
Question: Will a bridge restore smiles missing multiple teeth?
Answer: Yes. A bridge consists of an artificial tooth with a crown on each end. The crowns are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap in your smile. This anchors your bridge into place, allowing you to eat and speak normally.
Question: Does my Park Ridge IL cosmetic dentists offer dental implants?
Answer: Yes. Dental implants begin with biocompatible titanium posts inserted directly into the jawbone. The bone bonds with implants, securing your restorations for up to 25 years. Finally, a crown will be placed into the post, renewing your smile.
Question: Can I receive implant dentures?
Answer: Yes. In addition to single tooth replacement, a set of custom-made dentures can be placed onto the implant posts. Implant dentures are fixed, so they don’t slip or require the use of messy adhesives.
