Dental Implants and Cosmetic Dentistry

If you have missing teeth and you are thinking of having cosmetic dentistry, chances are we will discuss dental implants at some point during the planning phase of your treatment. At our Lafayette, LA dental office, we are experts at placing and restoring dental implants. Even if you never thought you could have dental implants, we provide bone grafting and implant placement for some of the toughest cases with outstanding success.

When you have missing teeth, dental implants are by far the best option for replacement. They provide stability in not only your bite but also your bone. This can preserve the integrity and density of your jawbone and your facial structure.

Dental implants look most like your natural teeth. In fact, we custom create each dental implant to look like your teeth in shape, color, size, and shading. Most people do not realize the subtle nuances of tooth color and shapes, but everyone is different. When you consider cosmetic work, this becomes an important consideration.

Dental implants provide the foundation for your cosmetic work. If you have multiple missing teeth, for example, we may recommend an implant-supported bridge to complete the appearance and function of your teeth. 

Because dental implants work like your natural teeth, they provide a stable chewing surface, allowing for you to have a healthy and varying diet to support your nutrition. Nutrition is not only an important part of your health, but eating the foods you enjoy is one of the great pleasures in life.

We believe in function as well as beauty. Dental implants are strong and with the proper care and consideration, they can last decades or even a lifetime. When considering your cosmetic dental treatment, we will provide all of your options and the benefits of each so that you have all of the necessary information to make a decision that gives you the smile of your dreams.
