Park Ridge Implant Dentists Explain Crafting a New Smile

painting crafting smileWhile customizing your physical appearance through cosmetic surgery is relatively new on the timeline of scientific advancement, improving a smile’s appearance has long been intertwined with contemporary dental health care. In fact, by 200 A.D., the ancient Etruscans were crafting dental crowns and bridges made of gold, almost 400 years after they began crafting dental restorations made of ivory. Today’s attention to your smile has generated a wealth of understanding about its health and beauty, which has resulted in a plethora of dental care options that can be custom-designed specifically to rejuvenate your smile. Your Park Ridge implant dentists, Dr. Maria and Dr. Thanasi Loukas, take a look at advanced dental restoration, and how to determine exactly which treatment is right for you.

Your Smile’s Unique, Like a Fingerprint

Like any good health care, there is no one-size-fits-all solution for any dental treatment. The size, shape, and layout of your smile, as well as the issues that afflict it, are unique to you, and treating it requires personalized treatment designed according to your goals and needs. For instance, cosmetic blemishes, such as craze lines (minor cracks in your tooth enamel), stains, and slightly chipped or oddly spaced teeth, can be rectified with the appropriate cosmetic dental treatment, like dental bonding, professional teeth-whitening, and/or porcelain veneers. As implant dentists in Park Ridge, Dr. Maria and Dr. Thanasi can even completely restore your smile after suffering significant tooth loss.

A Treatment That’s Just Right

Whether it’s to correct dental damage or eradicate a dental disease, your ideal dental treatment should address your smile’s integrity in the future. Reinforcing and covering a tooth that’s been ravished by decay could prove fruitless if the decay isn’t completely excavated. Likewise with gum disease and any other dental health issues. In the case of tooth loss, dental implants serve as prosthetic tooth roots that are surgically inserted into your jawbone. Replacing lost roots, which your jaw relies on for an adequate nutrient supply, helps restore the stimulation that tells your body to nourish your jawbone, helping to prevent jawbone deterioration, facial collapse, and further tooth loss.
