Midtown Manhattan Cosmetic Dentist
Cosmetic Dentist in Midtown Manhattan
At Contemporary Dental Implant Centre our Midtown Manhattan cosmetic dentist practices cosmetic and restorative dentistry as well as general dentistry in a clean and friendly atmosphere. Thanks to strides in dental technology, dental implants are revolutionizing the way patients feel about their teeth by allowing them to once again have a full set. Dental implants allow us to replace missing teeth in a more permanent way by providing a stable and durable anchor for an artificial tooth to be placed over.
Implants are the perfect solution to replacing missing teeth. Our Midtown Manhattan cosmetic dentist implants small posts made from a strong titanium material that is directly implanted into the bone of the jaw. Once implanted, the titanium post implants are actually stronger than the natural root of a tooth, and never need a root canal or filling. Implant surgery also helps maintain the shape of the jawline and can greatly improve facial aesthetics by filling in the area of the jaw where teeth are missing. Empty spaces in the jaw can create gaps and holes, which warp the jawline over time as it begins to sink in where the teeth once lay. Implant surgery helps to fill the shape of the jawline back in.
Implants can be completed by our Midtown Manhattan cosmetic dentist in one to two surgical procedures at our offices. Afterward, a healing period of two to three months is given, at which point the implant fuses to the bone in the jaw. During this time a diet of soft foods should be eaten in order to protect the new implant. Once the site is healed and the artificial tooth installed the patient can go back to eating and drinking normal foods again. After implant surgery, many patients are happy to find that their implants look just as natural as real teeth.
