Dental implants are commonly used to restore a smile when teeth are missing or unable to support and retain a crown or dentures. An implant is a titanium post inserted into the bone, mimicking the root of your tooth. Not everyone qualifies for dental implants because the jawbone must have adequate bone structure.
At Half Moon Bay Family Dentistry, we use a CBCT cone beam with 3D imaging to create a detailed image of your bone structure and determine whether there is enough bone to support the implants.
After placement, a healing period is required so the metal post can integrate with your bone. Once it’s ready, a dental crown will be placed on the implant to replace the missing tooth.
A smile makeover is just what it sounds like! We use a combination of restorative and cosmetic dental procedures to restore the function of your teeth and the appearance of your smile. Smile makeovers correct uneven, chipped, stained, or misaligned teeth with fillings, crowns & bridges, and dental implants. They may also include teeth whitening.
Misshapen and crooked teeth or large spaces in the mouth can affect how you speak and make it harder to eat. Dr. Riley and Dr. Gabby enjoy seeing the difference they make in so many patients’ lives, and they can do this for you by creating a unique treatment plan that meets your needs.
