Achieve a Better Smile with Porcelain Veneers and Dental Implants
Unsightly tooth chips, cracks and gaps may cause you to shy away from a broad smile in front of friends, family and coworkers. Missing teeth and tooth flaws are embarrassing and often make you appear older than your given age. Pearce Dental Group can restore a beautiful smile with dental implants and porcelain veneers.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the most effective and longest-lasting tooth replacement option. A titanium post is implanted into the jawbone as an artificial tooth root, and then an abutment connects the post to a dental crown. Your jawbone fuses with the dental implant, and the crown is made to your desired shade and shape to blend in with surrounding teeth. The dental crown mimics the sheen of your tooth enamel, providing a natural look, feel and function.
These tooth restorations are durable and often last a lifetime with good oral health and regular dental exams. Dental implants don’t require special care or upkeep, just proper dental hygiene with brushing and flossing.
In addition to the cosmetic appeal of dental implants and ease of care, the implanted post ensures your jawbone integrity. The gap left by a missing tooth leads to bone resorption from the lack of stimulation, but a dental implant acts like your natural tooth root and fuses with the jawbone. Jawbone degradation changes your facial shape, creating a sagging and gaunt appearance that makes you look older.
Dental implants provide cosmetic and restorative benefits, decreasing gum disease and the risk of further tooth loss.
Why Choose Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers, or dental veneers, are thin shells bonded to the front of a damaged or worn tooth. These veneers can cover many tooth flaws, including tooth stains that don’t respond to whitening treatments as well as misshapen, chipped, cracked and/or misaligned teeth. Pearce Dental Group offers wafer-thin porcelain veneers that require minimal enamel reduction (if any), preserving most or all of the tooth structure.
Veneers are customized to your desired shape, size and shade. You can care for your porcelain veneers with regular brushing and flossing, though you will want to avoid foods and habits that may cause the material to chip or crack. Porcelain veneers do not stain, so many of our Cincinnati patients choose to whiten their teeth at the same time for a truly revitalized smile.
