A lot of people assume that the solution to a damaged smile lies in cosmetic dentistry. While it’s true that procedures like dental crowns, bridges, and veneers can make teeth prettier, many people don’t realize that dental implants placed by an experienced dental implant dentist can provide all of the benefits that a traditional cosmetic dentist can, and then some.
Dental Implants Restore Function AND Beauty
The role of cosmetic dentistry is to restore your teeth aesthetically; it is concerned with the appearance of your teeth, not their durability or functionality. Dental implant restoration, on the other hand, can give you brand new teeth that look gorgeous and work like natural teeth. At The Dental Implant Place in Ft Worth, we will not only give you a brand new tooth root (your dental implant) that will stimulate your bone and gum tissue, but we will also provide you with a beautiful zirconia crown or bridge to be permanently cemented to this anchor. This is especially a better treatment when teeth need to be replaced rather than “restored”. Dental implants offer superior longevity and function overall than pure cosmetic dentistry
Zirconia > Porcelain
Cosmetic dental appliances like crowns, bridges, and veneers are often made from porcelain, the same plastic material used to make dentures. This material is far less durable than zirconia, the material we use at The Dental Implant Place to make the crowns and bridges that will be cemented on top of your dental implants. Zirconia is the hardest material available in dentistry for making a realistic-looking artificial tooth and looks more lifelike than porcelain in the vast majority of cases.
The Cost for These Procedures Are Usually Similar
Believe it or not, it’s often barely more costly to completely replace a tooth with a dental implant and crown than it is to restore a tooth with a root canal and crown. In fact, dental implants can sometimes be less expensive than the cost of maintaining unhealthy teeth. Obviously, the cost of dental implants or cosmetic dentistry will vary depending on the dental implant dentist or cosmetic dentist you visit, but overall, the ballpark range of pricing is fairly close. Moreover, dental implants will likely last longer, and if they’re placed at The Dental Implant Place in Fort Worth, they will usually cost less to maintain.
