Fill In the Gaps

You've likely experienced the frustration and confusion of a phone call where every other word is cut off due to poor reception. Those dental implants"gaps" can make a big difference in how information is communicated. Similarly, when you have missing teeth, you may be sending the wrong message to those with whom you interact. At Davila and Velazquez in Greenville, NC, our dentists use dental implants as a permanent and attractive way to close those gaps, improving both your confidence and your dental health. Dr. Laura Davila and Dr. Norberto Velazquez answer a few questions about the benefits of dental implants here.

Why is a full smile important?

Many research studies have shown that having a nice smile is seen as a measure of success, attractiveness, even trustworthiness upon first meeting someone. Conversely, people tend to perceive those who have missing teeth as being unhealthy or lazy. Your Greenville dentist knows that tooth loss is a common occurrence, but also understands that first impressions are essential. Dental implants fill in the gaps left by missing teeth perfectly; no one will know they're not your real teeth!

How do dental implants work?

Dental implants start with a small metal post that rests in the space where your missing tooth once was. Over time, the small divot that your Greenville dentist creates in your jawbone will grow back, allowing the post to essentially become part of your anatomy. It's then that the abutment that connects the post to the final portion of the implant, called the crown, can be attached. Although it sounds like an in-depth procedure, placing a dental implant doesn't take much time at all and can be performed at our office.
