Dental Implants As Part Of A Smile Makeover

Having a smile to be proud of can change a person’s life. People who have been living with teeth that make them not want to smile, are depriving themselves of one of their most important communication tools, and of one of the body’s natural ways to produce feel-good chemicals. Cosmetic dentists have a menu of treatments to improve people’s smiles. One of them is to replace lost teeth with dental implants in Camden.

Cosmetic Dentist

A good cosmetic dentist will be able to put together a treatment plan involving different treatments to give the patient the smile they have always wanted. Cosmetic dentists understand the dimensions, shapes and colour the teeth and gums need in order to create a harmonious balance within the mouth. Too big or too small, too white or too yellow, too gummy, not gummy enough; these are all important considerations. Dental implants in Camden can play an important role in a smile makeover, available from various dentists such as Ace Dental.

White Teeth

If the patient is having their teeth whitened (maybe they got discoloured through the use of particular antibiotics when they were a child), then the implants need to match the colour the teeth will be after whitening and not before. The dentist will therefore probably recommend having whitening done and then having the porcelain of the implants matched to the new teeth colour, rather than try and guess the shade before whitening.

Porcelain Crowns

The crowns on dental implants in Camden are made of porcelain. These are made by highly-trained technicians. There are many shades of porcelain to choose from. Once chosen, the technicians shape it to match the rest of the teeth. So, if the patient is having veneers on the rest of their teeth, the implant crown will be made to match the shape and colour of the veneers. If the patient is having their gum line reshaped, the implant crown will be made to fit into the new gum line.

Timing and the order of treatments, plays an important part in a smile makeover. This is why patients need to see an experienced cosmetic dentist. They will draw up a plan and a schedule, with costings, so the patient will know what treatment happens when.
