Are Dental Implants Natural Looking?

August 3, 2018

Many patients who are interested in dental implants have a concern about whether or not their new teeth will look and feel natural. They wonder whether people be able to tell that their teeth are not “their own.” So many of our dental implant patients report that their dental implants not only look natural, but also feel like their teeth. Dental implant patients learn that dental implants can appear just as natural and perform just as well as natural teeth. It may help to learn how the dental implant is structured. Dental implants aren’t just the part you see (the prosthesis), they are also the tiny titanium post that is fixed into the patient’s jaw. In this blog post, we’ll look at how we create functional and aesthetically pleasing smiles with dental implants—either traditional dental implants or Same Day Teeth®.

Patients often question whether their restorations will look natural and fit in with the natural teeth they currently have. They understandably want people to notice their smile and not their implants. Whether you are talking about traditional dental implants or Same Day Teeth®, patients can rest assured that their restorations will blend in virtually seamlessly with their natural teeth. Dental implants enhance the function of the patient’s bite. The patient will also be pleased with the aesthetic results of dental implants.

Our Same Day Teeth® procedure is known for having the same great aesthetic and functional results as traditional dental implants without the long waiting period between the implant being installed and the restoration (the new teeth) being placed. Same Day Teeth® is able to condense this whole process into one day thanks to our state of the art planning, high-tech imaging, and the work of our prosthodontist, who creates a functional and aesthetically pleasing restoration which complements your natural teeth.

How does Same Day Teeth® work?

The Same Day Teeth® protocol provides patients with the same state of the art technology-driven planning as our traditional dental implants but with the added benefit of reducing the waiting time between the implants (the tiny metal post) being placed and the prosthetic (your new tooth) being inserted down to a single office visit.

Traditional dental implants require at least two surgical We are able to reduce the waiting time so dramatically in part due to the work of our prosthodontist, Dr. Philip J. Hedger. Our prosthetics are milled from a solid block of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) using impressions and computer images of the patient’s bite. PMMA is non-toxic and highly biocompatible. PMMA is strong, durable and can be matched to your natural teeth to create a functional and aesthetically pleasing smile.
