Try as we might, we still haven’t figured out a way to regrow teeth – so for now, dental implants will have to do! The good news? Dental implants are the next best thing to natural teeth. They look natural, feel natural, and you’ll be able to confidently flash that smile with the best of ‘em! And Enamel Dentistry Lantana Place will make sure you have fun in the process, with amenities like beer and wine, Netflix, and a hip inclusive vibe that will have you grinning ear to ear. We’re an independent female-owned and operated practice that makes dental care completely focused on you with the highest standard of care available. And we’re decidedly Austin – what more could you ask for?
We know how missing teeth can affect your life. From hiding your smile to avoiding your favorite foods, missing teeth make many things that are often taken for granted difficult. But, we’re here to change all that! Dental implants are long-lasting, durable, and don’t require any special care. Just brush and floss normally, and you’re good to go! Missing teeth can cause your existing teeth to shift, which can cause alignment issues or make oral hygiene more difficult. Bridges were once the standard solution, but they require us to remove some of the enamel of your existing teeth. That’s not the case with dental implants! The space left by your missing tooth will be filled with an artificial tooth – no need to touch the neighboring teeth’s enamel.
We use state-of-the-art Conebeam CT 3D imaging to plan dental implants. This gives us a clear, detailed image of the structure of your mouth, including how much bone is present. There are two parts to a dental implant: the implant itself and an artificial tooth that’s attached after the healing process is complete. The implant is essentially a small titanium screw or post that acts as an artificial tooth root. During the dental implant procedure, the post inserted directly into the jaw, where it will become permanently bonded. While you’re healing (which generally takes 3-6 months), we’ll work with an outside lab to create a crown that will match your teeth perfectly. We’ll also continue to check in with you to make sure everything is healing nicely. When you come back for your second appointment, we’ll check the fit of the crown and if all looks good – attach it to the post. How easy is that?
At Enamel Dentistry, our goal is to make dental care enjoyable and stress-free. We know “enjoyable” and “dentist” are two words that generally don’t go together – but we think you’ll agree that we make it happen! So if you’ve been searching for an office near Barton Creek to get a dental implant procedure, schedule your appointment with Enamel Dentistry today!
