At various times in life, you may find yourself in a situation where you have a large gaping hole in your mouth due to an accident or a tooth that had to be extracted. Depending on where the space in your mouth is located, it may visibly ruin your smile or simply make it awkward to chew your food. If you find yourself in this position, it may be time to see what cosmetic dentistry implants can do for you. With the aid of an excellent surgeon you can get your smile and mouth back into prime condition if you are willing to take the time to visit with a cosmetic dentist.

Most of the time, a dental surgeon will use a metal device often referred to as an implant that can be placed into the area where the hole is present. The device is generally made of titanium and is placed directly into the jawbone to replace and occupy the space of the tooth that is missing.

The best part of cosmetic dentistry implants, is that unlike using a gap filler such as a dental bridge, the implant is designed for permanent use so you never have to worry about it again.

The implant is made to replicate an actual tooth root and thus it can anchor down any artificial material that is shaped to represent the missing tooth such as a bridge, crown, or denture.

Thus, if you want to get your jaw line back in tip top shape, you may want to consider putting in cosmetic dentistry implants so that you can restore your smile back to top form. The process is fairly simple and is done with local anesthesia so that outside of some initial pain you can get the look you want.
