Q&A: Customizing Implant Restorations And Bridges

We have discovered that when patients are venturing toward tooth replacement, they are often most anxious about how the finished product is going to look. Granted, regaining the ability to enjoy a full diet of food choices and the ability to articulate one’s words clearly is absolutely wonderful. However, nobody wants these benefits at the cost of sacrificing the beauty of one’s smile. No worries to be had here! We would love to answer a few questions that will help realize one important detail: Whether you choose dental implants or a dental bridge, your smile will look genuine.

Questions and Answers

Question: Is the color of the artificial tooth or teeth going to look like the rest of my smile? How about the way the tissue looks? Will it be similar to real dental tissue or will it look flat?

Answer: We use high-quality materials prized for their lifelike finish when we craft restorations for implants or pontics and crowns for a dental bridge. This means that the texture, translucency, and the way the tissue reflects light will all mimic natural tissue.

Question: Do you furnish patients with crowns or pontics that come from a set of one-size-fits-all options? Or will these restorations be totally customized to match my smile, so it looks like my dental implant or dental bridge is genuinely part of my mouth?

Answer: Everything will be custom-designed and custom-crafted. It will look like your replaced teeth are your teeth!

Question: What happens after the placement of a dental implant restoration or dental bridge? Is it going to feel strange? Will my bite be balanced or will it feel “off?”

Answer: While it may take a day or two to become accustomed to the way this feels, you will adjust very fast. As for the balance of your bite, we will ensure your tooth replacement fits well to promote comfort and optimal function.
