Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you when they meet you. As you as you interact with someone face to face, that person is going to be looking at your mouth quite a lot of the time as they listen with their eyes to your words.
But, as we age, our teeth, which get used all the time for the vital act of eating, take quite a battering. By the time we are in our 40s they can be discoloured, chipped, stained, cracked, full of amalgam fillings and we may even have lost one or two. This can make us want to suppress our smiles, but the trouble with that is it affects how people perceive us, and it stops us producing vital happiness chemicals such as endorphins.
At Ace Dental in Camden, dental implants are one treatment we can use to restore your smile to its former glory, even if you have one or two missing teeth.
Why choose dental implants?
Dental implants are increasingly popular as a means to replace teeth, especially if you have only lost one or two, because they can give you back the full function of the teeth with none of the hassles that can come with bridges and dentures.
They are quite an investment compared to bridges and dentures, but, if you are in your 40s and 50s, they make sound financial sense. This is because dental implants should last you for the rest of your life. Bridges and dentures, while cheaper, need to be replaced every 5 to 10 years, so the cost mounts up over time.
At our dental practice in Camden, dental implants are used alongside other cosmetic dental treatments to restore your smile and make you want to grin and bare all again. You can disguise teeth that are chipped, cracked or stained with veneers. You can have your gums evened out with gum contouring. You can have your teeth whitened and then choose implants to match your whiter smile.
If you like a good laugh, you can also have all your amalgam fillings replaced with white ones to match your new implants. Any little chips or cracks on your front biting teeth can be covered with cosmetic bonding.Back to Blog
